Recently, CM Punk spoke to ESPN regarding his future in the wrestling industry, and talked about how texting him for a potential return is not a good way to do business. He wanted individuals to come and talk to him directly rather than text him to negotiate a possible return to the squared circle.

CM Punk is scheduled to appear at Starrcast next month, around the same time as AEW’s premier outing All Out. Many are speculating Punk’s official return to wrestling to be at All Out, but Dave Meltzer ruled out any return for Punk.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Punk and AEW have currently no deal in place for a return, and there are no signs of Punk returning to the ring anytime soon.

This could be a major update when it comes to AEW and their programming, with their weekly show set to start in a little over two months from now. Having a superstar like CM Punk will straight up put them in the big leagues with WWE, but they will have to settle with Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho along with the others for the time being.

Cody responded to CM Punk’s comments by saying one of their executives did meet Punk in person and they texted him only after they couldn’t connect with him on the phone.

Cody also mentioned that CM Punk could possibly move to WWE and the door to AEW was open for Punk if he ever wished to come in. AEW currently have a decent roster filled with great wrestlers, but apart from Jericho and Moxley, the rest have not made consistent appearances on national television for a prolonged time.

CM Punk may have last wrestled a match over five years ago, but his craze is still alive to this day. Many fans are desperate to see the Cult of Personality play once again inside a wrestling arena.
