CM Punk has shaken the world of professional wrestling ever since his return to WWE programming two weeks ago on FOX. Although he is still not employed by WWE in any capacity, there are always rumors of him making a return to the company officially.
Recently, PWInsider reported that WWE is planning on roping in Punk as the next guest for Stone Cold Steve Austin‘s Broken Skulls podcast, which debuted on WWE Network after Survivor Series.
Austin and Punk have crossed paths in WWE before, during Punk’s initial run, and there were always rumors of Austin returning for a final dream match against the self-proclaimed Best in the World.
CM Punk signing with FOX immediately set off the speculation alarms and led many to believe that he could return at Survivor Series, which took place in his hometown of Chicago. However, Punk was not backstage for any of the shows this week, which falls in line with the comments made by Punk on Backstage last week.
Punk clearly stated that he is yet to have talks with anyone in WWE, and his current role is 100% FOX. Even WWE COO Triple H denied having any conversations with Punk but said that there is always a possibility and the fans should never say never.
Austin’s debut episode with The Undertaker featured two-hours of quality insight into the mysterious life of the Deadman, who has recently started breaking kayfabe. Undertaker remained true to his character for nearly three decades, before finally becoming Mark Callaway once again.
Steve Austin and CM Punk are two extremely similar personalities, who reached the top of the WWE mountain in their respective careers. Both hated politics and were never the ones to hold back their thoughts.
A two-hour sitdown interview with Punk would surely reveal a lot of secrets and could be an intriguing discussion between two of the best talkers in WWE history.
