Former WWE Champion needs to beat CM Punk to get back on track
A former WWE Champion must confront CM Punk in the weeks ahead to get back on track.
CM Punk made his epic return to WWE this past Saturday night at Survivor Series in Chicago. The Allstate Arena erupted as the 45-year-old returned to the company during the final moments of the premium live event on Saturday. Punk showed up following the Men's WarGames match, which saw Cody Rhodes' team earn a victory over Drew McIntyre and The Judgment Day.
McIntyre decided to align himself with The Judgment Day after failing to capture the World Heavyweight Championship from Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel on November 4. It didn't work at Survivor Series, and McIntyre was seen storming out of the ring after the loss in the Men's WarGames match.
The former champion is scheduled to battle Sami Zayn next Monday night on the red brand. If he emerges victorious, McIntyre should consider focusing his attention on CM Punk. The controversial star has likely returned to try and get the WrestleMania main event that has eluded him his entire career. McIntyre is determined to get back to the top of the card and could choose to confront Punk to let him know that he is standing in his way.
