A former Universal Champion recently opened up on CM Punk's return to WWE after nearly ten years

At the 2023 Survivor Series WarGames, fans witnessed a blockbuster comeback of The Best in the World. The 45-year-old star appeared in his hometown, Chicago after the team of Cody Rhodes, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Jey Uso defeated The Judgment Day faction and Drew McIntyre in the WarGames match.


The Second City Saint has had a reputation for having altercations with stars throughout his stint in different wrestling promotions. Among the likes of Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, Punk had a beef with one more current WWE Superstar - Kevin Owens.

He is a one-time Universal Champion, a one-time NXT Champion, a two-time Intercontinental Champion, a three-time United States Champion, a one-time RAW Tag Team Champion, and a one-time SmackDown Tag Team Champion.

During a recent interview with James H. Williams, Kevin Owens was asked about the returns of The Best in the World and Randy Orton:

"I just wanna have fun at work. So if he's [CM Punk] has got that mindset, great," he said. [10:29 - 10:37]
