Shawn Michaels finally breaks silence after CM Punk returns to WWE after nearly 10 years

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels recently opened up on CM Punk's return at Survivor Series this past weekend.

Punk captured headlines the world over after he returned to WWE after almost a decade. The Best in the World also showed up on RAW this past Monday and cut an emotionally charged promo claiming he was finally back home.


In a recent clip from the Cheap Heat podcast with Peter Rosenberg, Michaels mentioned that he was thrilled to see Punk back. He acknowledged that the 45-year-old may not be the most popular guy backstage but felt it didn't matter if he was good at his job. Shawn also claimed he was happy for the WWE Universe because they finally got what they wanted.

"I wasn't always the most popular guy to people but I was really good at my job and that's the reason I feel I've had one here in the WWE for almost 40 years. Again, I'm dependable and I'm good at my job. And I think, if you are that, there's always an opportunity for you here, especially if you want one. Look, I'm happy for him, I'm happy for the company, I'm happy for the WWE fanbase, the WWE Universe. Stories like these are always fantastic even if they are controversial, that's part of what makes them fantastic." [From 0:33 - 1:07]
