5 opponents for CM Punk if he returns to the WWE
CM Punk’s abrupt departure from WWE in January shocked just about everyone from his fellow wrestlers and WWE management, to the fans and the media alike. Since then the relationship between WWE and CM Punk has turned nuclear level toxic, especially with CM Punk’s scathing interview on Colt Cabana’s podcast and WWE sending Punk his letter of termination on the day of his wedding.
In the period that’s followed, CM Punk unsuccessfully tried to get into the movie business before his shock signing for the UFC in late 2014 and making his debut at UFC 202 earlier this year against Mickey Gall. Punk tapped out in the first round and it looks like his MMA career is over.
Where does CM Punk go from here? Could he return to the WWE? Although on face value the chances of that are low, Vince McMahon has long been known to put personal feelings aside to do what’s best for business.
And quite frankly, CM Punk is best for business. After Goldberg’s return, this is the next huge return that WWE need to orchestrate.
CM Punk’s return could see a number of fresh rivalries for him in a WWE and some old one’s that need revisiting. Here are 5 fresh matches in the WWE for CM Punk if/when he returns.
