CM Punk had teased an appearance at the All In event recently

What’s the story?

After seemingly teasing an appearance at the upcoming "All In" event which is self-funded by Cody Rhodes and The Bucks, CM Punk took to Twitter during SmackDown Live last night to address the rumours which have had the world of wrestling abuzz for the past few days.

Is Punk all in? Well, kind of but not in the way that you'd think...

In case you didn’t know…

Punk retired from professional wrestling in 2014. As one of the most loved indie talents of all time, he's a former WWE Champion.

It's always been thought that hell may freeze over before CM Punk returns to WWE after he alleged medical negligence on their part. Additionally, it had even been said that Punk may possibly never even return to professional wrestling after seemingly falling out of love with the business.

Punk seems to be geared up for another shot at UFC glory in June, but an interesting interaction with The Young Bucks led fans to think otherwise.

The heart of the matter

Well, CM Punk took to Twitter to address the rumours.

And after almost an hour of keeping the world of wrestling on the edge of their seats, the former WWE Champion posted part two.


What’s next?

It seems like CM Punk just wanted to troll the wrestling world - and, man, he did a great job of it. It turns out the WWE turned UFC star just wanted to show his support for the Chicago Cubs.

CM Punk is rumoured to be fighting Mike Jackson at UFC 225 which takes place on 9 June in Chicago, Illinois and All In isn't until September, though, so maybe there's still a chance.

Author’s take

Well, love him or hate him, Punk definitely knows how to get everyone excited about the possibility of a return to wrestling. Sadly, he's equally great at trolling people online.

Here's hoping this is all just part of the rollercoaster that leads to CM Punk returning to the squared circle!
