Punk shows interest in a return
It has been over five years since CM Punk left WWE, but he's still one of the hottest free agents in all of Pro Wrestling. Punk turned from a mid-carder in WWE's version of ECW to one of the biggest Superstars on the main roster. His Pipebomb promo on an episode of Monday Night RAW in 2011 is regarded as one of the greatest segments of all time.
2019 has seen a never-ending string of speculation and rumors about Punk making a return to the industry. The arrival of All Elite Wrestling only added to the hullabaloo, but nothing came out of it. Recently, in a Reddit AMA, Punk made waves when he stated that he is open to a WWE return, but only for a large pay, though he didn't specify the amount.
