CM Punk New Orleans Sightings: WrestleMania 30 To Feature WWE Return Due To AJ Lee Engagement?

CM Punk: WrestleMania 30 To Feature WWE Return Due To AJ Lee Engagement?

Will CM Punk’s WWE return happen at WrestleMania 30 tomorrow night? The New Orleans sightings seem to indicate he’ll at least be there physically.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, some people seem to think that Philip Brooks’ engagement to AJ Lee in real life pretty much seals the deal. After all, if you’re going to make a lifelong commitment to a WWE Diva then it would be kind of awkward to both support your wife and not have anything to do with the organization she works for on a daily basis.

CM Punk has already been spotted in New Orleans for WrestleMania XXX, although whether he’s there as participant or to simply watch AJ Lee defend her Diva championship is the question of the day. But you just know his name will start getting chanted by fans even if he’s simply spotted sitting in the back.

Officially, CM Punk’s WWE contract does not expire until this summer so if Phil comes back in any official capacity then it’s likely to be tonight. When management has been questioned on the issue it’s also been avoidance, or to claim the leave of absence is temporary. For example, Vince McMahon claimed Punk was merely on a sabbatical and in the same time frame even Hulk Hogan talked about CM Punk being on vacation somewhere.

Many have questioned the real reason that CM Punk left the WWE. Some say he’s just tired of the management now allowing him to see his full potential in the WWE and now Triple H is offended with Philip Brooks because of the way he’s been avoiding the authority.

But Phil’s friend Steven Austin insists that CM Punk will be back:

“I’m telling you, I’m going to stick to my prediction that CM Punk is going to make his return at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. I made this prediction two months ago here on the show. It’s been a long time, I think he’s cooled his jets, he’s got some rest, and I think it’s time to get back to work. I don’t see him participating in a match but it would be great to see him in a run-in to establish himself, to entrench himself immediately in a memorable and just a great moment, and I would say plant himself firmly in the middle of an angle, because he would be the angle, by attacking whoever he sees fit to attack or asserting his presence rather, whatever the case may be. But I see CM Punk coming back at WrestleMania 30. Who knows if it will happen. We will know in about six short days when WrestleMania actually happens.”

In any case, Twitter is abuzz with CM Punk New Orleans sightings:

Do you think CM Punk will return for WrestleMania 30 in an official capacity?

    Timothy Kevin Crouch Jr. Hahaha. That is funny. You may have ran into him but I added these pictures of him to my pinterest MONTHS ago.

  4. Courtney Scott

    Timothy Kevin Crouch Jr. They are the SAME pictures. lol. I, for one, do think he will make his return at Wrestlemania but those pictures are the same pictures. I am happy to link you to my Pinterest board and the CM Punk FB group I admin that has these pictures with the dates posted.

  5. Timothy Kevin Crouch Jr.

    Courtney Scott they can look the same. Also they did not say he'll return at wrestlemania.

  6. Sharon Spicer

    He's coming back to the EEW, because he's profile and stuff are still being showen, He was probably on his break/vacation that all the superstares, get unless they are fored on vacation because of injuries.

  7. Ichiron Forty-Seven

    These pictures are old. They are lying to you.

  8. Brad Andres

    you dumbasses. that's not CM Punk. CM Punk was spotted in a Navy ship searching for that over-hyped missing Malaysian plane 2 hours ago.

    CM Punk will cause HHH to lose to Daniel Bryan , therefore putting himself at the head of the anti-authority angle and will allow Daniel Bryan to win the title later in the triple threat match.

    Oh holy shit!!! This is unheard of. A man supporting his future wife! He couldn't be there for that. I'd hope he returns at WM30, but give the guy a fucking break. He didn't leave for mass speculation. He isn't there for it either. There is a reason he isn't making it obvious he's there, it's not for WWE to introduce a storyline, he is there to support his future wife.

  11. Timmy Stewart

    Yeah… No he wont. Bryan isn't going to win dirty. That would just shit on everything he has done during the many times he's been screwed. Having Punk come in and hand him the championship would not only be stupid, it would be counter-productive. If he had any part of that story he would screw Bryan and return as a heel. Punk will not be helping him win as it would just be fucking retarded.
