There is very little doubt that almost every WWE fan would love to have CM Punk return to the ring for another run. As a recurring panelist on WWE Backstage, Punk discusses wrestling and gives his thoughts on superstars as they are today. He’s often asked about getting back in the ring and has now said that if the money is right, he’d be willing to return to professional wrestling for a match with one of three specific superstars.
Despite Punk’s enduring popularity among fans, he has mostly been adamant about wanting to stay retired. He has hinted, however, that a return is not totally out of the question, but it would have to be the right circumstances and everything would need to fall right in line.
On a recent episode of Swings & Mrs., Punk discussed a number of topics, but his possible return to the ring was brought up as expected. When it came to him possibly coming back for another match, the retired grappler first said that the money from WWE would need to be right.
In addition to that, Punk named three specific superstars he’d come back to wrestle.
“As far as people that I’ve worked with before…if there was a clean slate…if the money was right…I think a guy like Daniel Bryan. I would go, “I would listen to your idea.’ If you said, ‘John Cena,’ I’d probably listen to your idea. Rey Mysterio? I would listen to your idea.”
Punk has faced all three superstars in the past, but he obviously has something in mind with them.
As reported by The Inquisitr, Bryan revealed earlier this year that he was upset at a missed opportunity. He had always hoped for a Bryan vs. Punk match at WrestleMania, but it was simply something that never came about or took place.
Punk has waged wars with Cena over the years, and the fans absolutely ate up their promos and matches. The two were always great at getting the crowds into their matches and making them a true part of the feud.
Mysterio and Punk also had some memorable matches in the past, and there is no doubt that they could put on a great show again.
While Punk is a part of WWE Backstage, he is an employee of Fox and not one of Vince McMahon’s performers. Seeing him back around the product, though, has given fans some hope that he’ll get back in the ring again one day. While it may never end up happening, everyone will likely benefit from the big-money match if he gets to face Cena, Mysterio, or Bryan.
