WWE accused of lack of subtlety with ongoing CM Punk references amid WWE HOFer’s disapproval of former AEW star’s return to the company

Recent episodes of WWE’s Raw at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville were action-packed, thanks to CM Punk’s reference to the venue. The Visionary’s entrance and promo before his battle with JD McDonagh were the show’s highlights. He humorously used the phrase “Cry me a river” twice in the promo as a playful reference to CM Punk.

Controversial wrestler CM Punk has been a subject of speculation since his departure from AEW. Fans are pondering whether CM Punk might make a return to WWE, especially after the company made further allusions to him on this week’s RAW.

Seth Rollins’ CM Punk reference convinces fans of return

The speculation surrounding CM Punk’s possible return to WWE, where he had enjoyed great success, began shortly after he left that company. References to Punk have been fueled by the comments of other WWE Superstars.

The latest edition of RAW featured more hints at CM Punk’s potential comeback. Seth Rollins once again alluded to CM Punk in his promo by using the phrase “Cry me a river” twice. He also challenged Drew McIntyre and reflected on the era affected by COVID. However, JD McDonagh interrupted Seth Rollins’ speech to launch an assault.

Seth Rollins will defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Drew McIntyre at Crown Jewel 2023. Even after WWE turned down his original contract offer, CM Punk’s return continues to hint. Punk might return to WWE at some point in the future, but until then, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Eric Bischof claims WWE has no room for Punk

Fans are wondering who Shinsuke Nakamura will face at Survivor Series, and CM Punk is a possible opponent. Survivor Series is scheduled to be held in Chicago on November 25, which is Punk’s hometown. While Punk’s star power in the ring is undeniable, WWE must consider his history and his time in AEW.

On his podcast, former WCW president Eric Bischoff discussed the potential for CM Punk’s return, pointing out that WWE has successfully brought back stars who had previous disagreements with the company.

Bischoff said, “There’s just no holes in their game right now, [but] it’s not going to be that way forever. Everything ebbs and flows. Maybe somewhere down the road, I see [bringing Punk in], but I certainly don’t see it coming up anytime soon.”

Punk was also pressed on the subject of his rumored WWE comeback. When asked whether he will be attending Survivor Series despite the reports, CM Punk joked about the event selling out.
