WILL CM PUNK WRESTLE IN 2020, WHY WWE ISN'T PROMOTING HIM ON WWE BACKSTAGE AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2020-02-15 10:00:00

Why do you think WWE stopped promoting CM Punk on WWE Backstage?

My guess - and this is just a guess - is that when Punk railed against The Miz and mentioned WWE's relationship with Saudi Arabia in a negative way on Twitter in response to Miz mocking him, the decision was made to ignore Punk's appearances as he is under contract to FOX, not WWE.

Has there been any communication with Punk about returning to the ring for WWE?

Not to the best of my knowledge.

Do you think Punk will wrestle in 2020?

He's 41 now.  I feel like if there was a time and place for him to return to the ring, it's going to need to be soon.

If he never wrestles again, does that make him the modern  day Randy Savage in that he left and never returned?

I think it would be a fair analogy, although I would hope that if Punk's fans want to see him back on the WWE stage, they get what they want, something that Savage's fans unfortunately will never get.

Does Punk one day go in the WWE Hall of Fame?

I will never say never when we live in a world where Bruno Sammartino and The Ultimate Warrior came back to be inducted.
