The speculations for CM Punk’s comeback become more and more crowded after Punk showed interest in a role in the upcoming WWE talk show Backstage, which will be broadcast on FS1 from November. The show is entirely a talk show but it is possible that Punk also returns to the ring if he returns to WWE. The Observer had previously stated:
“If CM Punk has to return to wrestling, it looks like he will be in WWE. The impression of the WWE is that they believe it wants to return, but right now it’s nothing for sure “.
Even WrestleVotes expressed itself on the matter:
Re: CM Punk… I asked, I got back nothing definitive, as it should be. If and when it happens, it should be super quiet. One source went on to say “probably not now, but eventually” so that’s that.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) October 1, 2019
