Ever since CM Punk was fired from AEW, WWE has made several references regarding him on their programming.

Old promo lines of Punk have been used on WWE TV, as well as Shinsuke Nakamura performing the GTS.

On last night’s SmackDown, Corey Graves said the following during Kevin Owens’ segment:

“Kevin Owens became a monster to fight the monsters of the world.”

This line is from an old CM Punk promo, where Punk said:

“17th of July I will become a monster to fight the monsters of the world.”

This is interesting, as Fightful Select reported yesterday that WWE’s Chief Content Officer Triple H has said internally that fans are finding things that aren’t there in regards to Punk’s potential return, and that all Punk references stopped after the Fastlane PLE, which is clearly not the case.

“I asked the same thing when I spoke to a higher up. My exact quote was ‘unrealistic expectations are set because of the references on WWE TV, whether there’s plausible deniability or not’.

I was told that those talent (making CM Punk references) are not clearing those lines. It is worth noting that the references on commentary completely stopped after WWE Fastlane. Nakamura did occasionally use the GTS.

Triple H had told some in the company that fans were finding things that weren’t there.”

Before last night’s SmackDown in Chicago started, some fans started CM Punk chants, which received boos. You can watch it below:
