CM Punk was fired by All Elite Wrestling this past Saturday after an investigation into the fight between him and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry backstage at AEW All In was concluded.

Immediately after that, speculation about the former AEW World Champion possibly returning to WWE began.

Fightful Select reported on Monday that Punk wanted to return to WWE at the Royal Rumble earlier this year to set up a match between himself and Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 39.

This was during Punk’s time away from AEW because his future with the company was uncertain at that time and he just wanted to wrestle somewhere.

According to PWInsider, Punk’s release from AEW was an immediate topic of discussion within WWE, especially among top talents.

There were some people who were adamantly against the idea and didn’t believe it could happen, but others looked at it as a “chance to make big money”. One top talent was completely open to the idea of Punk returning to WWE.

Punk reportedly went to RAW in Chicago earlier this year to make amends with WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H and The Miz and also met several other talents backstage.

As of now, Punk has not commented on his release from AEW.
