• Booker T Addresses Rumors Of CM Punk Returning To WWE, Says Punk Secluded Himself After Leaving WWE
During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T talked about recent rumors of CM Punk returning to WWE for “WWE Backstage” talk show on FOX FS1 & more.
Below are the highlights:
On recent rumors of CM Punk possibly returning to WWE:
“Going back to WWE, my thing is it must have been the best kept secret FOX ever pulled off. It must have been one of those deals (on Punk doing a test with Renee Young for WWE Backstage show on FS1). Now, you know what? The one I read said that he was brought in to do test shots with Renee Young. No Booker T. I know nothing about this at all.
Look man. Me and Punk, you know, we had no beef or anything like that when he was in WWE. I remember when I brought CM Punk down to Reality of Wrestling when he was a young, young kid. And now, he’s a big star now, you know, CM Punk. And for the last five years now, he’s been on a hiatus. You know, he had the MMA run with the UFC.
I know he’s doing some commentary now with MMA. And you know, for him to step back into the world of wrestling, it’s something that I never thought I’d see because when CM Punk, he seemed like that guy that when stepped away from it, he said, ‘I’m done with professional wrestling, and I never want to see a professional wrestling ring ever again.”
On Punk deleting his WWE contacts:
“He actually pretty much went in in seclusion. He pretty much deleted all of his contacts from all of his buddies in the business or anything like that. I remember some of the guys — I remember one of the guys, I mean actually one guy, Corey Graves, was real cool with CM Punk, and Corey was real hot at him because he deleted him [Graves].
And he said, ‘I don’t want to talk to this guy anymore.’ I don’t know what it was. [Laughs] I think it was the tattoos! I think it was the tattoos.”
