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 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.

Ahead of tonight’s Survivor Series 2023 PLE in Chicago, former WWE Superstar Ryback has put his entire career on the line if Punk ends up showing up.

Below is what The Big Guy tweeted:

“If CM Punk returns tonight, I will officially retire from pro wrestling.”

According to Fightful Select, WWE Officials have outright told top talent that Punk isn’t returning to the company at Survivor Series:

“Top talent were outright told that CM Punk wasn’t coming in for Survivor Series when they asked.

This includes talent that are at the level and in situations where it wouldn’t make sense to lie to them and wouldn’t be beneficial to a great locker room.”
