• Triple H’s Stance On Bringing CM Punk To WWE Has Changed
AEW is in the process of buying out CM Punk’s contract, as they don’t want him to return after the All Out PPV fight.
The only delay in the deal being completed is the non-compete clause.
AEW knows that the only other company that could afford Punk is WWE and they think WWE could be interested in bringing back the former WWE Champion, so they don’t want him to return to WWE right away.
Previously, FOX pushed for WWE to bring back Punk, but a deal couldn’t be reached. This led to FOX bringing in Punk for their own talk show, WWE Backstage, on FS1.
According to Wrestlevotes, when Triple H took over the creative department of WWE in July, he told other WWE Officials that he wanted nothing to do with CM Punk.
However, sources have informed Wrestlevotes that Triple H’s stance on bringing Punk back changed recently:
“I did ask over the last couple of days, and it has softened a little bit from what I understand.
I still think there’s animosity. I still think there’s a lot of pieces that need to be picked up between the two of them specifically.
But Hunter, learned from Vince [McMahon] and Vince made amends with everybody.”
