• WWE Not Interested In Bringing Back CM Punk, Punk Has Distanced Himself From His WWE Friends
According to Tom Colohue, WWE officials are not interested in bringing back CM Punk:
“I have been repeatedly told that there is no interest within the WWE to sign CM Punk and no indication of any interest from CM Punk to sign.
If AEW can convince him, I doubt WWE could do anything to stop them.”
Speaking of Punk, Wrestling Observer is reporting that Punk has distanced himself from his WWE friends:
“Punk has pretty much distanced himself from most of those he was at one point close with in wrestling, and as best as we can tell, anyone he was close with previously from WWE.”
