Update: CM Punk ‘Expected’ Back At RAW

Source: The Wrestling Observer

UPDATE: After the earlier news report claiming that CM Punk will be back on RAW in Chicago, IL tomorrow night, the following item surfaced on CM Punk’s Twitter account. After Punk walked out on the WWE after the Royal Rumble PPV, the official WWE Twitter account stopped following Punk’s own account. However, the new WWE Network account, which was created after Punk’s walkout, is now following Punk on Twitter.

The basic gist of things is that WWE gave Punk some time to “cool off” and then wound up talking to him. Punk vented his frustrations to Vince McMahon and something was agreed upon that made Punk happy enough to be willing to come back. It’s possible he’ll be in the WrestleMania 30 main event as that was one of the things that he wanted. Again, the entire thing is not a work. It’s simply a case of where a guy was frustrated, walked out on the company and eventually the two sides wound up talking and worked things out. Could they turn it into a “work” now that things have cooled off? Of course …. but that likely all depends on if CM Punk agrees to it. They are doing everything possible to keep Punk happy during his return to the company. The guy sells a ton of merchandise and is one of their top stars that they want at WrestleMania 30. We’ll have a major update on this later tonight and again tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for that.

ORIGINAL: CM Punk is reportedly “expected” to return this Monday on RAW in his hometown of Chicago. A source who is said to be “top WWE star” claims that Punk’s return is “100% certain.”

The report notes that if he does return, Punk will likely slot back into his match with Triple H at WrestleMania XXX, or possibly being added to WWE World Title Match. That match was reportedly changed recently in creative plans to a triple threat, with the third opponent not yet named internally.

The report is NOT confirmed just yet.

More shortly.

    would’ve been better if they could’ve kept it a surprise! Wrestling in general would be better if surprises could actually remain surprise but websites like this always ruin them. And I’m not bashing this website infact I enjoy this website and think it’s informative I just wish it didn’t spoil surprise returns and debuts

    • Philip Vanderheyden IV

      Agreed!

          They kept Eric Bischoff hidden in a trailer all day in 2002 before they announced him as the new GM. The internet had no idea.

          They did it then they can do it now.

    Its gonna a fatel 4-way at mainia orton vs bootista vs danielson vs punk wirh punk winning

      Id prefer Ziggler in the main event tbh, he certainly got a rub by calling out Batista last week. Id rather see Orton or Batista hold the title a few more months, really screw the fans over until finally Danielson gets his shot, picking up wins against the odds and then he gets the title at Summerslam. At this point it just feels like a quick fix throwing him into the main event at Mania (much as Id like him to have been in it from day 1)

    I think WWE learnt their lesson when Austin walked out of the company in 2002 which if anyone on here remembers was not handled well by them. With CM Punk walking out for similar reasons WWE is being careful which is why he was not addressed on TV.
