WWE enthusiasts are expressing strong opinions about CM Punk's potential performance in a promotional battle against a well-known SmackDown star. CM Punk, who made a notable return to professional wrestling during the second episode of AEW Rampage in 2021, has been a subject of considerable discussion among fans and industry experts.
Punk's tenure with AEW was marked by several injuries and backstage altercations, leading to the termination of his contract by AEW President Tony Khan on September 2, following an incident with Jack Perry at AEW All In 2023. Despite these challenges, Punk's return to WWE has reignited interest and speculation among the WWE Universe.
In a recent episode of the wrestling podcast “Two HEADS, One TABLE,” fans were asked to predict the outcome of a promotional battle between LA Knight and CM Punk. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of Punk, with many fans excited about the prospect of witnessing this encounter on WWE television.
Vince Russo, a former WWE writer, commented on Punk's absence from the last episode of RAW, suggesting that WWE should have ensured Punk's presence. “If they signed Punk last minute, I'm assuming maybe he had another commitment for tonight… in the past, you just paid off that third party. That's what you did,” Russo stated on Sportskeeda Wrestling's Legion of RAW show.
