It has been many years since CM Punk has competed in a WWE ring. Once one of their biggest stars, they split on bad terms in 2014. To date, CM Punk’s last official wrestling match was the 2014 Royal Rumble, as he left the company the following night. Punk has kept himself busy ever since, doing some comic book work for Marvel, making his MMA debut, and getting a job doing commentary for UFC.
He even made a WWE return as part of WWE Backstage with Renee Young, Booker T and more. However, he’s yet to return to the ring. A recent tweet from Punk indicates something could be in the works, as he’s quarantining for an upcoming job. Could we see Punk return to WWE at the 2021 Royal Rumble?
CM Punk Is Currently In Quarantine
The tweet itself didn’t give up too much information, just confirming to a fan that he does not have COVID-19 after starting to quarantine a few days back. “I do not have Covid. I’m quarantining as a mandatory safety guideline for a job.” This is enough to launch some speculation, especially with the Royal Rumble coming up very soon.
It would be an ideal spot for someone like Punk to make his return, though if WWE was able to set that deal up? They would likely want to save it for an event with a major crowd, not a show set in the WWE Thunderdome. Punk has previously shown interest in wrestling again, if the price is right after all.
Likely Getting Ready To Do More MMA Commentary
While a CM Punk Royal Rumble return is something fans would be insanely happy to see, it’s more likely this has to do with his duties as a commentator for the UFC. The current quarantine process is similar to the one for his UFC work, which he recently discussed on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette.
It’s his biggest job money wise right now, and one that he is quite good at, especially compared to his other MMA performances. We will obviously need to wait and see what comes next for CM Punk.
