CM Punk walked away from professional wrestling five years ago, and he’s said many times that he has no interest in returning.
However, that hasn’t stopped fans from asking him about joining AEW, but fans might not want to get their hopes up on that front.
The Young Bucks recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet about CM Punk possibly joining All Elite Wrestling, and they noted that even though they’re in touch with him they don’t think a return is in the cards.
Nick: “We’ll be honest. Of course, we would love him to come to our company. At this time, I just don’t think he wants to.”
Matt: “When he wants to come back to wrestling, it’ll be his decision.”
Nick: “Matt talks to him all the time about it but the timing is not right, I guess.”
Matt: “Professional wrestling is the most demanding thing in the world. You can’t just find yourself back in it one day and be like ‘okay, I guess I’m doing this again.’ You really have to want to do it and that’s up to him.”
You can never say never in the world of professional wrestling, but at this point in time it seems that CM Punk has made up his mind.
