Having taken a look at some of the most notable fan responses, we do need to wonder if Punk is having some fun at our expense.
Having said that, there is always a possibility of him returning to the ring.
What If It Does Happen?
Let us assume for a second that he does return at the Royal Rumble? Can you imagine the repercussions of that appearance?
Let’s face it, Punk cannot get away with a single appearance, because fans will want more.
If Punk makes an appearance at the Rumble, he is most likely going to remain on the roster until WrestleMania or even Summerslam. Question is, who would he feud with? There are many people to pick from on the main roster, and I’m sure that fans have some preferences of their own.
One of the names that has been thrown around by many people is Seth Rollins. This would not be a bad idea at all, especially since he recently turned heel and aligned himself with the Authors of Pain. They make a dominant and threatening opponent, perfect for a feud leading up to WrestleMania.
Another possibility is AJ Styles. However, it is important to note that he and CM Punk met in the indies. In fact, they met a whopping four times, with three of the matches taking place under ROH. Also, if Punk has any ring rust, Styles has the experience to counter it.
Of course, we would not be doing our job right if we did not mention The Fiend for a potential feud. His gimmick is really out of this world and taking on CM Punk would certainly provide an interesting contrast for the WWE Universe.
Do they follow the weirdness and psychotic mind of The Fiend? Or do they square behind a returning legend?
The Build-Up To The Royal Rumble
If Punk is to appear, the WWE will keep this a heavily guarded secret.
Still, the build-up to the Royal Rumble should prove interesting. Veterans are going to appear, it is just a matter of who.
And, with Lesnar being the first entry, who knows what crazy things will happen?
