Booker T isn't betting on a CM Punk return to WWE.
With rumors of CM Punk's contract being bought out by All Elite Wrestling, the buzz surrounding a potential WWE return of "The Best in the World" has picked up.
On the latest episode of his Hall Of Fame podcast, two-time WWE Hall of Fame legend Booker T sounded off with his thoughts on the possibility of CM Punk returning to WWE.
“There’s always a chance, you know, but, I don’t think it’s a big chance or anything like that, that we see CM Punk back in WWE," Booker stated when touching on the subject during the show. "I don’t think CM Punk wants to go back to WWE. I mean, CM Punk has made it perfectly clear ever since he showed up in AEW what he feels and what he thinks about WWE and everything in it."
Booker T continued, "I don’t think that feeling is going to change or anything like that. We see the turmoil in AEW right now and all of it surrounds CM Punk, every bit of it. People can say, Hangman Page started it, this, that, whatnot, and the other, but you know, that’s like little kids, you know what I mean? Well, he hit me. Well, you hit me first. One of those types of things. I think we’re past that. So, from a business standpoint, no, I don’t see CM Punk back in WWE. That’s just my opinion. I could be wrong, but I don’t see that.”
