Jericho speaks out about CM Punk's return to WWE TV Submitted by Aaron Rift on 11/26/2019 at 11:52 AM
In an interview with UpRoxx.com, Chris Jericho commented on CM Punk returning to WWE television:
"It's a long time coming," Jericho said. "We knew there would be a Mötley Crüe reunion and we knew CM Punk would come back to wrestling. It was just a matter of time. I think he came back with more of a sigh than a scream. It seems kinda funny that he came back on a show that drew 150,000 viewers where it could have been 5 million viewers. But if it's part of the process to slowly wean him into the wrestling business, then good."
"The WWE sure needs him. You need stars in the business. Good for him for coming back. I just think it was not as big as it could have been or should have been. He's back for the first time in five years and no one really cares. But I'm sure it will lead to more. I don't see how it can't."
"I'm not disappointed," Jericho said in regards to Punk not signing with AEW. "I know there were some conversations, but Punk's his own guy. Could we have used him? Yes. Does it hurt us to not have him? No, not at all."
