Former referee addresses speculation that CM Punk might return to WWE
As previously noted, there could be a buyout of CM Punk’s AEW contract following his backstage altercation with The Elite.
In a video published to his Twitter account, former WWE referee Jimmy Korderas commented on the speculation that CM Punk might return to WWE under the Triple H regime…
“I don’t know if you guys read the Internet and stuff like that, but there’s a big rumor that with all the stuff going on with CM Punk and AEW and he’s trying to find a way out of his contract, WWE would be open to taking him back. I don’t know if that’s a good idea because WWE right now, under the guidance of Triple H, aka Paul Levesque, is doing well. They’re hitting the right notes right now. They’re elevating their product. They’re in a groove. Do you need someone who has the reputation of Punk backstage to disrupt what seems to be a good locker room environment right now? I think right now…yes, it would be controversial. It would draw some attention, but at the same time, do you want to take a chance of stirring the pot a little too much?” (quote courtesy of 411Mania.com)
In today's #ReffinRant rumours! They say "never say never" in the wrestling business but a certain rumour making the rounds is making me question that & go 🤔 😉 #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/D53IMq6XZh
