During an interview with Rob Butler of BBC Norfolk, WWE Smackdown general manager Nick Aldis commented on CM Punk potentially returning to WWE…
“He’s built & cultivated a huge fanbase, he sells a ton of merchandise, he moves numbers, he sells tickets, he puts butts in seats… call me old fashioned but that trumps everything else.
There is a way for him to compete in WWE & I think that if it can be done & I think there is a way it can be really good business for everybody & I will wait with bated breath like everyone else to see if it happens, but if it does I’ll be excited to be involved with it.” (quote courtesy of @WrestleOps)
Aldis addressed the interview clip with the following message via Twitter/X…
”I’m disappointed that this answer is edited out of context, considering it’s the BBC. For the record, I have no dog in the fight, and that situation is above my paygrade. Be better journalists.”
“There is a way for him to compete in the WWE”
