Another year, another Royal Rumble, and the yearly rumblings of CM Punk’s possible return to a WWE ring.
They all kind of go hand in hand at this point right? However, could this year be different? WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T certainly believes so. Here’s what the 5x WCW Champion had to say:
“The stars are aligned for something like this to happen. I mean, Punk right now, there’s a whole lot of rumblings right now as far as CM Punk goes. A whole lot of rumblings. Everybody wondering what is Punk going to do. Perfect time for someone like Punk to make a return and what a splash it would be if CM Punk was to be #30 coming into the Rumble.”
“My thing is this, Punk would be the most unexpected entry to enter into the 2021 Royal Rumble than anybody out there. Somebody asked me the question on Monday about who’s the unexpected guy, you know, and I had to think about it for a minute. And that would be the guy – CM Punk. CM Punk’s name is in the news.”
CM Punk right now he’s still a hot commodity. CM Punk fans want to see Punk drop that elbow just one more time. Hopefully he can straighten it out a little bit but definitely if fans had a choice to see one guy back, just one guy, I think Punk’s name would be very high up on that list, very very high. That’s just my opinion.”
There‘s no doubt that fans will be hoping that Booker T is correct. Although it’s been over 7 years since his departure from WWE, Punk’s possible return is always anticipated. Could it finally happen tonight? We’ll have our answer soon enough.
However, it may just be one of those things that remains a “what if” unless the two sides are able to come to an agreement.
