The latest on CM Punk: Will he return to WWE?

cmpunkCM Punk’s WWE contract expires July 17. The question from wrestling fans regarding “The Best in the World” – will he return, or is he done?

The short answer: no one knows.

Punk, who left WWE in January after the Royal Rumble, is scheduled to host a music awards show on AXS TV on July 21, fueling speculation that he is not returning to WWE. The rationale: Punk (real name: Phil Brooks) is scheduled to appear using the CM Punk name, which some feel that WWE wouldn’t allow him to do (either the show, or using the name) if he were still under contract.

Interesting thinking there, but not much more than re-reading the same tea leaves that we’ve all been trying to make sense of for the past six months.

Watch to see what WWE has to say on or around July 17. Of course, even then, if WWE were to announce that it had parted ways with Punk, there would still be speculation that it was all part of the work.

So …
