CM Punk has explained how he believes a potential WWE return would play out, giving his opinion on the WWE ‘formula’.
In an interview with NYC radio host Josh Martinez, Punk noted that he has a specific story he has been telling since his first AEW appearance in August.
Discussing the typical tropes of a high-profile WWE return, Punk said:
“I literally want to wrestle everybody, but I’m telling a specific story here of coming back, kind of restarting, rekindling my love for pro wrestling. If I went back to WWE, what would I do? There’s a formula. There’s a track record and a formula. This is what they do. Batista comes back, he wins the Royal Rumble, he main events WrestleMania. Edge comes back. He’s in the Royal Rumble. I think he was in it twice.
“He might have won, I don’t know. He goes on the main event WrestleMania. There’s a formula and I was bored of that s**t 10 years ago, so I’m bored of it now. I understand people saying that they don’t like certain things and all that, then it’s not for you. I get it. Like I said, I’m there for the fans in the building. I’m telling the stories that I want to tell, and I’m having fun doing it. You’ll know when it’s not fun for me because I won’t do it.”
