Will he, won’t he? CM Punk making a WWE return is still being talked about.
During a radio appearance in America, Punk was about rumours of him taking part in a screen test for FOX’s studio show WWE Backstage.
Punk never gave a firm response, but told the The Kevin & Bean Show: “If nothing happens please don’t be mad at me!”
In the same interview, he addressed The Rock, who will return to SmackDown on Friday.
Although many fans have speculated Punk disliked Rock after their matches together and having to put the Great One over, Punk dismissed that and encouraged the Hollywood superstar to call him out on Friday.
“I enjoy The Rock, I do,” Punk said. “And I’m not trying to put this out… gee, hopefully people don’t do this, but do you remember the last time The Rock was in the Staples Center?”
He continued: “Let’s do it again. When is this show, next Friday? Dwayne, call me Friday,” Punk joked.
One of the hosts imagined how big it would be if they did a phone call segment like that on SmackDown, but had the camera cut backstage to Punk on his phone, live in the Staples Center for his WWE return.
Punk responded to that fantasy booking and said: “100 per cent better than anything on their shows since I left.”
