CM Punk made an appearance on the Swing & Mrs. podcast where he spoke about a wide range of topics.
During the interview, he was asked what it would take for him to potentially get back into the ring.
“I get that question a lot. The answer changes. It’s a very fluid answer. Currently, if the business was right and I had somebody that motivated me across the ring from me, I think, might be able to get it done. Nobody has dangled the correct carrot.”
When asked about potential opponents, he stated that it would be people that he’s worked with before and there would have to be a clean slate. Guys like Daniel Bryan, John Cena, and Rey Mysterio. He noted that these guys are people that he would listen to their ideas.
Regarding people that he’s not wrestled before, a guy like Will Ospreay comes to mind.
“There’s a lot of moving parts. I’m busy doing other stuff and nobody has found the right combination of ways to approach me. It’s not all up to me, ladies and gentlemen. It’s up to the people who actually run the company.”
Punk currently works for Fox Sports on the weekly WWE Backstage show. Before he signed with the network, there were rumblings of him potentially going to AEW and the promotion did make him a big money offer but Punk decided against the move.
The former WWE Champion also talked about his joke about Roman Reigns at WrestleMania and more.
