CM Punk: If I Go Back To WWE, I'm Just Another Guy Doing Not-Good Television

CM Punk has made his stance on a return to wrestling clear; if the right situation presents itself, he'd be willing to listen.

WWE doesn't seem like the right situation for him as he would prefer to do quality projects rather than be just another guy.

“I don’t know,” Punk told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated when asked about a potential return to wrestling. “I’ve said no before in interviews. I’m not fishing for a deal. I get offered to do a lot of stuff, and I say no to 90% of it just because my thing is I need to work with quality human beings. It just seems like maybe in pro wrestling there is a lack of quality human beings. I don’t know. I like doing fun, quality projects. If there is a fun, quality wrestling project that gets sent my way, I will listen to it."

Punk continued by saying, “I don’t need the money. And the way the wrestling business is now, it’s wacky. You’ve got WWE, who has multiple billion-dollar television deals, and the television’s awful. I go back there, I’m just another guy. And it’s not even that—I’d be just another guy that’s doing not-good television. I want to do stuff that’s good. I want my name attached to quality projects, where it’s fun and it makes people laugh, smile, think and people don’t hate watching it. I want to do fun stuff.”

In another recent interview, Punk commented about potentially facing Will Ospreay, saying he didn't want to give people false hope, but a match with Ospreay does interest him. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
