Matt Hardy On CM Punk's WWE Return: It’s An Environment Where I Think Phil Would Be On His Best Behavior

Matt Hardy discusses CM Punk's recent WWE return.

At Survivor Series 2023, as the show was about to go off the air, Cult Of Personality would hit and CM Punk would make his entrance to a shocked Chicago crowd. Since then, he has appeared on both RAW and SmackDown and on Monday's edition of RAW, he will make the decision of what brand he will end up on full time.

Several stars in the industry have commented on Punk's blockbuster return, including several AEW talents. While speaking on The Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy, Matt would discuss CM Punk's return, noting that he feels the WWE environment will be positive for Punk.

"You can’t hate that move by WWE, for sure. It was a shocking move. Obviously, it was gonna get people talking. It’s business, and it’s good for business. I would imagine it’s an environment where I think Phil would be on his best behavior there. If that makes him happy and he’s good with that, then I’m fine with that too. I’m cool with that. It is what it is." he said.

Punk most recently appeared on last night's Tribute To The Troops episode of Friday Night SmackDown, and is currently scheduled to appear on Monday's edition of RAW, as noted above. You can read more here.
