CM Punk remains in the headlines after signing on with Fox and WWE Backstage. His name is constantly mentioned as possibly returning to WWE and fueled by the likes of Seth Rollins teasing a potential match with Punk.
Despite the fan interest, Punk has consistently stated that he is not actively pursuing an in-ring return. Meanwhile, his wife AJ Lee has said she is "very retired" when asked about potentially returning to WWE. But that hasn't stopped Executive Vice President of Talent Triple H from answering questions about the possibility of Punk or Lee returning to the ring.
"If it was right for them, for the company, for everyone involved, then absolutely. I don’t think that’s ever been a factor, of somebody saying 'this person should be here, or that person should be here,'" Triple H told Metro UK. "Incredible talent are always incredible talent – but there’s so much more to the business than just being a talented performer… I can fantasy book and say I’d like to be young again but that ain’t happening too! In a perfect world? Yeah, sure. Again, you’ve heard Vince [McMahon] echo that sentiment so many times of the years, never say never!"
Triple H said in November that he had not talked to Punk after he joined WWE Backstage. Punk is set to return to WWE Backstage on Jan. 21. But in the meantime, he went after The Miz with a vulgar now-deleted tweet. You can check out what he said to Miz by clicking here.
