CM Punk hasn’t shut the door on a return to WWE, but the former leader of “The Straight Edge Society” isn’t exactly clamoring for a main event match these days.The 41-year-old appeared on FS1’s “WWE Backstage” show Tuesday night and (sort of) answered the question his fans have been asking since he left wrestling in 2014. Will we ever see CM Punk back in the ring? Following his unceremonious exit in 2014, Punk explained he had been dealing with a number of health issues and no longer felt the same passion for wrestling. He also had bumpy relationships with WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon and executive vice president of talent, live events and creative Triple H — and that’s putting it lightly. So yes, there are plenty of “hurdles” standing in the way.You can watch Young’s full interview with Punk below.

I haven’t talked to anybody in WWE. It’s nothing that I’m actively pursuing or interested in. But I’m 41 years old, and I’ve lived and experienced life where I know to not say no, but that’s gonna be a bridge that is gonna have to be built, and it might take as long as building The Great Wall of China because there’s some hurdles. There’s some hurdles there.””It’s not something I’m actively pursuing.” – @CMPunk on a possible return to in-ring action. #WWEBackstage pic.twitter.com/sg398s7uSI— WWE on FOX (@WWEonFOX) November 20, 2019Punk surprisingly showed up at the end of last week’s episode of “WWE Backstage,” and Fox revealed he would be appearing “periodically” as a contributor on the talk show. As he noted during his inteview with Renee Young, he is not directly tied to WWE, so he doesn’t have a problem criticizing the company.”I think the product is the same (as) when I left it,” Punk said. “I think wrestling could be so much better. It could be so much more. … Stuff is overproduced. Stuff is micromanaged.”Considering Punk’s history with WWE, a sudden return beyond an analyst role seems highly unlikely.
