    I don’t think Punk is coming back, but I do find it a bit odd that he kept the look (facial hair).

    I am glad to see CM Punk back. He is still the best in the world in my book. He keeps the WWE alive like non other. He is far above Randy Orton in the art of wrestling his motivation and his politeness. The management should quit bullying good wrestlers. Are you listening Triple H and Stef?

    Why can’t he just fight in the WWE #COMEBACKPUNKCOMEBACK!!!!!!!!
