Re: Meltzer Believes WWE want CM Punk to return
Punk has heat with Triple H and his ego though, so there's that hindering it. Plus, a lot of Punk's "cool factor" comes from his perception as a guy who stands up for himself and calls out the shit. If he signed on the dotted line and dropped all grievances, then I'm sure a lot of people would feel betrayed by the CM Punk brand, and that's ultimately what Punk is trying to sell. Unless Punk returns as a heel. In which case, I'd be for it, even though I don't really miss Punk and don't feel that it would really move the needle. It would certainly be "hot," don't get me wrong, but what does Punk's name really mean outside the business? He's created a stir before though, so maybe Punk returning as a renegade railing against the goody-goody WWE would get attention. I don't know -- I'm not completely sold on the idea, because Punk doesn't come cheap.
Roman Reigns vs. CM Punk for the Universal Title in the main event of WrestleMania sounds good at this point in time, however. And let's be honest -- Punk is not doing this for anything less than a main event.
