At this stage a match with Triple H would awful. Trips is 52 and hasn't worked a singles match in over two years.If Punk is ready and he's serious enough for a proper return to the ring then so be it but I'll be completely honest, I'll hate aew that much more if he signs with them even if it was his decision, WWE is still the superior and larger platform if you want a bigger money match situation it's not just culminating a long anticipated feud with HHH but also potential programs with Roman, Seth, AJ, KO and so on it's not that dry over here.
Punk can train and shake the rust off, He's not a gym guy either so he will be fine either way.
People seem to think that because a pro wrestler gets proven to be an average professional fighter that it somehow negatively affects their credibility as a pro wrestler. I don't understand how a legitimate sport has anything to do with a completely staged and predetermined facsimile of a sport.Punk was never a fighter, i don't think its fair to say he lost value cause he couldn't make it in ufc. Brock didn't lose value when he got cut from the minnesota vikings.
Like WWE has survived on scrouging WCW, ECW, ROH and Impact talent, right?It could all be just rumours that have gained legs. If it is true then I hope he goes with WWE.
AEW just seem to be scrounging ex WWE talent, despite them wanting to be the alternative.
I agree. But for me Punk returning is not exciting... until he actually returns. At that point, I would be on board and marking 110%. I think most wrestling fans would be too.He missed his chance to return at the peak. He should have come back for All Out in 2019 which would've been the absolute biggest moment he could've been involved in. Now if it happened, it'd be big, but nowhere near as exciting as it could have been, and a ton of people are over it at this point.
It did because Brock did talk to the WWE after that about returning but Vince wanted him on a reduce pay because of the NFL failure. Hence why he went to NJPW and than the UFC both help him gain his value and then some(mostly UFC).Punk was never a fighter, i don't think its fair to say he lost value cause he couldn't make it in ufc. Brock didn't lose value when he got cut from the minnesota vikings.
I don't know if Bryan will sign with AEW at all, I think he doesn't resign with WWE than he is likely going to work on his own likely more indy shows such as ROH, NWA and such while making the odd appearance in NJPW. I think the only full employer Bryan will sign with will be the WWE.Could WWE have blown their load in getting Cena and Goldberg scheduled early in anticipation of the Bryan/Punk/AEW double swipe?
If it does indeed happen, having a second major promotion is what's best for business. Great summer for wrestling fans!
I agree, there's no problem with it. I guess what I was trying to say is that he's never been a guy I cared much about but I recognized that he has very loyal fans who will be over the moon if he does indeed return to wrestling.I'd say just let him do what he feels necessary to get back in the ring even if it's part time.
