CM Punk to make a comeback at Survivor Series 2023?
This year’s Survivor Series is scheduled to take place at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, situated northwest of Chicago. As Chicago is also the hometown of CM Punk, it’s obvious that fans would be hoping for him to make a surprise return. However, going by the latest update, WWE is in no mood to sign a deal with him.
As per Fightful’s sources, WWE has stuck to its stance of not inking a deal with CM Punk. No matter how much crowd he attracts, the company is not interested in him.

But who knows, the former champion might just surprise fans with his comeback, as WWE is well known for its shocking returns.
