Punk then went on to say, “They’re asking if I’m going to be there? I think it’s sold out. I think tickets are hard to get”. Thus, it seems the fan-favorite Superstar opted for a safer and more witty response. Since he didn’t say a direct ‘no’, his return to the Survivor Series cannot be ruled out.
The WWE Survivor Series is almost knocking at the door and is set to take place on November 25, 2023. With that, it remains to be seen if CM Punk will indeed make his return to WWE at the event. However, fans will surely look forward to the event, and they will also wait for any updates regarding their favorite superstar prior to the Premium Live Event.
