As the WWE gears up for its 37th annual Survivor Series event in Chicago, Illinois, next week, the rumor mill is abuzz with speculation about a possible major return at this hallmark event. The center of this speculation is none other than former WWE Champion CM Punk, known as the "Second City Saint," whose potential involvement in the November 25 premium live event has become a trending topic among wrestling enthusiasts.
Despite previous reports dispelling any ongoing discussions between Punk and WWE, his recent social media activities have only fanned the flames of these rumors. In a notable Instagram story, Punk shared details from his Tuesday workout, humorously noting the 666 calories burned.
The caption, a simple "Just working out!" might have gone unnoticed, except for an intriguing detail. Punk chose to attach "War Pigs" by Faith No More to his story, a cover of Black Sabbath's song, which incidentally is the official theme for the 2023 Survivor Series.
This subtle yet suggestive choice has left fans wondering whether this is a hint of his return or merely a playful tease.
WarGames Team Mystery
Adding to the intrigue, the latest episode of "WWE RAW" hinted at an impending void in Cody Rhodes' team for the upcoming WarGames match.
This has further fueled speculation that Punk could be the surprise element in the match. However, this theory competes with recent buzz suggesting Randy Orton as the more likely candidate to fill the last spot in the men's WarGames match.
The Survivor Series, synonymous with unexpected twists and legendary returns, provides the perfect stage for such a dramatic comeback. Punk, a Chicago native, would undoubtedly receive a hero's welcome in his hometown, making the event all the more memorable.
As anticipation builds, WWE fans are left to ponder: Will CM Punk make a triumphant return at Survivor Series, or are these teasers leading to an anticlimactic conclusion? The answer lies in wait as the WWE universe converges on Chicago for what promises to be an unforgettable night in professional wrestling history.
