In an electrifying turn of events that has the wrestling world buzzing, CM Punk made a sensational return to WWE at the Survivor Series event in Chicago, ending nearly a decade of absence. Sources including Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Radio revealed that Punk's comeback, a closely guarded secret, was finalized merely 10 days prior to the event.

The 45-year-old wrestler's surprise appearance marks a pivotal moment in WWE history. Meltzer disclosed that Punk has inked a multi-year deal with the organization, signaling his long-term commitment to the WWE universe. This development, orchestrated primarily by Nick Khan and Paul Levesque, notably excluded Vince McMahon from the decision-making process.

Intriguingly, top executives at TKO were reportedly in the dark about Punk's return. Meltzer expressed his astonishment at this, noting, "I was told basically that it's not their gig. They're there to do business deals and make money, and the creative is in the hands of WWE." This strategy underscores a shift in WWE's approach to fan engagement, moving away from the combative stance often associated with Vince McMahon's era.

The aftermath of Survivor Series was equally dramatic. Seth Rollins' on-air confrontation with Punk was revealed to be a storyline angle, playing off Rollins' previous remarks about Punk. Meanwhile, Drew McIntyre's visibly upset departure post-event sparked speculation.

While details are unclear, Meltzer mentioned, "Within the company, people thought it had to do with Punk... but he was legitimately upset about something." As McIntyre's WWE contract nears its conclusion around WrestleMania 40, with no renewal yet in sight, his future in wrestling remains a topic of keen interest.

Adding to the excitement, reports from PWInsider and Fightful confirm that CM Punk is scheduled to appear on Monday Night Raw in Nashville, further fueling anticipation among fans. As this story continues to unfold, the wrestling community eagerly awaits the next chapter in CM Punk's remarkable return, underscoring the ever-evolving and unpredictable nature of professional wrestling.
