Triple H is one of the most important persons in WWE right now, and he recently spoke about talking to CM Punk. He recently appeared on Barstool Sports’ “Pardon My Take” podcast. He was there to promote WrestleMania 37 which will take place soon.
Triple H revealed that he spoke to CM Punk more than a year ago and also spoke about whether he will ever return or not. CM Punk was signed by FOX to appear on WWE’s Backstage show. He was a part-time analyst. Triple H stated that he spoke to him around the time he was signed in 2019.
Triple H on Talking to CM Punk Over a Year Ago
“Last time I talked to [Punk]? A year and a half… a year and three quarters ago?,” Triple H answered. “A funny thing that people constantly will say, when his return is or… but in some way, I don’t know whether he does or not, but that has to be what he wants.
When people talk about, they go, ‘Make the call!’. What says if we make the call he wants to answer? What says if we make the call he doesn’t go, like, ‘Yeah, I’m not interested in doing that anymore.’ Maybe he’s just done with it.
“I think that those are conversations that only those people can directly answer. I think if he wants to do it, either we would get word and we would have those conversations or he would make a call, or you know, anything like that, but there has to be a desire there to do something like that.
This business is too all in to just go like, ‘Ehhh, alright, I’ll do it.' ” Triple H then spoke about whether he will ever take a call from CM Punk. Triple H revealed that he will always take a call from anyone for the sake of business.
Triple H also stated that CM Punk could return to WWE during his Backstage days, but the entire show was nixed when the pandemic started. “CM Punk worked with us on the FOX show, what, a year ago? There was opportunities there,” Triple H said.
“There were people around each other at all times. You know, again, I’ll never say never but the desire needs to be there on all sides to make that happen”.
