CM Punk makes a surprise return to the WWE after 9 year during Survivor Series.

CM Punk returned to WWE with a bang, entering the ring at the conclusion of Survivor Series after almost a decade away. The hometown star returned to the Allstate Arena, and as the men’s War-Games match came to an end, “Cult of Personality” blasted through the speakers, driving the crowd insane.


Phillip Jack Brooks, widely recognized by his ring name CM Punk, is an accomplished American professional wrestler. Presently affiliated with WWE, he has a longstanding history with the organization, having contributed from 2005 to 2014. Additionally, he brought his talents to All Elite Wrestling from 2021 to 2023, showcasing his passion for the sport across various platforms.

As Punk performed his trademark “It’s clobbering time” in front of the WWE crowd for the first time since January 2014, some of the audience members joined him in celebrating his comeback.

In September, Punk was let go with cause from AEW after being involved in a backstage brawl after the release of “All In” in London. Punk had signed with the promotion in 2021.

At Saturday night’s American Survivor Series event, fans let out a loud cheer upon hearing his theme music.

WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque stated at the press conference following the event that the decision to bring Punk back was a last-minute addition to the show and that “it didn’t come to fruition until everyone thought it wasn’t going to happen.”

During his time with the company, Punk and WWE had a falling out that finally caused him to leave. It was “a long time coming,” according to Levesque, to bring Punk back because they had both matured since then.

“People share their diverse perspectives on him—some expressing admiration, others disapproval, encompassing both positive and negative sentiments,” remarked Levesque in a spirit of understanding and empathy.

On social media, the majority expressed shock; one person wrote that it was the “biggest pop in wrestling history.”

CM Punk, real name Phil Brooks, briefly competed in mixed martial arts with the UFC after quitting the WWE in 2014.

After that, in 2021, he became an employee of AEW, but he left the company earlier this year following the All Out pay-per-view event at Wembley Stadium.

Fans went into a frenzy when CM Punk made his unexpected WWE comeback; he didn’t even get into the ring or have a wrestling match.

All Elite Wrestling (AEW), the top rival of the WWE, fired Punk in August for an undisclosed reason following a physical altercation with wrestler Jack Perry backstage. Punk had spent two years in AEW, a time marked by numerous injuries and dramatic events behind the scenes, including multiple physical altercations. Despite all of that, Punk was the promotion’s biggest money-making draw and a two-time AEW world champion.

Though Punk’s creative plans are unknown, his return to WWE will be the talk of the wrestling world for some time to come. One of the biggest stars the industry has seen in the last 20 years is punk.
