CM Punk in ‘shock wrestling return’ as WWE legend appears to storm event

WWE legend CM Punk may have made his first steps into returning to the ring with a shock cameo at a small independent show.

After a five-year absence from the squared circle, one of the most popular and polarising wrestlers of all time could be back in action.

Punk looks to have resurfaced with a pro wrestling comeback as rumours of a potential deal with Cody Rhodes’ All Elite Wrestling promotion have emerged.

Wisconsin based promotion MKE Wrestling – which is operated by Ring of Honor talent Silas Young – hosted a show at the Knights of Columbus building.

And during the main event a masked individual interfered in the match, hitting Daryck St. Holmes with a GTS – Punk’s trademark finisher – to cost him the match before fleeing.

Immediately Twitter was ablaze with rumours that the 40-year-old former WWE Champion, real name Phillip Brooks, was the mystery man behind the mask.

One Instagram user posted a photo of himself with Punk in the area a few days before, in which he was wearing the same hooded top as the man who made the run-in.

MKE Wrestling added fuel to the fire by releasing the footage of the incident online.

“This place has had 25+ years of wrestling and is the place a lot of guys started. Guys like @ColtCabana as well as a Punk who showed up in a mask last night.”

The Chicago native, who held the WWE Championship for 434 days in his most famous run, left Vince McMahon’s company in 2014 to pursue a career in mixed martial arts.

After suffering devastating losses in his two fights with UFC, rumours of a pro wrestling return were always on the cards, despite his comments to the contrary.

After being name dropped by the Young Bucks star and AEW co-founder Nick Jackson in a recent episode of Being the Elite on Youtube, rumours of Punk making his pro wrestling return with the upstart promotion have spread like wildfire.
