    I’m skeptical on him coming back tonight but I’m skeptical til proven guilty. So I want to see it to believe it.

  • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

    If Punk decides to show up tonight on RAW it wouldn’t be a big deal to me.

    • Noah

      Same here hun.I’m a CM Punk fan but it wouldn’t be a big deal to me.I also think he’s a f’n d-bag for walking out on WWE.So I don’t care if he shows up.If/When he comes back,Can WWE trust Punk?.I wouldn’t trust him.If he walks out again,If I was Vince I’d fire him.

      • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

        Exactly he can always walk out again and if did walk out for the 2nd time. He will be gone for good.

      • FlawlessRKO

        Did you ever stop and think that it was all a work by Punk and Vince?

        • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

          Yeah I have been saying that this was a work all along.

      • FlawlessRKO

        Firing Punk would be stupid because that’s a waste of money, since he’s under contract and a top 5 merchandise seller. Plus, both he and Vince are really good friends.

        • Louis Salera

          Exactly. Vince is no dummy. Punk is one of few people vince lets call/texts

      • FlawlessRKO

        You call yourself a CM Punk fan, yet you insult for him? BTW, these trust questions are stupid.

        • http://www.Twitter.com/Daniell02242471 Mrs. Ambrose #MNW

          You can’t tell anybody who they can and cannot like. He can answer any questions he wants.

        • Noah

          I am a Punk fan but also he’s a d-bag for walking out.You don’t walk out 30 mins or an hour before the show starts.And you don’t walk out on fans who come to see you.It wouldn’t be stupid to fire him if he walks out again.His contract is up in a few months.There was talk that he wasn’t going to re-sign.If he’s back tonight that’s fine but it’s not a big deal.I hope he’s not back tonight cause I don’t want to hear the Chicago crowd chant his name through out the whole show during every match and every segment.That will be annoying.And I’m sure other people would find that annoying also.Save the return for WM.

  • Jeremy S

    What would be awesome would be him showing up to the sound of boos for walking out.

    • A Realist

      Exactly. I don’t get the big hoopla about him, personally. He’s okay, at best. Certainly not “Best in the World”.

      • Reality

        “he’s okay, at best”. Thanks for the big lol

        • A Realist

          Macho Man Elbow Drop, Running Knee into Bulldog in the corner, Sloppy Weak Looking Kicks, and the GTS. MAYBE the Anaconda Vice. But he so rarely uses that these days.

          4 Moves of Doom.

          Far be it from me to be a Cena defender….but you all give him crap for his 5 Moves of Doom, but what does CM Punk offer that’s any more exciting?

          And people really need to get off his nuts about the God damned 2011 Pipebomb promo. 3 years later.

          • Reality

            I get where you come from but well, you’ll find out it’s been years since I complained about Cena’s “5 moves of doom”. It’s not about the repetitiveness of the moves, as they are your signature moves. Yes, Punk’s matches have been repetitive as of late (except the Lesnar match), partly due because he’s not into them anymore. As I said it’s not about the signature moves, but more about the sequences they’re used in.
            Punk’s good on the mic, and can have great matches. Forget about the boring feud with Heyman/Curtis/Ryback and look back at the last 10 ppv matches he’s had. The guy’s good, real good, no “just okay”. Don’t be a cynical jerk

          • A Realist

            Let me drive home this point one last time:

            Having a different opinion than you…. doesn’t mean I’m a “cynical jerk”. It’s my opinion. I’m entitled to it.

          • Reality

            You’re just not objective. You’re in denial. I call that cynical. The “jerk” part is just my opinion.

          • A Realist

            Wow. You are the textbook definition of an “IWC Mark”, man. I’m not objective…

            That’s the beauty of a personal opinion. I don’t HAVE to be objective about it. Do you know why? BECAUSE IT’S MY OPINION.

            Are you on the rag or something?

          • Reality

            Oh, and now the stupid “IWC Mark” calling. Lel. Great! You stopped being relevent. Good bye

          • A Realist

            And the idiot shows his colors by claiming superiority and running away with his tail tucked between his legs. Typical of assholes like you. Piss off.

          • Reality

            what do you want, can’t argue against someone who can’t give relevent replies and who think that vulgarity strenghen their opinion. You’re pathetic to be honest

          • A Realist

            Look, we’re just going to have to agree to disagree. You can think what you think, I’m going to think what I think. I don’t know why you feel the need to insult and drag me down to your level, but whatever. It is what it is.

    • pwnez

      The Chicago crowd wouldn’t boo him. If they see that he appears in his hometown for his return they will just believe it was a giant work all along.

  • Guest

    I don’t know…it could go either way. On one hand, I feel that he’s done with WWE for good, and on the other hand…it is WWE, so never say never. However, if he does come back, what storyline would he be placed into? Bryan is now in the spot against Triple H that Punk was supposed to be in earlier.

  • http://www.gofundme.com/nzdpa4 Stay Phokus

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

  • NXTNETWORK

    NO!

  • Drmgiver

    Ummmm I see two radio buttons, with no options. #FAIL.

  • Giant_Gengar

    Pretty close vote. Either way if he shows or not, the crowd tonight will tear the house down.

  • hell raising jabroni

    I highly doubt his going to come back

  • Steve Williams

    I hope not. He is no different than that drama queen/ attention seeker at your high school.

  • RynoJordan23

    I would love to see him sitting in the arena having bought a ticket. Whether he’s back and it starts a storyline or he’s simply there to make a statement, it would be awesome. But I doubt it happens.

    • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

      Would be kind of cool… It would be great if WWE cams didn’t focus on him either – because that would sell it more as not being an angle.

  • captaindaddy72

    I’m curious if for only one night, will punk be more popular then Bryan and will cm punk chants override yes chants lol. Should be a fun raw tho, I don’t think punk will be there tho, if he does show up I give wwe props cuz they fooled me lol

  • Guest

    imagine if they had a match now… yes chants vs cm punk chants lol

  • Forceton Banfodder

    Never say never brother!

  • Nightmare

    I hope he comes back as a heel, and they work it into a story line to where he’d be facing daniel bryan at mania. That match needs no belt to be the best on the card.

  • FlawlessRKO

    It’s unbelievable how idiotic some of you IWC fans are towards CM Punk.

    • pwnez

      The same can be said about Batista’s legion of fans.

      • BasedWorld

        Not even close to Punks idiotic fans

  • ThePope

    Here is my answer:

    • Buzzard Follower

      dammit beat me to it

    • http://500px.com/dansingsbuzz Daniel

      it is kinda weird how wwe would come to Chicago right now. Either Vince’s ego got in the way & is trying to prove a point by facing the storm head on OR it’s pretty obvious its a work. Who knows. Either way I won’t be surprised.

      • A Realist

        OR….they already have contractual obligations in place, and too much monetary investments in advertisinng, etc. to cancel. Especially considering he left unexpectedly less than a month and a half ago…

        • http://500px.com/dansingsbuzz Daniel

          That is true. but I think if it were anyone else, they would know better and avoid going to Chicago, but knowing vince’s ego I think he WANTS to go Chicago.

          • A Realist

            I’m excited to see the crowd, either way. I WANT them to tear WWE a deserved new asshole.

  • Louis Salera

    Big time pipe bomb coming tonight. Cant fuc*ing wait.

  • Knoxer

    I wouldn’t be surprised either way today will shut up all critics on if it’s a work or it’s a real deal situation

  • Krokvar

    Imagine if you will. With as much publicity as CM Punk walking out got, the line on by Trips about finding a spot on the card for Bryan, the pop CM Punk will get for being in his home town, the YES Movement. Punk returns cuts a promo maybe a quick match. Then attacks Daniel Bryan in the Main event to the approval of Trips and Steph. This then sets up the match we all want to see Punk vs. Bryan at Mania

  • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

    I don’t think he will be there. If he is, cool – I’m glad they came to terms.

  • Daniel Bryan

    He may be in the back discussing things with Vince but I think the odds of him being back on TV tonight are about 60/40 in favor of him being on the show. The fans have forced WWE’s hands a bit in giving CM Punk whatever it is he wants (other than time away) in the chants. I guarantee you the WWE is worried about the chants they will have to deal with tonight. They have to be because they will take over the show. That Chicago crowd will be relentless.

    If CM Punk DOES come back…the pop will be incredible and that alone is enough reason for me to watch RAW tonight.

    • 2nd Guest

      I’m not really a punk fan but I agree the crowd reaction would be pretty crazy. Those kind of pops are part of why I watch. I will say that he doesn’t just get what he wants. He’s still under contract. Just because he “walked out” doesn’t mean that his contract expired at the same time. All the $$ aside, he still has a deal with the company. I’ll be watching with or without him.

  • Buzzard Follower

    Ill believe it when i see it. i would like to see punk back but i dont miss him that much the bryan roller coaster and shield wyatt matches have most of my attention

  • 5er

    They should blast cult of personality. Have batista come out with his wrists taped like punk, and yell “It’s clobberin time!” That would put some seriously massive heat on Batista. AND the pop for Bryan would be through the roof right afterwards. AND it would be a bit of a diss to Punk by WWE ala His jeff hardy promo.

  • CONSUELA

    regardless, chicago crowd youve proven to be one of the best WWE crowds in history, continue this and hijack the crap out of RAW tonight, show the WWE wat we want!

  • Guest

    I’m not a punk fan. The fact is he’s still under contract. There are obligations that have to be met by both him and WWE.

    IT’S A WORK

    However they put it together is fine by me, if they decide to use him or not.

  • NXTAmbrose

    CM Punk is so not showing up tonight on RAW. Paul Heyman’s “pipebomb” tonight was the nail in the coffin. It was like Vince McMahon talking about Bret Hart when he left WWF, “Bret screwed Bret!” But one thing’s guaranteed tonight on RAW we’ll see “For Only $9.99, Subscribe to the WWE Network!”

  • A Realist

    AJ Styles, Tyler Black, El Generico, Claudio Castagnoli, PAC…..I feel Punk is sloppy in the ring, and not really polished.

    Any other opinion needed to be defended now, or is that good for now?

  • BasedWorld

    He is just ok in the ring people just tend to let his mic skills overshadow his in ring performance, I think Cesaro, D Bry, Aj Styles, Angle, and others that can out wrestle him.

  • C-Snap

    WOW. 10 points for being super clever and knowing all the wrestlers names before they were in WWE. I’ve polished up a medal and sent it in the post.

  • RCW E-FED

    But Generico is not sloppy and is polished? #GTFOH you like indy wrestling.. Thats all don’t act like those guys are the best

  • Rich

    It doesn’t matter that they can out wrestle him. Kurt Angle can run circles around all of them combined in real wrestling. Punk is considered one of the best in the world because overall in the ring, on the mic, with the crowd he does it all. AJStyles is not as good as punk in anything, hes a spot show.. Cesaro is getting there but he’s not close to Punk on the mic. Bryan is the closest since he has done better on the mic. YES being a good Mic worker is essential in WWE, this is not your indy high school gym. Not everyone cares about a perfect wrestling match they want to be entertained. Punk does that.

  • A Realist

    Or..how about this? I’m just used to calling them by those names. Kind of how when I was younger, I had a hard time calling him Mankind, when I knew him as Cactus Jack. We didn’t think of that, though, did we? Naw, we were too busy coming up with a lame ass sarcastic response.

  • A Realist

    ….yeah…….hence why I said his name…

  • A Realist

    ….and CM Punk isn’t indy? And anyone who uses “hashtag” in their argument can’t be taken seriously. I’m sorry.

    Wow. So many hurt feelings over someone having a varying opinion. I’d hate for real world problems to head your people’s way.

  • BasedWorld

    Hold up when was he even considered one of the best in the world again? Being a good talker is a big essential for WWE these days but you still have to put on a good match no matter how good your mic skills are. Not everyone cares that you can talk people still bought tickets to see wrestling matches take place whether it is in a high school gym or in a large arena for entertainment.

  • Rich

    I watch all the time and I am not bias towards Indy wrestlers in anyway. But I notice once someone becomes really popular, like Punk, everyone comes out of the woodwork and says how the guys skills have declined and matches are not good because now the wrestler is popular, and if they’re popular its not a good thing. Punk is still better then almost anyone in the world when it comesto a great match.

  • C-Snap

    Oh please. These guys have been in WWE be it developmental or main roster long enough now and all have FAR more notoriety and coverage now than they did in their previous incarnations on the indies. No-one’s saying “Wow, Claudio had one hell of a match against Cena the other night” Spare me the holier than thou schtick.

  • A Realist

    They’re still the same wrestlers now on a bigger stage. It would be like your friend you’ve known for 10-15 years suddenly deciding to go by a different name. Would you get over that hump easily? No. You wouldn’t.

    Now we’re not even arguing the original point anymore– you want to argue over whether or not *I* call them by their old names or not. You’re being completely asinine. We’re not even talking about the same thing any more, jackass. Quit being all up in arms just because it’s an opinion you don’t agree with. Bunch of assholes in this thread tonight, I swear.

  • C-Snap

    Couldn’t agree more.

  • RCW E-FED

    LMAO yall take this sh*t waaaaay to serious.. To be honest I like all of the mentioned guys, If they are good wrestlers they are good, no matter if they came from ROH TNA PWG or HoodSlam…. trust me i know good wrestling. Just tired of the whiny a** crybabies that the new generation of fans have become. Generico is just as good as Ziggler in my book. I like Rollins’ work more than I like Punk’s but thats not a knock at Punk he’s good in his own make you wanna punch him in the face kinda way
