CM Punk made his shocking return to WWE at Survivor Series 2023 last night in Chicago. After Team Cody Rhodes won the Men’s WarGames match, CM Punk’s music hit as the entire AllState Arena went crazy.
Punk made his way to the WWE ring for the first time in nine years. He did not have any confrontations with the Superstars present in the ring, but Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins lost his cool when Punk returned.
It looks obvious that Rollins vs Punk will happen in WWE soon. Here’s a list of the probable storylines for the Second City Saint after his WWE return.

Roman Reigns has been the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion for more than three years. He has defeated almost the entire WWE roster. With Punk returning to the company, Reigns will have a new opponent now.
3. CM Punk can answer Shinsuke Nakamura’s challenge after WWE return
Shinsuke Nakamura has been talking to a mystery opponent in the last few RAW episodes. Many fans guessed it to be Punk, and it could be WWE’s decision as well so that he gets used to the WWE ring.
4. CM Punk dethrones Gunther
Gunther has been the Intercontinental Champion for more than a year. On the WWE Survivor Series 2023 show, Gunther beat The Miz. It seems like Gunther should lose the title soon, and CM Punk can be the one to dethrone him.

WWE knows how to make money and get the maximum attention possible. With Punk back in the company, they can book him to feud with the US Champion Logan Paul on SmackDown and generate enormous viewership numbers.
