WWE is keen on the idea of bringing CM Punk back to the company, according to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer (via Wrestling News).

The 38-year-old walked out in early 2014 amid frustrations over his injury concerns, as well as long-standing creative differences.

He would later publicly air his grievances on Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast, where he appeared to rule out a return to WWE.

But according to Meltzer, Punk has not completely burnt his bridges in the eyes of management, who would be open to the prospect of a reunion.

Speaking on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the respected wrestling journalist said: “No matter what is said, WWE wants CM Punk back.”

Few will be surprised to learn that Vince McMahon would be happy to roll out the red carpet for Punk, having previously done so for the likes of Ultimate Warrior, Bret Hart, Kurt Angle and Goldberg – who also departed in acrimony.

But Punk himself has so far shown little indication he would be prepared to reverse his retirement. The Straight Edge Superstar is reportedly still pursuing a career in the octagon, having fought his first match – a defeat to Micky Gall – back in September.

Until he formally puts the latest rumours to bed, though, speculation around his future is likely to continue.
