ECW founder and WWE personality Paul Heyman was interviewed by the Wrap this week while promoting WrestleMania 32. The subject of CM Punk coming back to WWE came up and Heyman had an interesting response:
“I don’t think he’s asked to be welcomed back, and I don’t think WWE is of the opinion that Punk wants to come back. And I think Punk’s attitude at this moment is to validate their theory.
“He’s focused on getting that first fight in. He really wants that first fight.”
