Speaking on the Kurt Angle Show podcast, the 54-year-old was genuinely surprised to see him back. Angle hopes that The Best in the World keeps his nose clean and doesn’t ruffle any feathers. Moreover, he believes that if Punk manages to work with immaculate solidarity in WWE, he’ll have a great time. Referring to Punk’s turbulent sojourn in AEW, the Olympic Gold Medalist yearned that he wouldn’t emulate the same deeds once again.

Kurt Angle also stated that considering CM Punk stays down to earth, he would be a great asset for WWE. And to some extent, Punk has already shown a glimpse of what he can do. His return on X is already WWE’s most social moment in history.

It’s great news. I’m really surprised he’s back. I will say this, if he keeps his nose clean and doesn’t ruffle any feathers, he’s gonna have a great time there. He’s gonna really be huge for the company.

Moreover, it appears like feuding with Roman Reigns would be the zenith of Punk’s current run. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the plan is to take a lot of time before getting there. However, it’s something under discussion, and WWE feels it would feel gigantic the time they reach there.

The top brass’ main focus is on making Punk vs. Reigns seem a humungous success. However, an anonymous WWE star has expressed concerns over the mentioned long-term approach, considering Punk’s vulnerability to picking up injuries.
