The Straight Edge Superstar completely stole the spotlight with his unexpected return. Speaking of his return, a recent report from PW Insider shed light on when exactly CM Punk inked a deal with the Stamford-based promotions. According to the report via Ringside News, Punk and WWE agreed around a week ago.

The 45-year-old has reportedly signed a three-year contract with the company. However, the specifics regarding the nature of his contract remain unknown. It is unclear whether Punk has agreed to a light schedule like Brock Lesnar or if he would make weekly appearances on WWE programming. 

The deal between the two parties was kept under wraps. No staff members, creatives, or even the top talents had any information about the return of the Second City Saint. There were even plans to keep his return saved for the upcoming Royal Rumble in 2024. However, the company had to rush his comeback to avoid any sort of leak within the company.

The creative head of WWE, Triple H, arguably pulled off two of the biggest returns in the history of WWE on the same night. The Survivor Series 2023 saw the stupendous return of CM Punk and Randy Orton. While the latter’s return was almost certain, no one anticipated the idea of the Second City Saint joining WWE.

In the post-show press conference, Triple H shared his thoughts on welcoming Punk back to WWE after nearly a decade. The 54-year-old stated that people grow and change with time. Moreover, he claimed that the CM Punk in 2023 is a different person from the Punk who left WWE in 2014.

Everybody grows, everybody changes. Punk is a different person, I'm a different person & this is a different company — If you’re still the same guy you were 10 years ago, you messed up. Everybody grows.
