Pretty sure he had a feud with the mountie at one point.

He even sent the Mountie to jail where he was locked away and mistreated and mocked by the people in charge of him. Ali had a similar experience on 205 Live.

That "Nailz was the babyface all along," theory certainly proved sound in the end.

Yikes. He was definitely ahead of the curve in showing us all that ACAB. Especially when he crashed a funeral for big nasty Paul Wight's dead ol' daddy.

I feel bad for Ali, but The NEW Daniel Bryan vs Kofi was a fantastic match and moment in a sea of poo poo (not giving any credit to WWE for the build, anything good came from DB and The New Day)

A good company would have gotten the ball rolling on Ali again after he was healed but, lol

How would yall feel if Retribution was a vehicle for CM Punks return?

I like Punk but I dont know how id feel. He was always kinda sloppy and hes getting up there in age. It might save the angle for some though he still has a lot of fans.

CM Punk coming back is possibly the single biggest angle the WWE could potentially put on to capture fan interest (within the realm of actual possibility, so not "vince mcmahon is publicly fired while weeping uncontrollably" or something) so I feel like having it share time with any other angle would be kind of a waste--Punk wouldn't need it and his return would immediately overshadow whatever it was paired with.

I've never bought into the CM Punk Hype as much as most people on this forum (he just never impressed me in the ring, even though his promos were great) so I can't imagine getting invested in him given the state of WWE.

I don't think you can have Punk return until fans are attending live shows again

Plus Punk already had a run with a lovely version of Nexus, he doesn't need another one

Covered his stomach and he looks softer. On the other hand his gym pics while he was out look like he slimmed up quite a bit

Doesn't help that he's standing next to a guy who uses horse steroids

It would just be Punk and a bunch of jobbers. It would fizzle and Punk would get pissy and quit. But I do think it's a possibility.

Here is my pitch: As much as I hate to say it, IF they built it up correctly. IF. And obviously they wouldn't, but IF! what if Shane is behind Retribution. He's been running RAW Underground to see who has what it takes to go to battle to take WWE down. And Shane tells us we haven't seen everyone who has fought in Underground. It ends up being a combination of bitter perennial midcards like Dolph and Shelton, plus the return of people fired during the plague. They all want their retribution, including Shane for not getting the company and losing it to his sister and her husband. Then he wipes his hands of it and says that he did his part. "Good luck, Dad!"

Then with a leaderless faction they go nuts. Crazy poo poo they can do because there is no audience. They can burn down the ring. Take a sledgehammer to the fan LED screens. Sabotage the lighting rig above the ring so it crashes down onto the ring and collapses. At the end of a Raw crash a giant truck into the production truck and they go off the air. Let the Resistance do shoot interviews on everything.

And whoever is the best talker can give the line: "We're sick of trying to grab the brass ring. We're taking the gold ring."

Just go nuts and build to Survivor Series: War Zone.

Sorry for the fantasy booking, but it just came to me and I wanted to tell people.

It would be cool if Punk came back because he'd likely be one of the few guys allowed to say his own things and not be over scripted to death.
