WWE Universe is still buzzing with excitement after the stunning return of CM Punk at this year’s Survivor Series, hosted in the famed city of Chicago – CM Punk’s own hometown. After nearly a decade’s absence from WWE, the pro wrestling world is fixed on the potential dream matches that could unfold. None more so than WWE’s own celebrated star and multiple-time tag team champion, Jey Uso, who has openly expressed his eagerness to step into the squared circle with Punk.
In a recent sit down with Alex McCarthy of the Daily Mail, Jey Uso didn’t hold back his thoughts on the possibility of a high-profile match with the former AEW star. “People are going to talk about him, so hell yeah, he comes back. That’s what WWE is – no matter what, we’re going to please the fans and make money – why wouldn’t you bring him in?” said Uso, highlighting the blend of fan service and business acumen that defines WWE’s booking decisions.
Uso continued, “I like the guy, man. He was here ten years ago, and there was never any beef. If you’re in this profession, you have to have hard skin and be able to take critique well. You can’t get hot about any of this.” This attitude showcases Uso’s professionalism and readiness to evolve past any historical grievances within the industry.
“So CM Punk is invited to my house; it’s all love. Let’s line it up. I’ll do an angle with CM Punk — I’m ready,” declared Uso with enthusiasm, metaphorically leaving the door open for a personal and professional reunion. “I’m glad he’s back. Last time he was here, I had paint on my face. I’m a different Jey Uso these days.” His statement hints at the transformative journey he has undergone within WWE, now emerging as a seasoned and formidable competitor.
The anticipation doesn’t stop at the personal aspirations of Uso to face CM Punk. Fans are also on the edge of their seats as rumors of a potential showdown with Roman Reigns simmer in the background. Punk’s presence backstage at Survivor Series War Games was no passive affair, with Uso hinting at a shared moment of words between the two, further fueling speculation around their future in-ring narrative.
Adding to the excitement, CM Punk is set to make an electrifying appearance on SmackDown for the highly-anticipated Tribute To The Troops episode, marking his first appearance on the blue brand in nine years. As the WWE landscape continues to evolve with the return of illustrious alumni, the blend of new talents and returning legends keeps fans guessing and the industry thriving.
