However, the former WWE champion,CM Punk has not responded to this incident. CM Punk, who had signed multi-fight contract with UFC has previously stated on several occasions that he is not considering a return to the squared circle anytime soon.
Moreover, he has not shown any interest of returning to the WWE ring either. Though Punk made a surprise WWE appearance in the talk show called WWE Backstage as an analyst, but his contract was directly with Fox and not the WWE. Kenta and CM Punk both share the same finisher that is the Go To Sleep(GTS) and it is really a dream of many wrestling fans to see both the stars sharing the same ring at the same time.
