CM Punk has returned to Twitter for the first time since his shock exit from WWE, and bizarrely did so in order to strike a deal with the lion mascot of NHL outfit the LA Kings.

Punk has left the company following the Royal Rumble in January, and had not tweeted since this moment. He has been able to stay out of the public glare since his departure, and it is unclear if CM Punk will ever return to WWE.

He has, however, now returned to social media with CM Punk entering into something of a tete-a-tete with Bailey - the mascot for the Kings - before an encounter with Chicago Blackhawks - the team supported by the former WWE superstar.

Bailey started the exchange by goading CM Punk, claiming the longest reigning WWE champion of the modern era would ‘go back into hiding’ were the Blackhawks to succumb to defeat at the hands of the Kings.

CM Punk then felt the need to spice up the meeting, and claimed he would wear a LA Kings jersey at the United Center were the Blackhawks to lose. He then requested that Bailey pull on a Blackhawks top at the Staples Center if Chicago got the win.

The Blackhawks did clinch the victory CM Punk had craved, winning 3-1. We’ll have to wait and see how Bailey responds.
