Money in the Bank star says CM Punk will be back soon

Published Add your comment

Money in the Bank will take place this Sunday and for the first time ever will see an eight man ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

In the build up to the event, one of the competitors in the big title match has spoken on the current saga with former WWE Champion CM Punk.

Alberto Del Rio was speaking to help promote Sunday's event and amongst the questions, the disbanding of the Shield, return of Brock Lesnar and his thoughts on Money in the Bank matches.

But he was eventually asked if he thinks the 'Best in the World' CM Punk will return to the company and his answer was one WWE fans have wanted to hear for a while.

He said: "Yeah, of course. He'll be back soon. I don't know when, but he'll back." 

Fans have been chanting the name of the Chicago native at key times of live shows for months as they are clearly eager for his return.

The saga continues however as day by day a new WWE legend offers their input and Punks return seems more and more distant.

The loss of the 'Best in the World'

CM Punk hasn't been seen in a WWE ring since his impressive performance at this years Royal Rumble where he entered #1 and was still alive in the final four.

Many people speculated that he left the WWE because he was outraged at Batista's return and subsequent Royal Rumble victory ahead of fan favourite Daniel Bryan.

Either way Punk's return has seemed far away ever since the Rumble and doesn't appear to be on the horizon now.

Mexico's greatest export on everything

The rest of the interview with Del Rio saw him confess that he is not a fan of ladder matches because there is a lot of pain involved in them.

He also claimed to be oblivious to the WWE's biggest talking point of 2014 so far - the disbanding of the Shield, after he said "I don't really think about The Shield".

Ahead of Sunday however, he spoke about former Shield member Roman Reigns saying "Roman Reigns is a great competitor. He's strong, fast. I would say he is the new rising star for the WWE."

When faced with the hypothetical scenario of winning the title then the much anticipated return of Brock Lesnar to challenge him, he said "it doesn't really matter who you need to face when you're the champion. That's the reason someone is the champion... to face everybody in the world."
