CM Punk is never old news in WWE circles. Even though the former superstar has not wrestled in WWE since January, the day after Royal Rumble, he's still one of the main talking points amongst the biggest wrestling talkers.
Mick Foley joined Stone Cold Steve Austin on the The Steve Austin Show this week, and during the podcast, the topic naturally shifted to the once longest reigning WWE champion's of the modern era.
Ever since that fateful day when Vince McMahon said CM Punk was on a sabbatical, reports have flooded the internet regarding Punk's WWE future.
Steve Austin and Mick Foley are not the first people to talk about CM Punk's future and they certainly won't be the last. But these comments from Austin certainly give Punk fans something to think about, with Stone Cold reflecting on his own experiences with WWE and hinting that money signs could lure Punk back.
"When Jim Ross sent me a card in the mail I jumped at the chance to come back and, you know, get it while I could," Austin revealed. "You gotta make hay while the sun shines. He ain't making hay right now. You can only make hay so long."
Love for wrestling
But Mick Foley disagreed with Steve Austin on the show regarding Stone Cold's comments that CM Punk could be tempted back by money.
Instead, he feels that CM Punk has all the money that he will ever need. But there may be hope for Punk fans yet, with Foley revealing that he thinks the former superstar's love for wrestling could make him come back down the line.
"He's gotta find something he loves as much as this. Because, you know, it's really hard to replace. I don't know if he's got that in his life he doesn't need to come back," explained Foley.
"He's made all the money he's ever gonna need. I don't know if he's going to get the itch. You know, you don't get to be as good as Punk was without loving it. And if you love it, there's really only one place to be, there (in WWE)."
