Fan made image claims that CM Punk is returning to WWE

2014 was arguably CM Punk's biggest year in WWE and it was largely due to the fact that he was last seen on WWE TV at the Royal Rumble in January.

What followed were several months of fan speculation, CM Punk chants and constant rumours of backstage dissension.

Punk had been one of the most popular stars in the company for a number of years but reportedly left the company when he became unhappy with the creative direction it was headed in.

It has now been over a year since Punk last appeared in a WWE ring and he has now signed a deal to move to MMA promotion UFC.

Some WWE fans still harbour hopes that Punk will return to WWE one day and they may have thought that they had their wish this weekend.


Reports surfaced this weekend that the WWE's official Instagram profile had tweeted a picture claiming that Punk had quit UFC and could appear at tonight's RAW.

The image was reportedly deleted soon after it was uploaded but that now even appears to be a falsehood.

The report was not true and the so called screen shot of the Instagram post is in fact an edited image put together by a fan using Photoshop.

WWE fans have caused the company a fair bit in the last few days with this image and then the hacking of Cesaro's Twitter account.

WWE paying the price of going digital

It is very unlikely to see a superstar without an official Twitter page these days and live pictures from backstage at shows end up on the company's Instagram page.

But in recent weeks we have seen Seth Rollins and now Cesaro's Twitter accounts hacked and used to post content that really shouldn't be shared.

With technology becoming more and more important within the WWE, from the WWE Network to their many social channels, they are currently paying the price.

The number of embarrassments that the company have had to try and recoup from in recent weeks is far too high for a company like WWE.
