On his Kliq This podcast, Nash discussed why he would rather have Punk as an occasional on-screen character than a commentator:

"It would be (too much) for me. You don't wanna take a talent like that that's special (and make them a full-time commentator). Why not give him like a Piper's Pit [talking segment] where he just does a Pipebomb? Every couple shows. Punk's Pipebomb – boom, there we go, we're done."

Punk is widely regarded as one of the best on the mic. He served as an analyst for the WrestleMania XL Kickoff event last week.

CM Punk's return  by injury

The roof entirely blew up when CM Punk returned at Survivor Series 2023. After returning to the WWE, Punk has been involved in some heated promos with CM Punk, Drew McIntyre and Cody Rhodes. His in-ring return came against Dominik during a live event, and afterwards, he stepped inside the ring directly in the men's Royal Rumble match of 2024. Punk was in the final two and was about to deliver GTS to the American Nightmare, but Cody countered and pushed Punk out of the ring, to win the contest. On the following night on Raw, CM Punk revealed that he had suffered an injury while competing in the Royal Rumble match and would undergo recovery which would take him out for months.
