CM Punk's return to WWE had instigated big plans that could have benefited the promotion big-time. The second city saint received a thunderous ovation during his return at Survivor Series in Chicago, and it was a historic moment. Punk returned to action at the Royal Rumble, but the fans' excitement was cut short after he sustained an injury that ruled him out of action. The fans' joy to see Punk in the WrestleMania main event faltered after it was revealed that he would not be able to compete. But it looks like WWE is working out some plans and using Punk in some capacity.

However, Ace Steel also has reservations over the route since WWE did an injury angle to rule him out of action.

“I don’t know that they go that route since they did an injury angle to pull him out since they did the storyline on him; [Drew] stomps on his arm. There’s the physicality that puts him out. I personally don’t want to see him in an onscreen role unless It’s in the meantime he is doing NXT or something,” Steel added.
