Triple H Comments on CM Punk’s WWE Status

Triple H Comments on CM Punk’s WWE Status
During the NXT TakeOver: WarGames post-show media call, Triple H was asked if he had any talks with CM Punk, who started working as an analyst for WWE Backstage earlier this month.

"I have not spoken to him. To be honest, we have not had that conversation. I know he's working for FOX and it's a bit of an arm's length from us. All of this stuff is baby steps, when people want something so bad, it's like they're saying, 'So you're saying there's a chance.' That's the moment of time that we're in."

Hunter noted that some of the commentary on the pre-show may have also led to people speculating that Punk would be involved. He also revealed that he changed some of the verbiage to do what he could to stop people from speculating that Punk would be involved.

"There was a moment where Sam Roberts had said in the Kickoff show a couple of times or was going to say, 'The person is in Chicago.' I was like, just don't say the person and 'in Chicago' in the same sentence because I feel like you're setting that up. 'The person is here' is fine. I understand it and I get it, it is what it is at this point in time."

Punk has stated that he is under contract with FOX for his WWE Backstage role, and has not had any talks with WWE. Triple H said that while there is always a possibility that they might work together in the future, "that's a long, long way."

"Be happy that he's on WWE Backstage and doing something with the business again," Levesque stated. "The rest of it, I've said it a million times, never say never. But that's a long, long way. I know when you say that, people say, 'they're working us!' Because there's nothing that you can say that will make people think otherwise, it is what it is."
