Ric Flair Believes The WWE Locker Room Would “Riot” If CM Punk Was Handed A WrestleMania Main Event

Ric Flair believes the WWE locker room would not take kindly to CM Punk showing up and being handed a WrestleMania main event.

There has also been speculation that CM Punk may be heading to WWE under the new regime. While there haven’t been any official reports that suggest Punk is heading to WWE, Ric Flair discussed a possible CM Punk return on his To Be The Man podcast.

I mean, it’s not about his ability. I’m just talking about that I can’t even fathom the WWE even entertaining bringing a guy in that would be putting him ahead of [AJ] Styles, [Randy] Orton. I mean, you could have Steve wrestle either one of those guys. If Steve can work, if his neck is okay, Steve is a working fool. He could wrestle Randy. You’d have guys jumping off the roof if you brought Punk in there and threw him in the main event at WrestleMania.”

 While Triple H may extend an olive branch to Punk if it’s best for business, we’ll have to wait and see if Punk accepts.
