Montez Ford would welcome CM Punk back to WWE if he chooses to make a return to the company.
It has been a tumultuous couple of weeks regarding CM Punk. At AEW All In, Punk was involved in yet another backstage altercation. However, this one would be different than those in the past in various ways. Namely, Punk not only fought with Jack Perry, he also reportedly lunged at AEW president Tony Khan while furiously quitting the company.
These events would leave Khan no other choice but to fire the Chicago native with cause, despite Punk’s drawing power and status as the companies “real world’s champion”. Punk has yet to comment on the matter.
With Punk’s free agency fans have speculated that he could return to WWE, but there has been no confirmation on this idea as of this writing.
Speaking on The Happy Hour, Montez Ford was asked what he would say to WWE management if they asked him about possibly bringing Punk back.
“If they asked my opinion on it, I’m so open to every single aspect, talent in the world, whether they come from all works of life. I feel like everyone has something to bring to the table. Believe it or not, whether people love this individual or not, and this goes for any WWE superstar, if they are generating buzz and generating topics and generating people talking, that’s all good for business. I love to be the person to always welcome someone back with great arms. If he wants to make his way back this way, I guess we can have a battle and see who is the best person from Chicago,”Montez Ford
Ford has been allied up with Bobby Lashley on SmackDown alongside Angelo Dawkins as of late, playing a heel team for the first time on their current run on the main roster.
