CM Punk to return to the WWE at Wrestlemania XXX?

See also

According to an Apr. 2 post from Bleacher Report, Stone Cold Steve Austin believes CM Punk will make his grand return to the WWE with an appearance this weekend at Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans.

Punk, 35, has been out of the WWE fold since Jan. 26, when he competed for 50 minutes at Royal Rumble. By the time Wrestlemania XXX goes down, it will have been almost four months since Punk's last WWE appearance.

Despite the long layoff, Austin thinks Punk will be in attendance at Wrestlemania XXX.

I'm telling you, I'm going to stick to my prediction that CM Punk is going to make his return at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. I made this prediction two months ago here on the show. It's been a long time, I think he's cooled his jets, he's got some rest, and I think it's time to get back to work. I don't see him participating in a match but it would be great to see him in a run-in to establish himself, to entrench himself immediately in a memorable and just a great moment, and I would say plant himself firmly in the middle of an angle, because he would be the angle, by attacking whoever he sees fit to attack or asserting his presence rather, whatever the case may be.

Wrestlemania XXX goes down this weekend in New Orleans, and the WWE hasn't made any official announcement on Punk's return.

At present time, no one knows for sure if Punk will be appearing at Wrestlemania XXX, except for the Chicago native himself.

Analysis: Austin makes some great points about Punk's possible return to the WWE. Punk has had three months to rest up and get his body back to normal, so it's time to get back to work.

If Punk really wanted WWE Universe to forget about him, he could have easily tweeted that he is done with pro wrestling.

Since Punk never actually addressed the matter, him leaving the WWE could be just part of an elaborate storyline. WWE fans will find out for sure this weekend, when Wrestlemania XXX hits New Orleans.
