Is CM Punk returning to WWE to face Shinsuke Nakamura?

The hype for CM Punk’s return to WWE is pumping up as the weeks go by. Over the past few weeks, the Second City Saint has provided several teases of his return from posting about his meeting with two WWE Board Members to teasing a WWE logo while doing commentary in a show.

Punk is expected to return at Survivor Series 2023; however, there is no official confirmation, and his opponent has not been decided. One superstar who could potentially face Punk upon his return to WWE is Shinsuke Nakamura. After the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, Nakamura delivered a compelling promo mentioning his next opponent without revealing the name.

Over the past few weeks, the Japanese superstar has been searching for a new worthy opponent. In the last few promos, the King of Strong Styles has teased his new opponent in his last few promos but his opponent’s identity is still a secret.

However, there is a high chance that his most awaited opponent is going to be CM Punk. The cryptic promos by Nakamura are raising the expectations of many fans, leading them to believe that these hints may suggest the Second City Saint’s comeback to WWE.

Shinsuke Nakamura’s cryptic message ahead of Survivor Series

In the latest WWE Monday Night Raw episode, Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Chad Gable in a singles match, dominating the entire bout. However, the impact of his victory was less significant than the promo featuring him that WWE uploaded to their official Instagram account.

Over the past few weeks, the King of Strong Styles has been wandering around, cutting promos to find a worthy opponent for himself. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find anyone of his level. However, this recent promo indicates that Nakamura has finally found someone worthy enough to compete with him inside the squared circle.

In that promo, Nakamura said, “How long? How long do I need to wait? I’m ready to fight! Where are you? I know where you’re at. You are close. I take ALL from you. This is my opportunity! I’m waiting!”

Since last week many reports have been indicating that Shinsuke Nakamura will be issuing an open challenge at the Survivor Series WarGames 2023 event. However, there is still no official announcement from WWE regarding that.
