Jey Uso spoke to WWE's The Bump about CM Punk and his return. Uso thinks RAW needs to sign a star like CM Punk. He is a person who attracts a lot of attention and has a lot of haters. The fact is he would do great things. “Sign CM Punk.

Like, why wouldn’t we sign CM Punk? I know he got a whole bunch of haters or whatever. Hey, if we going to be honest, he’s a Superstar. First and foremost, people talk about him. And if we got anything to do with wrestling, his name is in it."-Uso said, as quoted by!

Although many react negatively to CM Punk's return, Uso believes that CM Punk would be a great person to work with. "He’s like on some Tribal Chief status. He’s [a] top guy regardless of whatever’s going on.

So my invitation is open, man. Bring him, like, let’s go. Let’s run it, bro. I’ll be your first one to run with. It’s all good. It’s all love. Let’s go. Let’s run it. Welcome back though, CM Punk”.

- he continued.

Bobby Lashley on CM Punk's return

Another wrestler who reacted to CM Punk's return is Bobby Lashley. In an interview with Steve Fall's Ten Count, he emphasized that it is difficult to predict whether CM Punk can do great things with his return.

Lashley has memories of him when CM Punk was part of WWE in 2008. “I really don’t know, to be honest with you. I was actually leaving [WWE in 2008) around the time when Punk was really starting to pick up a little steam.

I mean, he was there, but he really didn’t do anything at that time. And I know he had a big impact in WWE in his time there. I spoke with some of the guys that know him. I got mixed feelings. Some people were very against it, some people were, you know, whatever.

But you know, it’s a land of opportunity. So, if he comes back and he helps out the show, and that’s the business side of it. I don’t really know Punk too personally. When I was fighting, he went to UFC. I put my money on him.

So he does owe me a little bit of money (Laughs). Twice. I was like, Oh, you could do it. Come on”. Lashley hopes that CM Punk won't get everything right away with his return. He believes that CM Punk must show loyalty and qualities in the long run.

“For integrity purposes, I understand he has a big name, he’s coming back. And he’s gonna do some big numbers, but I hope they make him kind of work for some of the stuff. I hope he’s not one of the people that ‘oh okay, he comes back, gonna win the Rumble, we’re gonna do this, we’re gonna do that.’ I hope they give him an opportunity to kind of prove his loyalty to the business and some of the people in there just to let everybody know, some of the naysayers, some of the people that aren’t too happy about him being there.

I hope he has his opportunity to work his way back up to the top and not just [be] given everything, because maybe he negotiated a good contract that allowed him to do that”.
