During an interview on WWE's The Bump, Mick Foley talked about CM Punk as well as the conversation they had after Punk's departure from WWE in 2014. CM Punk seemed to have a clear goal back then; Seek happiness elsewhere and return as one of the best wrestlers!

“I remember getting a text from Punk when he left after the Rumble [in 2014]. He was upset, and he and I were pretty close back then. He said, ‘I’ve realized the only way to really make it there, to earn your respect, is to go somewhere else, and then come back.’ He did. It was what, nine years ago? Ten years next month. He’s bigger than ever. No denial of his talent, and that he is going to raise people. People are going to want to not only hang with him, but whether they realize it or not, impress him, and that’s how levels get raised.”- Foley said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Grayson Waller on CM Punk's return

Grayson Waller is another one of those who expressed excitement for CM Punk's return. During a guest appearance on Adrian Hernandez's YouTube channel, Waller admitted that there is a great atmosphere within WWE after CM Punk returned.

“I didn’t realize how wrong the internet was about everything until I came to WWE and I was actually backstage and saw some things. I don’t think there’s anything but positive energy about CM Punk coming back. The entire roster right now is great from top to bottom. Everyone’s challenging each other, everyone wants to be the top guy, but no one’s stepping on anyone to get there. Maybe me. You know, I don’t mind doing that, but everyone’s kind of working together. We want this product to succeed and I think that’s what’s happening so I think everyone’s buzzing to have him back."
