Sean 'X-Pac' Waltman has said he can see CM Punk signing with new promotion All Elite Wrestling, in an episode of his 1-2-360 Podcast.
In the latest episode that also featured Rob Van Dam, Waltman said how he is confident the Chicago Made star will return to wrestling one day.
He said: "Trust me he will be back; I promise you at some point CM Punk will be back involved in wrestling."
Punk, who left the WWE in 2014 due to issues backstage, was reportedly part of a recent event, though the wrestler he was rumored to be competed under a mask.
Waltman also spoke about the possibility of the former WWE Champion signing with AEW, something that Tony Khan is hopeful about.
"I can honestly see him showing up in AEW," said Waltman. "That could be like this huge surprise that they're waiting to drop with the announcement of a TV deal."
Waltman most recently returned to WWE at the annual Hall of Fame ceremony, where he was inducted into the hall as part of DX, alongside Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Billy Gunn, 'Road Dogg' Jesse James, and the departed Chyna.
