As noted, CM Punk hosted his special "CM Punk Live: Best in the World" panel / interview on Friday evening near his hometown of Chicago, Illinois as part of STARRCAST III weekend.
During the live interview, the former WWE Superstar and UFC fighter discussed whether or not he will ever return to WWE, if he would ever work for All Elite Wrestling (AEW) or other pro wrestling companies and more.
"I wouldn't not talk to them," Punk said. "On what planet, in what other business does somebody suspend somebody else, and then they don't come and get them after the suspension. Like, why is it up to me? It's just a weird situation, but that being said, I'm over it. I've been over it for a very long time, it's in the past."
Punk added, "I'm 40 years old and I try to be as zen and wise as I possibly can be. ... I'll have a conversation with anybody. But it's nothing—like, I'm not calling them, but if they're like, 'Oh, hey,' I mean, I'll talk to you. See what you got to say, but it better be good. I think I had a pretty good career, I don't think there's anything left that I need to accomplish."
Additionally, "The Best in the World" touched on topics regarding Vince McMahon, John Cena and more.
