CM Punk made his surprise return to WWE programming on Tuesday night when he arrived on the set of WWE Backstage. Both WWE and FOX quickly announced that Punk had been signed to a new deal that would have him work as an analyst for the Fox Sports 1 show. But shortly after Punk's arrival, fans started asking another question — if he's back, is his wife AJ Lee on her way back as well? The former Divas Champion continued to work for WWE up through March 2015, but later wrote in her book that she felt "caught in the middle" of the drama between Punk (who left the company in 2014 due to a long list of grievances) and the promotion.
But now that Punk has dipped his toe back inside the wrestling world, there's a glimmer of hope for fans that matches like Lee vs. Becky Lynch, Bayley and Sasha Banks could be a reality.
Check out some of the fan speculation in the list below.
