CM Punk made his debut proper on WWE Backstage this evening and, of course, Renee Young asked him about a possible return to a WWE ring to actually wrestle a match. His response:

But I’m 41-years-old and I’ve lived and experienced life where I know to not say ‘no.’ But that’s going to be a bridge that is going to have to be built and it might take as long as building the Great Wall of China. There are some hurdles there.”
