CM Punk has had a problem with Vince McMahon for a while now and for numerous reasons.
Last week he revealed that Vince McMahon and the WWE had sent him termination papers on his wedding day.
Punk has talked badly about the WWE ever since, but Vince McMahon recently apologized to Punk and told him he would be willing to let bygones be bygones and was leaving the door open for him if he ever wanted to return to the WWE.
Stone Cold Steve Austin was interviewing McMahon on a recent podcast and ask him about CM Punk, leading to McMahon apologizing.
“I would like to apologize. Sometimes in a big corporation, the legal people don’t know what talent relations are doing, and conversely. Punk got his severance papers on the day he got married and that was coincidence, so I want to personally apologize for that. Other than that, the only thing I want to say about Punk is that there have been a number of individuals in the past who have been disgruntled, said a lot of things about the organization, and I’m not gonna wash dirty laundry in public. I don’t think there’s any reason for that. I think there’s a lot of things he may say that he may regret one day, in terms of looking back at it, but nonetheless, I hope that one day, we’ll be able to get back together again,” he said.

He also admitted that he had not listened to the podcast of Punk putting down the WWE but had heard that he had a lot to say.
“I understand he used a lot of expletives and things of that nature,” said McMahon. “I don’t want to speak for Punk. He speaks for himself. I heard it was a number of things he said. It’s his point of view and there’s always two sides to every story.”

CM Punk fans have been hoping to see him back in the ring on WWE, but it seems like Punk is still too upset to consider a return at the moment.
Do you think McMahon’s apology will motivate CM Punk to return to the WWE?
