WWE’s Triple H took part in the post-WWE Survivor Series press conference on Saturday night and discussed several topics, including the surprise return of CM Punk to the company to close out the Premium Live Event.

“This is one of those lightning in a bottle moments that came together very quickly, we are incredibly excited about it, it’s been a long time, and in some ways, been a long time coming. You can say this about CM Punk, love him, hate him, positive, negative, whatever you want to say, people talk about him all the time, he’s a magnet for that, he’s a conversation starter and it’s tough to look past that. For me, if our fans want it, if the WWE Universe is excited to have it, then let’s go and we’ll figure out the rest of it from there.

This came together super quick, which I’m sure is why it stayed very tight. There was a lot of speculation, and at that point, it was nothing but speculation, for most of the time it was speculation, it didn’t really come to fruition until everybody stopped thinking it was going to happen, and then, all of a sudden, it was happening, extremely excited. A lot of time has gone by, almost ten years. If you are the same person you were 10 years ago, 10 years later, you messed up, everybody grows and everybody changes, I’m a different person and he’s a different person, this is a different company, we’re all on the same even starting ground.

What’s next for CM Punk, that will be interesting won’t it, I’m interested in seeing that myself. I know whatever it is, it will be talked about, it’ll be exciting and it will be a thrill ride for the WWE Universe, no matter what it is. I’m thrilled, we’re all thrilled to have him back here and have him back, cliche to say, have him back home in WWE, it’s where he belongs.”
