According to the report from Fightful Select, the plan for Punk is for him to return as an in-ring performer. Their sources also have indicated that the most likely location for Punk will be AEW. With them confirming that there has been ongoing discussions between a company official and Punk regarding him returning as a wrestler within the company.
The report does also state that neither Punk nor AEW have officially confirmed this. And, that they have not heard any specifics regarding a contract being signed, creative plans etc. However, higher ups within WWE do reportedly believe that Punk is AEW bound.
