In-Ring Return of “The Voice of the Voiceless” CM Punk can be expected by WWE Summerslam.

As CM Punk’s anticipated return to WWE approaches, speculation is rife about who he might face at SummerSlam 2024. Punk, who has been out of action due to a tricep injury since January, has continued to make his presence felt through various feuds, most notably with Drew McIntyre.

With his return potentially set for August or September, here are the top five possible opponents for CM Punk at WWE SummerSlam 2024.

5. Cody Rhodes

Cody Rhodes is coming fresh off his title defense against Logan Paul and stands as a compelling opponent for CM Punk. Rhodes, who has been on a significant journey since returning to WWE, could deliver an intense and personal storyline with Punk. Their match would not only be a clash of two top-tier talents but also a battle of narratives, with both men having a storied history in and out of WWE.

4. Logan Paul

Logan Paul is the current United States Champion and has proven his mettle in the ring, at WM 40 against Randy Orton and Kevin Owens. Although he fell short against Cody Rhodes, his star power and in-ring skills make him a viable contender for Punk.

A match between Punk and Paul could serve as a high-profile showdown, bringing mainstream attention and showcasing Paul’s rapid improvement in WWE. While their paths might not immediately cross due to brand differences, a brief encounter or backstage segment could set the stage for a future confrontation.

3. Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns and CM Punk are two of the biggest names in wrestling, both with a history deeply intertwined with Paul Heyman. A match between these two would be a marquee event, likely drawing huge numbers for WWE.

The storyline could explore their shared past and their individual evolutions, with Heyman’s involvement adding another layer of complexity. Reigns’ dominance as the “Tribal Chief” and Punk’s rebellious gimmick would create a dynamic and compelling narrative leading into SummerSlam.

2. Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins and CM Punk have a real-life history of tension that WWE could easily turn into a compelling storyline. Rollins, who has openly expressed disdain for Punk in the past, could reignite their feud in a manner that blurs the lines between reality and kayfabe.

Their clash at Survivor Series WarGames 2023, where Rollins was visibly unhappy with Punk’s return, sets the stage for a deeply personal and high-stakes match. WWE has a knack for leveraging real-life conflicts, and this feud could be one of the most anticipated matches of the year.

1. Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre, who has built his current gimmick around injuring Punk, is perhaps the most logical and intense opponent for Punk’s return match. Their feud has been simmering since McIntyre sidelined Punk and has all the makings of a classic WWE rivalry.

Punk’s interference in McIntyre’s championship match at WrestleMania XL has only added fuel to the fire. Their ongoing war of words and physical confrontations make this match the most likely and exciting prospect for SummerSlam 2024. The narrative of revenge and redemption would be powerful, ensuring a high-stakes and emotionally charged showdown.
