Monday evening’s potential tease, nevertheless, wasn’t very cryptic in any respect.
Previous to the triple risk match to find out the primary contender for GUNTHER’s Intercontinental Championship between Ricochet, Chad Gable, and “Massive” Bronson Reed, Nakamura interrupted Ricochet’s entrance, attacking him on the ramp and really noticeably dropping him with a Go To Sleep, the longtime ending transfer of none aside from CM Punk. Whereas the GTS has been utilized by others in WWE, most notably by KENTA (fka Hideo Itami) all through his time in “WWE NXT” and elsewhere, it is not a part of Nakamura’s regular repertoire and matches with the opposite teases we have seen over the previous few weeks. Corey Graves referenced a well-known quote from Punk through the October sixth version of “WWE Smackdown,” reciting, “The best trick the satan ever pulled was making the world neglect that he existed” through the graphics bundle for Nakamura vs. Rollins at “Fastlane.” Rollins himself dropped a “greatest on the planet” reference on “WWE Uncooked” earlier within the feud, and Michael Cole harkened again to a different outdated Punk promo, telling Rollins his many personas over time may very properly embrace “puppeteer” amongst them.
Whether or not Punk does make a WWE return is something however official, however the Easter eggs, seemingly, proceed to be dropped.
