CM Punk took to Twitter to respond to the Rock’s phone call last night, here is what he had to say,
Thanks Los Angeles. Nice to hear from you. @STAPLESCenter

I’m sure he did truly enjoy hearing about last night’s RAW, if it does nothing more it probably at least makes him feel like a made an everlasting affect on pro wrestling, but one can help to wonder if this moment gets enough buzz in the mainstream could Vince McMahon offer out an olive branch to the Straight Edge Superstar and try and woo him back. We are 40 days out from Mania, maybe not enough time to set up a match, but maybe an appearance.
Even though it was the Rock who did it (and he kind has free reign when he’s on WWE TV) this is the first positive response by the company when it comes to the CM Punk chants, so maybe, just maybe we might be getting somewhere. I had always said it would take some time before the bridges that were burned would be built again, but maybe last night was the first brick laid to bring Punk back to the WWE for one last run, I mean after all his buddy Joe is making waves and I think the WWE and the fans would love to see a Punk vs Joe rematch in a WWE ring one day.
