After being absent from the ‘rumbling’ PLE for almost a decade, it seems that CM Punk was excited to update his fans about the sequence at which he will be drawn into the arena. As a result, the ex-AEW star took to his Instagram stories and uploaded a number that seemed abrupt at first but made sense later.

In an attempt to let his fans know of his entrant card number, CM Punk uploaded a story with a pitch-black background with only the number “5” written on the screen.

A few moments later, fans noticed that the wrestler had already deleted the story. This means that the Instagram story probably stood for something significant and the wrestler had to remove it from his social media as soon as possible.

However, many fans had already taken a screenshot of the story by then and uploaded it on other social media platforms to speculate on what it could be. As it turns out, several of them believe that this was Punk’s entrant number of Royal Rumble 2024 that he had to take down due to some company policy.

The confidence that the former UFC fighter portrayed suggests that he could be aware that the chances of winning the men’s Royal Rumble event were greatly in his favor. But is that really the case? Lets explore the possibility.

Last year “The American Nightmare” won his ticket to the WrestleMania main event when he conquered the hearts of fans after winning the Royal Rumble. Fans were speculating that a similar repetition could take place this year as well. But considering how much of a buzz Punk’s return has created, it would make sense to see him as the winner of the upcoming PLE.

Moreover, the Chicago-based wrestler is one of the big wrestlers who has never won a Royal Rumble event. Punk also wishes to main event WrestleMania. So, it would make sense to crown him the winner of Royal Rumble 2024 and also grant him the main event at WrestleMania 40.
