CM Punk is scheduled to return to WWE programming for the upcoming Payback pay-per-view, wherein he will face a former opponent of his in Chris Jericho.
Rumors about Punk's return have run rampant since his departure. Would he return as a face? Would he return any time before SummerSlam? Who is he going to feud with?
While nothing is set in stone and anything can happen in WWE, one thing we can be sure of is that there are a lot of wrestlers on the roster that could have an interesting feud with Punk when he does return.
Here is a list of 10 potential candidates that I would like to see Punk go up against in the rest of the year, broken down as five he could face while still being a heel and five he could face if he does indeed turn to the good side.
