Wrestlemania 30 Update: CM Punk vs. Randy Orton vs. Batista As Chick Magnet Makes Return at Raw

CM Punk Return could make his return in the squared circle in Monday Night's Raw, and his role is expected to be really interesting moving forward with a potential triple-threat match against Randy Orton and Batista very much a possibility.
In the latest blog entry on Lords of Pain, CM Punk's presence on Monday was confirmed by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer. Punk, who made a leave of absence from WWE because of disinterest with his current role in the plot, will reportedly assume an influential character in his comeback.
"Meltzer said on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that CM Punk is expected to be at Monday's RAW from Chicago. Meltzer wouldn't say he's 100% sure Punk will be there and really didn't sound too sure of it but his source, who is reportedly a top WWE star, said it's 100% certain," according to Lords of Pain.
Triple Threat Match at Wrestlemania XXX
CM Punk's return in WWE only suggested the rift between him and the business' top honcho Vince McMahon has been repaired. Punk has been looking for a large role ever since losing the WWE championship to the Rock at Royal Rumble 2013.
Apparently, the WWE is willing to give what Punk wants, as a possible clash with WWE COO Triple H or perhaps his inclusion in the feud between Batista and reigning champion Randy Orton is now being looked into.
"Regarding plans for WrestleMania XXX, if Punk does return at RAW he will either replace Daniel Bryan in the match with Triple H or go into the WWE World Heavyweight Title match with Batista and Randy Orton. Punk likely isn't winning the title unless he plans on signing a new contract in July and that impression wasn't given," Lords of Pain stated.
As Meltzer stressed, CM Punk is one of WWE's biggest stars and his absence in the grand daddy of them all will surely hurt Wrestlemania XXX promotional effort.
His potential showdown with the Authority leader Triple H might be interesting, but there's no match that could catapult Punk's confidence than a triple-threat matchup with the Viper and the Animal.
CM Punk welcome back to the place where you're truly belong.
