Todd Grisham and CM Punk had a little reunion during an ESPN interview, and the latter admitted the hypocrisy of his situation in UFC. Punk stated that it did bug him when part time wrestlers would come back to WWE and take spots from the full time guys. He also stated that he is aware that he is doing the same thing to MMA fighters. However, Punk feels that he is providing opportunities for opponents to make a good amount of money.

Of all the people that were hoping for a reconciliation, Steve Austin was the one that actually had a chance to make amends between CM Punk and Vince McMahon. Austin stated that he tried to offer to be the peacekeeper, in much the same way that Jim Ross was when he was going through his own issues with WWE. Unfortunately for wrestling fans, though, Punk went out and signed a deal with UFC instead. That makes a reunion highly unlikely.
