CM Punk addressed his health status at the Money in the Bank press conference.

He noted that he felt “ready to go” but that there were systems in place to protect him. He said:

I like to keep people in suspense, but I will say I feel great and I’m ready to go. There are things in place to protect me against myself that I maybe wish were in place 10 years ago, but we don’t need to talk about the past.

Great personnel, great facilities. I’m busting my ass to get back, if I can steal what John [Cena] was talking about, for the fans.

Whether you hate me or love me, I’m coming back to enjoy all these moments that were robbed from me when I got injured. Shit happens. It’s a contact sport. It stinks. I’ve been working very hard to rush the rehab and come back. Everyone behind me has supported it, but they’ve also been like, “We’re not in a hurry”, and I love that.

He also addressed a question on whether he might share the ring with his wife, AJ Lee. He noted:

You would have to ask my wife, but she’s not here; she’s taking care of Larry. I don’t want to fall in the trap of saying never say never. I don’t want to give people false hope. I also will not put words in her mouth and say, you know, I think this could happen.

I think this is a brave new world. And I don’t think a lot of people thought I was going to show up. It’s really all on her. She’s busy. I’m super proud of her. She’s doing her own thing. She’s got a — I don’t even know if I’m allowed to talk about this stuff. She’s got a production company started up. She’s writing TV, movies, all kinds of stuff.

I always say I’m a bad husband because I never know what project she’s talking about. “Oh, I have a meeting.” I’m like, “With who? Is it Netflix? Is it Hulu? Is it CBS?” I don’t know. She’s got so many irons and so many different fires. I will say, as a fan of hers, I would love to see it.
