2047. Water is no longer readily available. Packs of wild dogs roam the highways, driving what's left of humanity underground in fear. Trees no longer exist. And yet, still, there's a new story every week on CM Punk returning to WWE somehow.
This week - where there are more trees and less dogs, admittedly - the latest is that Punk wouldn't not talk to WWE and might well be headed back to commentate or host a show on Fox. Which will definitely lead to years of speculation on him hitting the ring again.
Away from the Punk merry-go-round, there's major talk of the WWE creative team being "in disarray" thanks to a number of big changes. Which is a shame, because we could always count on the stability of creative and their decisions never being changed last minute. Sigh.
There's also been talk of big plans for the return of Ronda Rousey, Triple H and Becky Lynch have unfollowed Ric Flair on Instagram, Finn Balor has new hair, Rusev has a new moustache and WWE are apparently desperate to have Donald Trump return to the ring. And through it all, the superstars took to social media to show off their lives away from the ring, in the gym, on the beach and anywhere they spotted a good photo opp.
This was the week in WWE Instagram...
