CM Punk Leaves the Door Open for Pro Wrestling Return

09 June 2018, 02:27 | Charlene Valdez

Their friendship dates back to when Punk was in WWE and Rousey was dominating UFC, though, hence the former's advice leading up to WrestleMania 34.

Would YOU like to see CM Punk return to wrestling?

Amann had claimed that Punk and Cabana had defamed him during the interview and was seeking damages of one million dollars, but Jurors sided with the defendants after a costly legal battle.

Then came a recent interview with Ariel Helwani in the build to Punk's fight with Mike Jackson, where the former Voice of the Voiceless revealed that he has not been offered anything specific to wrestle.

Punk had a most interesting response, while still denying that he's set for the event. "I could definitely tell you if you asked me that question a week ago when I still felt like I had a foot in the grave, the answer [would have been] no, I don't want anything to do with it". With all the talk over the last few weeks of Cody and The Young Bucks putting together "All In" and being the blueprint that other wrestlers should follow, I have been arguing that they have been following in Cabana's footsteps of the true example of how a wrestler does not to be part of a corporate machine to have a successful pro wrestling career. I knew it was coming, and they delayed it as long as possible because I think they knew (I had a fight scheduled). "They've always been like 'hey if you ever want to maybe do something.' To me that's not enough", said Punk. I've said, "No, no, no, no" so many times that people always kind of be like, 'Oh, so there's a chance?' I love Terry Funk and he retired for the first time when I was two years old. "This [UFC] is where I live now". This is my headspace.

What are your thoughts on Mike Jackson's comments leading up to Saturday's showdown with CM Punk?

But with a vast amount of money circulating round the independent and worldwide wrestling scene at the moment, don't be surprised if the former WWE Champion does test the waters in the future.

"I legit feel this is a bucket list thing for him", Jackson told MMAWeekly.

White also says Punk's self-described spectacularly bad debut may have been the result of "UFC jitters" and he expects to see a different guy this time around. I go over to Roufusport to cross train a lot.

Punk added right now his mind is "100%" on fighting and was hopeful he would continue his career in UFC. "To me that means yes".

Do you think Punk will wrestle again?
