Recently, former WWE Champion CM Punk appeared on the “My Mom’s Basement” podcast at Barstool Sports. He finally opened up on doing the pro wrestling thing again.
“Absolutely. For five years I’ve always been asked that question. No matter what I say, it gets reduced to clickbait, and it gets warped. I’ve gone through some many iterations of people saying, ‘Oh, Punk hates wrestling.’ None of that was ever the case. I think I’ve always been open to it. My attitude has always been that I don’t see it happening. I think I’ve talked about it more recently, but my attitude hasn’t changed. People always ask what would it take to go back, and I say it would take a big bag. So people use their imaginations.”
Moreover, the latest crop – All Elite Wrestling has caught CM Punk’s attention.
“Whenever a mystery opponent is announced they’ll think it is CM Punk, [and] there is nothing wrong with them trying to do that.”
Further, he stated,
“How many shows have they had? There is not a lot of content out there for me to be able to watch. I like The Young Bucks, I [think] what they are doing, it is very punk rock.”
He mentioned that Master P, who recently started his own promotion House of Glory, had reached out to him. While Punk isn’t opposed to coming back to pro wrestling, he has no immediate plans to do so. However, this has to be heartening news for fans anxious to see him mix it up in any wrestling company.
