With the defamation lawsuit behind him, CM Punk is now free to focus on his UFC return against Mike Jackson at this Saturday’s UFC 225 event from Chicago.
However, while there is ample excitement about Punk’s return to Octagon, there are some wrestling fans who are more interested in knowing about his future in the industry instead.
During a recent interview with MMAFighting.com, the former WWE Champion talked about the case against Dr. Chris Amann, his upcoming fight and more.
In the closing minutes of the interview, the former WWE Star was asked about possibly being part of September’s wrestling show and he replied negatively:
“It’s not happening” Punk said
Continuing on the topic, the UFC Star revealed that while he has been told that the doors are open for him, nobody has ever come up to him with an actual offer for a wrestling return:
“[People have said] hey, if you ever wanna do anything… Nobody’s ever been like, ‘hey, here’s the deal, we’re having a show, we’re paying you X amount and you’re working this guy. Whaddaya say, yes or no?’ Nobody’s ever done that.”
It’s worth mentioning here that Punk had made similar comments about a possible appearance at the show during a short interview immediately following his trial.
However, you can never say never in the wrestling business and as Booker T believes, things could change if the former Champion is defeated in his second UFC fight as well.
