Former WWE Champion CM Punk is going to wrestle again but it just won’t be inside of the squared circle while wearing his famous attire.
ROH (Ring of Honor) star Marty Scurll recently announced that he would be taking on Punk at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo that takes place from March 22 – 24th.
However, it turns out that they will be thumb wrestling, according to the former WWE star. You can see their exchange here:
Once he signed with the WWE, his career took off, and he would later hold several championships including the WWE Title. However, after dealing with injuries and not wanting to wrestle anymore, Punk decided to walk out of the company on the Monday following the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in 2014.
Since he departed from the WWE, fans have wanted to see Punk compete in the squared circle again. Instead, he took his talents to the Octagon in the UFC.
The former WWE Champion fought Mike Jackson in a welterweight bout at the UFC 225 pay-per-view event on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. As seen in the fight, Jackson dominated it and Punk showed a ton of heart but was winded after the first round. Jackson was able to pick up the unanimous decision win. He lost in his MMA debut against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September of 2016 by first round submission.
