CM Punk about A Potential Wrestling Return Would Look Like

Apr 13, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

Former WWE Champion Phil “CM Punk” Brooks discussed his latest film Jakob’s Wife, which will be released on demand on 4/16 with Uproxx and during the conversation, the idea of a return to professional wrestling was broached.

He stated that the right situation and opponent would be important.

“I think the right combination could maybe be figured out, but it’s also not for me to figure out. It’s not my world anymore. I’m certainly not Hulk Hogan, where I’m going to show up somewhere and like, ‘no, this is how it’s going to be.’ The wrestling world doesn’t necessarily need CM Punk and that’s absolutely fine. Everyone seems to be doing great. I don’t know, it’s like flavors of ice cream. I walk into an ice cream shop one time and I’m like, ‘Oh, that seems like a good flavor. Give me two scoops of that.’ It’s just gotta be the right time, right place, right situation.”

“From a creative mind standpoint, stepping back and looking at the landscape of everything, there are people in WWE that I have wrestled before that maybe, in a certain situation could be interesting. There’s also the business side of things. What’s the biggest possible match for CM Punk? I think there’s Kenny Omega on the one side.

And, you know, unfortunately, ironically enough, for me to go back to WWE, who’s the biggest match for me? It’s probably Triple H. That’s ironic because it’s nothing I’m interested in. It’s just what it is. Am I going to be a businessman and say that’s the match, that’s the big-money match? Well, it’s not my money, so it’s not for me to say.”

    Let this clown fade into obscurity, got popular doing worked shoot promos and had one classic match against Cena and all of a sudden he’s the GOAT.

    Should’ve taken Tony Khan’s money while you were still somewhat relevant!
