Former WWE Champion CM Punk spoke with Dan Gelston of the AP and continued to rule out a return to pro wrestling. “I don’t pay attention,” Punk said. “People seem to get upset when I say that.” Punk is aware of fans chanting his name at WWE events. “You stop it and five years later people still talk about you? Fans still chant your name? That’s powerful to me.”
Punk, who will be calling a CFFC MMA event that will be broadcast on UFC Fight Pass on December 14, has not ruled out fighting again. “Since my last fight, I’ve been juggling a half-dozen things,” he said. “I kind of gave myself a deadline of the beginning of the new year to find out what is coming next. I don’t rule anything out, absolutely not.” Read the full story at APNews.com.
Powell’s POV: It will be interesting to see if Punk fights on a smaller stage than UFC. Either way, I am curious to see how he does as a color commentator. He’s obviously articulate and that could be a solid career option for him if he’s interested in pursuing it.
