CM Punk Offered Seven Figures To Return To Pro Wrestling

UFC fighter, and former WWE star, CM Punk has been offered seven figures to return to the world of professional wrestling.

An independent wrestling promotion based out of England, Five Star Wrestling, has offered Punk over $1 million to compete in their upcoming 128-man wrestling tournament.

Since he is under contract with the UFC, Punk is not free to wrestle wherever he pleases. However, UFC President Dana White has recently said he’s not sure whether or not Punk will fight again.

Dan Hickles, the promoter of Five Star Wrestling, recently appeared on the Pancakes and Powerslams shows and discussed the possibility of Punk wrestling in his promotion.

“If Conor McGregor, the lightweight champion of UFC, can go and box Floyd Mayweather, why can’t CM Punk come and make $1 million wrestling?” Hickles said.

“If the lightweight champion can go out and actually lose in a real fight. In the world of fighting, the last thing you want is your real champion to go and lose in another sport.”

“If CM Punk returns to professional wrestling, it would be an iconic moment, a great moment, that could really kickstart (a potential return),” Hickles continued.

“He could go back to the WWE, and they would pay him fortunes to do that, far more than we could ever offer. But what we could do is say that you can go do that for a company where you’ve already left, and we don’t know the real circumstances behind that, that’s his thing. But, he can come and really kickstart something here. He could come and be the guy that took this (promotion) to the top level.”
