CM Punk’s Wife Breaks Her Silence On His Fighting Career

Phil Brooks, better known as the WWE superstar CM Punk, attempted to take over the world of mixed martial arts last year. For his big MMA debut, the pro-wrestler turned fighter faced off against Mickey Gall inside the octagon at UFC 203. Of course, things did not exactly go Punk’s way.

After suffering a brutal first round submission loss to Gall, it seemed CM Punk’s career in mixed martial arts had reached a sudden end. However, it would seem the WWE megastar is now gearing up for a comeback. AJ Mendez-Brooks, former pro-wrestler and wife to CM Punk, recently appeared on the Jim Norton and Sam Roberts show to offer a few words on Punk’s fighting future.

Duke Roufus, CM Punk’s coach, recently took to Instagram to reveal that the former pro-wrestler is back in training for another fight.

Speaking on the possibility of Punk returning to fighting, as transcribed by Flo Combat, Mendez-Brooks said:

“Yes, he wants to fight again. I’m never going to be the person that stops someone from doing whatever their dream is so I support it.

“I just look at his face and say stay that way.”

Speaking on Punk’s brutal loss to Gall, Mendez-Brooks also revealed that Punk earned a stunning $1 million from his octagon debut.

“I don’t think it hurt that for one night of working you get paid a million dollars. He was pretty psyched about that. He came backstage with the most giant smile on his face. He’s incredibly sweaty and I just threw myself on him and I’m like ‘I’m so freaking proud of you’.

“His speech was just so moving and I try not to get emotional in front of people so we just went to our little corner and it was so f**king cool and I’m so proud of him.”
