  • CM Punk

    So Punk won his defamation lawsuit days before competing at UFC 225. Depending on how that goes he'll presumably be either much bigger news in the world of MMA, or - more likely - he'll be back in a wrestling capacity before too much longer.

    Any, discuss CM Punk related news here.

    I'm really glad he won the court case, regardless of what you think of Punk that was a pretty damn stupid lawsuit that never should have been brought.

    His MMA career is a joke, but oh well. It'd be very cool if he was at All In in some way, I've heard hints to that effect, but I won't hold my breath either.

      Its weird, cause they don't need Punk to sell Tix so all it really would be is good will for another All in show.. which maybe people think is a foregone conclusion but also you only have Punk appear if he's willing to do a match at the next All in... i think its wasted otherwise.

      i do think we're closer to a Punk in ring return if for no other reason that once gets smashed on Saturday, i can't see him continuing his mma career and what actually can he do?

        To have him appear at all would be huge, but I do agree that setting up a future match would be the absolute ideal. Some would love it but I'd be sad if he just cut a shooty promo about WWE or something. They banned Russo for a reason!

          Ideal: Cody goes over NA.

          Celebration.

          End of the night.

          Except.

          Build a Cody-Punk NWA title feud?

          Yes, please.

            I actually think Punk wouldn't really want to work Japan or that style.. it doesn't really suit what he does so him working Cody and Omega in a one off makes sense.. His goal was always to get to WWE, he's not going to work regular indys anymore i don't think..

            point is, people compare him to Bryan but they are not that alike actually. Especially since WWE killed his interest in wrestling.

              I like it. The weather is getting warm again... let’s go Summer of Punk, vol. 3, please. Except this time... let’s do it all over the world like he claimed in the pipebomb back in ‘11.

                I doubt CM Punk wants to work regularly in wrestling again at all, but I've no doubt he could do a one off with ease, IF he has interest to do so of course. And let's not pretend Cody has become some untouchable puro master... his style is still largely WWE-esque, though he has range to do other things too. And Omega worked with broken down Jericho and got an excellent match out of him, so a Punk match should be a snap for either guy.

                  Yeah, i'm not saying Cody is a puro guy at all.. I just think he would fit Punk's style and like others said you could raise NWA profile if they wanted... i just think Punk wouldn't be too interested in New japan due to the schedule and the intense work style. Just seems like a dude happy to be in Chicago and close to AJ

                    Oh sure, I'm with you there. I could see him doing a one off in the Tokyo Dome, Jericho-style, if the money was right, but more likely he'll make the wrestling come to him, if he bothers at all.

                      However, If Brock Lesnar, Ultimate Warrior, Bill Goldberg, and Bruno Sammartino all came back to the WWE, then why wouldn't Punk want to? He could literally dictate his terms just like Lesnar does. Punk could get paid millions for a few dates with some guarantees built in like: Finally Headlining Wrestlemania in the true main event for either Major Title in the match that closes the show. AND limited dates, AND choosing his opponents, AND being allowed to have relative freedom on the mic.

                      The ball is completely in his hands. He could talk with the WWE and say his terms, and if they don't agree, why sign? He would be stupid otherwise.

                        I think it would take a little bit more time.. he also had issues with Trips and Trips was the guy who brokered most of those returns

                          Not disagreeing, but IF Punk wanted to wrestle again, why would he waste a HUGE payday in a comeback to the WWE for a mediocre payday for anyone else?

                          I would say the earliest we would get a Punk return (if at all) would be right after Mania.

                          Now that would rival Brock 's and Rock's return.

                            Yeah, there's some stuff they're not giving up. Nobody is getting creative control on the level of picking their opponents, lessons have been learned from WCW and if Punk gets it, Brock's going to want it.

                            I don't see him going back to WWE any time soon. He's not going to want to work alongside the guy that just sued him for $1-$5 million.

                            I could actually see Punk preferring to sign with an ROH or someone like that for limited dates. Someone that he can actually help build into possibly legitimate competition. ROH would allow him to do things like All In or PWG or Tokyo Dome one-offs, while keeping his face on TV, allowing him to be home with AJ most of the time and letting him basically dip his toe back into professional wrestling. The trade-off is that they get a star that could probably help them sell out 5k arenas regularly.

                              If he was all about the money though he would have stayed. he was still making millions. You also underestimate how much he could make on one off on the scene or in new japan. As much as i don't think he'd go there.. Jericho didn't come cheap.

                              WWE would probably have to throw him a Brock type deal with incentives and smooth everything over.
