    I think Punk might drop to the amateurs after this, maybe build himself up. I don't see him leaving MMA that easily, even if he does leave UFC.

      It's pretty clear he's done in UFC. Doesn't mean he's done in MMA, but I'd be staggered - staggered - if he ever got another shot in the UFC.


      I think that a serious wrestling offer might be on the table before too much longer, too. That'll test whether or not he wants to stick with this and if his apathy towards wrestling is fading...

        That's it. Punk had two bites of the cherry and both were the extreme ends of the shite spectrum. He had a go but if that's the end product of 3+ years of training then at 39 he best pack it in. That was border line a living autopsy. And Mike Jackson is terrible to begin with!

          The desire is there but I just don't think its a good idea. Anyone is somewhat of an MMA expert will tell you that while Punk did improve from his last fight, he basically did full time MMA training for over two years and still didn't do plenty of the basics properly. On top of simply not being a good athlete, the wear and tear on his body and age playing against him.. Its not going to happen.

          Edit: So Graves gave an interview and stated that his tweets stem from Punk basically turning his back on everyone in WWE just because they work there. Seems petty on Punk's part. Graves also said he was set off by comments Punk made this week (not referring to the trial)

          Idk, still think Graves looks bad here for throwing a temper tantrum and acting like Punk lost cause he has no friends lmao

          Its not news that Punk is an asshole.

            Do you think it would be harder to book CM Punk in wrestling ( though even the 6 yr olds know it's fake) after he's been such a loser in MMA? I guess it's just the point of having such a loser as the top guy...

              No, I don't think it will. I still kinda feel that any promotion going would take him in and just pretend the MMA stuff never happened.

              I don't think the MMA stuff necessarily cuts both ways. There's a kind of an extra frisson there when you know someone is a shooter, but if you've already gotten over in wrestling then I'm not sure I see how a poor record in MMA would hurt you nowadays. There's simply too many people who don't give a shit.

                He needs to stop fighting. He's getting his ass kicked. It's embarrassing

                I mean I liked him as a wrestler but after seeing the ear enhancement Mickey gave him, he should never have been back in the octagon. He's looking like such a wuss that im starting to think even AJ Lee can kick his ass

                Ppl talk about getting back on the horse when you fall off, but if the horse runs over you and pulls your pants down and neighs a laugh at you, it's best to find something else to ride. However, he's made such an ass out of himself that maybe he should have people riding him.

                I'm afraid if he's at "all in" ppl will trip over his big, nasty ear

                  This Punk/UFC venture baffled me from the word go. Being as terrible an athlete as he is, with zero sporting background, starting in his mid 30s, he should never have ever been anywhere near an MMA ring. After 4 years with Roufusport, I actually thought he might fair a little better on Saturday... That was a pummeling.

                    Graves may have beef with Punk ams is entitled to an opinion, but seeing him tag Vince and HHH in his rant was childish and unprofessional.

                      The thing that irked me the most about that Graves rant was the timing. He could have gone on this rant at any time prior to the fight, yet he chose to do it when he did. I'm also of the thought that private beefs should be handled in private, but in the age of social media everyone has their choice, I guess. Not a good look on him, regardless on whether his gripe has merit or not.

                        Yeah, no more Punk/MMA, please, ever.

                        But I honestly think he'd still have no trouble if he came back to wrestling. Even a lot of fans chortling about his failure would probably change their tunes on a dime, as well they should. Hope he does have something to do with All In, I'd be pleased as hell to see him involved.

                          Punk is still marketable in wrestling. He didn't get knocked out last time, though he should have. But since he didn't, it saved him some, and he's a good enough promo to talk his way into drawing a good crowd. But yeah, he should never MMA again. He's 40. Had he started training at like, 20, maybe even 25, I'd give him a chance.

                          But honestly, Punk is the last big rabbit out of the hat WWE could ever pull out to get attention that no one would expect. That's something. He's marketable in the wrestling business, and if he ever wanted to, a Punk promo could be HUGE in wrestling, even outside WWE. But he should give up MMA. Who's to say a young Punk wouldn't be hell in the cage, but old Punk just can't do it.

                            I think outside WWE is really the only consideration right now with Punk in wrestling. He and those close to him have been pretty clear that he hates WWE and they really drained the love of wrestling out of him. At best we could expect some kind of outside WWE appearance, which would be a big deal no matter where it was, but that feels like a stretch.

                              Yeah, i wouldn't rule out the Hall of fame later and maybe a match to end it... but he is older than people realize and he cut people out of his life that work there.. he has zero interest in going back.

                              I just wish someone would clue him in, that he wouldn't have to work that hard to be a draw on the indy scene.. he wouldn't have to work three days a week....or take cars, sleep on stranger's couchs. Hopefully, he finds that spark again because its simply what he does best.

                                He's probably aware that he could comfortably be a big deal anywhere he went, but if he's burnt out, he's burnt out. He may well feel wrestling in general is toxic for him as a person. I too hope he finds a spark to come back in some capacity eventually, but he's got to do what's right for himself first and foremost.
