Is CM Punk returning to pro wrestling?

Fightful Select reported that CM Punk has been in talks to return to pro wrestling as an in-ring performer; however, not with WWE.

According to the outlet, Punk, 42, has been in talks with WWE rival All Elite Wrestling.

Despite the report, there is no confirmation of a contract signing between Punk and Tony Khan’s promotion.

Nothing is set in stone regarding when or how he would return, but AEW is seen as the “most likely landing spot” for the wrestling star.

The three-time WWE champion tried to build a career in mixed martial arts and signed with the UFC in December 2014.

But he lost both his fights – although the latter was recently declared a no-contest – and resurfaced in the wrestling world in November 2019 as part of Fox Sports’ punditry team for WWE Backstage.

When was CM Punk’s last match in pro wrestling?

CM Punk’s last wrestling match was at WWE’s Royal Rumble in 2014.

There he was eliminated from the match by Kane.
