CM Punk hasn’t laced up his pro wrestling boots for far too long. Some fans are still clamoring to see the Second City Savior wrestle again, and the idea isn’t 100% out of the realm of possibility.
Punk recently spoke to Uproxx where he admitted that the possibility is there for a pro wrestling return, but it’s not his world anymore. He’s not going to come in and tell people how it’s going to be like Hulk Hogan. He said the pro wrestling world doesn’t even need CM Punk and he’s fine with that.
“I think the right combination could maybe be figured out, but it’s also not for me to figure out. It’s not my world anymore. I’m certainly not Hulk Hogan, where I’m going to show up somewhere and like, ‘no, this is how it’s going to be.’ The wrestling world doesn’t necessarily need CM Punk and that’s absolutely fine. Everyone seems to be doing great. I don’t know, it’s like flavors of ice cream. I walk into an ice cream shop one time and I’m like, ‘Oh, that seems like a good flavor. Give me two scoops of that.’ It’s just gotta be the right time, right place, right situation.”
There are still so many dream matches that fans can write for CM Punk, but he’s okay with remaining out of the world for now. Given the right time, place, and situation, you also never know if CM Punk might agree to have another pro wrestling match before finally hanging up his wrist tape for good.
