CM Punk might be best known for his WWE fame and his current AEW run but he also had a short-lived UFC career. Eric Bischoff, recently took jabs at Punk’s failed boxing profession.
Bischoff is a very active Twitter user and often interacts with fans on the platform. His recent argument on the social media website turned into making fun of Punk. It all started when Bischoff shared a clip from his podcast, where he gave his thoughts about the growth factors of wrestling promotions.
For those who don’t know, Punk lost all the UFC matches he fought when he signed with the promotion. He lost his debut match at UFC 203 in 2016 and then the second match as well at UFC 225 in 2018. This eventually led UFC to release Punk.
Punk has previously claimed about being a bigger deal than the likes of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and others. Which why Bischoff made fun of Punk pulling “lame” numbers on AEW TV. To support his claim he even shared a graph depicting AEW viewership.
A fan chimed in and brought Punk’s failed UFC career into the Twitter thread and wrote, “And let’s remember when he tried to get into a REAL fight [laughing emoji].” Bischoff was quick to reply to the fan and said Punk was wrong to think he could win real, non-scripted fights.
“He convinced himself since he could win scripted fights, he could win a real one,” Bischoff wrote
It appears Punk was only meant to fight professional wrestling matches and that’s alright he has done a great job as a performer. However, that won’t stop fans from bringing up his failed attempts. You can check out the Eric Bischoff’s tweets below.
