CM Punk has appeared for every WWE brand at this point. He was even around the WWE Performance Center for NXT this week, but he did not appear on the show. That being said, one NXT Superstar was very confident that the Second City Savior wouldn’t be joining WWE’s developmental brand.

Before this week’s WWE Raw on December 11th, the significant question revolved around which brand the newly returned CM Punk would choose to sign with. Raw, SmackDown, and even NXT presented offers.

As expected by many, CM Punk ultimately decided to align with Monday Night Raw, hinting at a potential future match with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins in a subsequent promo segment. SmackDown was a tempting landing pad, but his home is now the red brand.

While this outcome was predicted by numerous fans, one WWE star also appeared rather confident. Dijak took to X just before Punk’s major decision, wagering a substantial amount of money with his followers that the Best in the World wouldn’t opt to commit his future to NXT.


If @CMPunk signs with @WWENXT I’ll give everyone who likes this tweet $500.

After CM Punk signed a deal with RAW, Dijak posted once again, this time to up the stakes a bit more. “Darn guess I will have to spend this $750,000 elsewhere oh well,” he posted.

The tweet in question has garnered 5,000 likes. This implies that Dijak would now be out of pocket approximately $2.5 million. Fortunately for him, WWE did not take an unexpected turn in Punk’s creative direction, so he doesn’t owe anyone anything.
