CM Punk’s return to WWE got everyone talking, and they’ve made a ton of money as well. Now, even former WWE Superstars can understand why this worked out as a big investment that paid off.
Matt Riddle recently shared his thoughts on CM Punk’s to WWE. The two kept missing each other in the UFC and now in WWE. Their paths seemed to have avoided direct confrontation until now. That won’t stop Riddle from commenting on Punk’s return.
Matt Riddle and UFC had a notably public falling out, marked by Dana White’s strong words, labeling Riddle a “f*cking moron” following a second drug test failure related to cannabis. On the other hand, Punk’s departure from WWE in 2014 was marked by a highly publicized rift, but over time, enough bridges were mended for Punk to make a surprising return to the wrestling giant.
When questioned about CM Punk’s return by MMA Junkie, Matt Riddle provided his perspective on this significant development.
“I’m not surprised because WWE, they like money and CM Punk is money, just like he was money in Mixed Martial Arts. You can’t argue with a man that is money. That’s like with UFC. I know if I fight, I’ll sell tickets. It’s just if they want it.”
Matt Riddle and CM Punk won’t get the chance to mix it up in WWE, unless something changes about their current employment situation. It is also not a shocker for Riddle to see Punk return, but only time will tell if he ever joins him.
We will have to see what is in Matt Riddle’s future. He may return to MMA, but he also has MLW dates ahead of him.
