CM Punk’s return to WWE brought big business. In fact, Eric Bischoff even said it is likely the most financially successful move in pro wrestling history. The ticket sales are only more proof of that fact.

WWE wasted no time in organizing CM Punk’s first match after his return to the company, and it happened at Madison Square Garden in New York City, where he faced Dominik Mysterio on December 26th. The event turned out to be massive success. CM Punk keeps selling tickets, too.

WrestleTix has reported strong sales for Saturday’s house show in the KIA Forum. Before Punk’s inclusion, they had sold 8,816 tickets for a setup of 11,991. Five days later, after Punk’s advertisement, they sold an additional 1,560 tickets, with the total distributed tickets reaching 10,376.

CM Punk’s next match on Saturday, December 30th, at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, CA, will see him wrestle Dominik Mysterio once again. Obviously, fans want to see that match go down.


CM Punk has already confirmed his participation in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match, and fans can expect to see him at the January 8th Raw in Portland, Oregon. Punk will also return for the January 22nd show in New Orleans, although no further appearances have been officially confirmed at this time.

Odds are, WWE will keep up the CM Punk appearances, because it brings big business. At this point, he is arguably the top draw in the company, and he has only been back for just over a month at this point.
