CM Punk has molded himself from being an independent wrestler to becoming one of the biggest and most influential WWE superstars of all time. Despite his continuous injury-prone incidents and slowed-down in-ring career for a while, Punk set the record straight on his status as an in-ring performer.

Ever since Punk returned to pro wrestling in 2021, he has suffered multiple injuries, most recently his triceps injury at the hands of Drew McIntyre in January 2024, and has been labeled to be a fragile, and superstar past his prime by many of his peers.

However, in recent interview with Ariel Helwani on MMA Hour, The Best in the World clearly stated that despite his injury and people mentioning that he would fit well in non-wrestling roles, he still had a lot to offer when it comes to being an in-ring athlete.

“I don’t know. A lot of people said it’s something I would be good at. Regardless of what my triceps want to tell the world, I still have a lot to offer in-ring. Maybe that’s the crazy athlete holding on too long. I look at it like I’m the same age as Terry Funk when he did Roadhouse. I have some time.”


CM Punk is currently slated to be a part of the WrestleMania 40 festivities in Philidelphia this week. Apart from his appearance at WWE World to meet and greet with fans, Punk would also make his presence felt on the day of WrestleMania.

The Second City Saint will be part of commentary during the high-stakes World Heavyweight Title encounter between Drew McIntyre and reigning champion Seth Rollins, both being CM Punk’s heated rivals on Night 2 of the show. So it will be interesting to see if his presence could be a deciding factor in the match outcome despite his injury.
