CM Punk returns to wrestling: CM Punk makes shock wrestling comeback under a mask after five years

CM Punk left the WWE and seemingly wrestling in 2014 and never looked back.

That is until now, at a random independent show, nonetheless.

CM Punk as the WWE champion at the height of his run

Punk, real name Phillip Brooks, went on to carve out an MMA career and went 0-2 in UFC in rather unspectacular fashion.

He has said on many occasions that he has no interest in returning to wrestling and the rumours linking him with a move to All Elite Wrestling were intense a few months ago.

Instead of making a big-time return, the former WWE champion turned up at an independent show on Friday night – under a mask it should be noted – delivered his finishing move the GTS and departed again.

While the clip leaves a lot open to interpretation, a picture of Punk in the same gear that the masked man wore from the same event has surfaced.

Furthermore, renowned indie wrester, Silas Young confirmed Punk’s appearance in a tweet.

While it’s cool that Punk would make a comeback like this, fans would still love the 40-year-old to have one last run at the top.

AEW is much more likely if that was to happen, but there is every chance this was just a one-off, too.
