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.
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.
