CM Punk’s legal battles might be in the rearview mirror and if you ask him he wants pro wrestling to be a thing of the past as well. The Second City Savior recently spoke to Aaron Bronsteter where he was very clear about his intentions when it came to pro wrestling.
With All In coming up soon in Punk’s backyard fans who plan on attending the event were naturally holding out hope that CM Punk might make the show. His meet and greet a day before the biggest indie wrestling show in history also made some fans think it could be an even bigger possibility. But when he was asked about a pro wrestling return, CM Punk didn’t mix words as he was very direct in his answer.
“Yesterday I said a bunch of stuff about wrestling about how I had never gotten a true offer this does not mean I want to wrestle. I’m done, I’m done, I’m done with professional wrestling,” CM Punk said.
“A lot of people like to be mad at me about that and make fun of me because I lost my first fight and I’m like, ‘that’s fine you’re entitled to your opinion. But you do not own me so I’m entitled to do what I want to do.’ And that’s what I’m doing.”
“Wrestling is in the rearview mirror. I’ve been trying for five years to put wrestling in the rearview mirror and some people just like won’t let it go. They like wanna live my life for me and I kinda don’t understand that. But it doesn’t matter what I say. I’ve said: ‘no, no, no’ so many time and people have always been like, ‘oh so there’s a chance?'”
But CM Punk wanted to make it very clear that he is not like Terry Funk who retired more times than I have the time to go through and count. It doesn’t look like CM Punk will be lacing up his boots again which is kind of a sad thing and although the natural inclination in pro wrestling is to think everything is a work it doesn’t look like he’s making this up.
But in the end, we’re just glad CM Punk is happy and that he and Colt Cabana were able to win their crucial court case against WWE’s doctor.
