Top WWE Star Takes Shot At CM Punk’s UFC Record

CM Punk in UFC

A big-name WWE star believes they’d fare better than CM Punk if they switched to UFC.

Disillusioned with life as a WWE Superstar, CM Punk decided he was done with the company in 2014 sensationally walking out following the Royal Rumble.

With his wrestling career seemingly behind him, Punk embarked on a new journey with UFC. The star made his debut for the promotion at UFC 203 on September 10th, 2016, but was quickly defeated by Mickey Gall via submission in the first round.

Following the loss, Punk fought again in 2018 against Mike Jackson but was defeated via unanimous decision. The result was overturned and the fight was declared a no-contest after Jackson tested positive for marijuana.

Since returning to WWE, Punk has been wrapped up in a feud with Seth Rollins, and the World Heavyweight Champion recently took the opportunity to have a dig at his rival’s UFC record.

During an interview with Marc Raimondi, Rollins said he’d never make a UFC fighter, but if he tried it, he’d still be better than Punk.

I call them all out. Try it out. I can’t do what they do. I’d go in there and get knocked out or choked out in two seconds.

I’d probably do better than Punk but I still would lose, most likely. But, they can’t come and do what we do either.

They’re the same, same umbrella, but two totally different worlds.”

Steve Austin Open To Match With CM Punk

Despite being out injured CM Punk remains in demand. Speaking in a new interview Steve Austin appeared to leave the door open for a match with the former AEW star.

Back in November, it was reported that CM Punk was pushing for a match with Steve Austin, and many within WWE were optimistic about a deal coming together.

Austin hasn’t wrestled since defeating Kevin Owens at WrestleMania 38, although several pitches were made to get him back in the ring at WrestleMania 39.
