CM Punk might return to pro wrestling, but not WWE

While CM Punk is relying on the power of positivity to carry him as far as he can go in his budding UFC career, he hasn’t completely turned his back on the idea of a return to pro wrestling. But not like you might think.

When asked about the possibility of a return on the Russillo & Kanell show today, he had this to say:

"No, I don't think so. But it is one of those ‘never say never’ things. I like to cover all my bases, just so some internet dweeb is going to be like, 'you said you'd never wrestle again!' But WWE? No. Absolutely not. But you never know, I could pop up here and there. Let me explain that to you even better: it's not going to even be televised, it's going to be me in a ninja fucking outfit wrestling one of my buddies and nobody's ever going to know. It's going to be very 'Monty Python,' so to speak."

I think he’s still holding that grudge against WWE for firing him on his wedding day, folks. You know, among other things.

We now eagerly await an independent wrestler rocking a ninja outfit at a show claiming to be Punk to get his name out there.
