Phil Brooks, more famously known as former WWE superstar CM Punk, will make his Octagon debut at UFC 203 this Saturday against Mickey Gall. However, Punk can never escape questions about his past and he was recently asked about a possible return to the WWE.
The 37-year-old MMA rookie was a guest on The Wrestling Compadres Slamcast when host Carrlyn Bathe asked her many questions about his professional wrestling career. Some of the questions include his CM Punk name, keeping in touch with WWE superstars and a possible return to the company he walked out of two years ago.
CM Punk revealed that he misses some of his genuine friends from the wrestling industry. However, it seems like he is really serious about never wanting to come back to the WWE.
“I’ve kept in touch with some genuine folks from there and there are some that, if I run into at an airport, I’d probably hug and say, ‘Hey, how are you doing?’ and catch up real quick,” Punk said.
“But the thought of going back there is like the thought of going to summer school. It’s like, you have nightmares about it,” he added.
It should be noted that the Chicago native is currently in a middle of a lawsuit against WWE doctor, Chris Amann. He mentioned in a recent interview with Inside MMA that Vince McMahon is bankrolling the lawsuit.
Nevertheless, CM Punk is ready to make his MMA debut in Cleveland, the same city where he walked out of the WWE. UFC 203 will be on September 10, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena, the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
