CM Punk has been making headlines all week thanks to his trial with WWE Dr. Chris Amann, and his big fight against Mike Jackson which is set to take place at UFC 225.
Punk has also been answering a lot of questions about a potential return to professional wrestling, and when he was asked if he’ll be appearing at All In when the event takes place in September, he said that it won’t be happening.
The former WWE Champion was later asked if there’s any possibility that he could be attending the event as a fan during an interview with Metal Injection, but he explained why that won’t be happening either.
“No, I got some crippling anxiety when I’m in crowds now. My wife has it really bad, so it gets amplified if she’s with me. Unless it’s a Stanley Cup Final or an occasional Cubs game, I don’t think you’ll see me surrounding myself in a sea of people.”
Since leaving the professional wrestling world CM Punk has given no indication that he wants to return, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change any time soon.
When asked about his stance on wrestling earlier this week, the former WWE star said that he’s completely done.
“Yesterday I said a bunch of stuff about wrestling, like how I’d 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. A lot of people like to be mad at me about that. They make fun of me because I lost my first fight, and that’s fine you’re entitled to your opinion. But you do not own me and I am entitled to do what I want to do and that’s what I’m doing. Wrestling is in the rear view mirror.”
