At one point in time CM Punk was one of the biggest stars in professional wrestling, but he decided to part ways with WWE, and he has yet to return to the wrestling ring.
CM Punk achieved massive success during his run as a professional wrestler, and during a recent appearance on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast he noted that making a lot of money and meeting his wife are his two biggest takeaways from working in the business.
“[The business] paid me a lot of money and I met my wife because of my job,” Punk said. “Those are the two big takeaways, they did try to take a lot of my money but they were very unsuccessful in that. I think I’ve always been a big believer, and Dave Batista is the same way, calls himself the dream chaser. I just figured it out at an early age, probably because my parents forced me to go to church and stuff and immediately started to realize a lot of stuff was just b——t and life is short.
“You need to figure out what you love and just try to do that for a living. I was floored when somebody paid me, the first time I ever made money wrestling, I was like well f***, I don’t have to have a real job ever again. I was all in. It let me follow my dreams. I’ve been everywhere twice because of wrestling. I met my wife, all the fans bought my house, so I appreciate that.”
