CM Punk parted ways with WWE in 2014, and he hasn’t looked back. The former WWE Champion signed a deal with UFC after leaving the wrestling world, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like Dana White will be giving him another shot after he lost his first two fights.
Even though Punk is no longer involved with professional wrestling, fans still chant his name constantly at WWE live events. CM Punk opened up about the chants while speaking with the Associated Press and he said that he thinks it’s powerful that the fans still chant his name.
“You stop it and five years later people still talk about you? Fans still chant your name? That’s powerful to me,” Punk said.
It was recently announced that Punk will be doing commentary for the MMA promotion CCFC, but he’s not ruling out the possibility of fighting again.
“Since my last fight, I’ve been juggling a half-dozen things,” Punk said. “I kind of gave myself a deadline of the beginning of the new year to find out what is coming next. I don’t rule anything out, absolutely not.”
However, Punk still remains adamant that he won’t be returning to wrestling.
“I don’t pay attention,” Punk said. “People seem to get upset when I say that.”
