There have been a lot of drama and controversy over CM Punk’s sudden departure over the WWE. What happened was back in the Royal Rumble ppv in January earlier this year, Punk was the first man to enter the 30 rumble matchup and he lasted until the final four at the end… Punk got eliminated and lost the Rumble match. Punk didn’t appear on RAW the next day. There have been a lot of mystery surrounding Punk’s departure until Punk finally revealed why he disappeared from WWE all of a sudden. He went on a podcast show and claimed he was “fired” on his wedding day by Vince McMahon. Just not too long ago, Vince McMahon went on Stone Cold’s podcast show and admitted that it’s true that Vince fired Punk on his wedding day and apologized to him.
It’s sad that CM Punk is gone from the WWE. Sad of what went down between him and Vince. Like most wrestling fans, I love CM Punk too. He’s been my favorite wrestler and performer for a long time. I stopped watching WWE ever since he left last year.
In the video above is CM Punk himself announcing that he has signed with the UFC full time and he will make his MMA debut in 2015.
What do you think? Do you think Punk has what it takes to fight in the Octagon? UFC is real fighting and pro wrestling isn’t. Doing a little reading on Punk, he never had any MMA experience. Punk spent most of his life on pro wrestling. We’ll have to wait to see how Punk will do in his first MMA fight.
Since it looks like that Punk signed a full time contract in the UFC, it looks like we won’t be seeing Punk back in the WWE anytime soon which is sad. Punk is a great performer and wrestler. He’s also one of the best on the mic as he delivers the best promos in wrestling.
I wish him good luck in his new UFC career.
