A British wrestling promoter is attempting to lure CM Punk back into the ring by offering him $1 million dollars … but the former WWE star doesn’t appear to be taking the offer very seriously.
5 Star Wrestling founder Daniel Hinkles told the Sun he’s unsuccessfully been trying to contact Punk in private, but now he’s going public with the offer to hopefully make it happen.
He explains, “We want to offer CM Punk $1 million dollars (£770,000) to come and join the 5 Star Wrestling tour starting June 10. It’s a genuine offer. We’d love to hear back from the man himself.”
Punk hasn’t directly responded, but a fan tweeted him saying “I’m offering you 1.1 mil to wrestle that Wawa Hoagie on a Pole match in my backyard. Smart Mark will film. $$$” and the former champ replied, “sweet. Need half up front. Half of the hoagie.”
Don’t hold your breath waiting for this one to happen.
