“We’ve been trying to contact CM Punk on and off for well over a year,” said Hinkles to The Sun. “We wanted him on the first show we did in Edinburgh in 2015. I’ve tried going through friends in the industry, I’ve gone through his website and sent dozens of emails but the opportunity has never been this big. We want to offer CM Punk $1 million dollars (£770,000) to come and join the 5 Star Wrestling tour starting June 10th. It’s a genuine offer. We’d love to hear back from the man himself. We want to do this with him.”
Punk has basically retired from wrestling since leaving WWE on bad terms in January 2014. He eventually signed a two-fight deal with the UFC. Punk was soundly defeated in the opening round in his lone MMA appearance.
