Report: CM Punk Not Transitioning Well Into MMA

There are now reports that CM Punk works hard in training, but his transition into a MMA fighter isn’t going as smooth. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, notes how the sparring sessions have not fared well for Punk.

The original plan was for Punk to debut in the summer or late 2015. More time to train and injuries have delayed Punk’s MMA debut. Mickey Gall earned the right to fight Punk at UFC 199, but days later Punk was pulled from the card citing an injury.

There’s no word when Punk will step into the Octagon. He left WWE over three years ago and some thought fighting for the UFC was pure publicity.

    I recall saying something a few months ago. The chances of it are like 10,000 to 1 but for the sake of thinking, what if WWE manages to smooth things over ala Ultimate Warrior with Punk? They keep it extra quiet and along the lines, Finn Balor is in with AJ and the Bullet Club. At a big time PPV like SummerSlam, a surprise 5th member is brought out at the very end of the show. It’s CM Punk. It would be their Hollywood Hogan moment. Now I realize we’ve beaten this horse already, I think it died like 2 years ago. But after all that’s happened, this would be a genuine shock. No one would see it coming.

    ….heh. CougarLife commercial just came on.

    I still think he will at least do that fight

    • ‘Drowen Hart #NN #NBNC ?????

      I hope so. If he doesn’t then all that hype and money obviously goes to waste.

    Still a challenge out there for CM Stunk. Three rounds.

    I said from the very first day that CM Junk doesn’t have what it takes to be a fighter. Believe me, that idiot is never going to make his UFC debut.

    • The Shockmaster
