CM Punk appeared on ESPN’s The MMA Show this week to promote the third season of Netflix’s Beastmaster, which he is one of the hosts of.
During the interview, Punk was asked about his comments earlier this summer where he seemed to indicate that the door might be open for a pro wrestling return. Punk said that he is not interested in returning to pro wrestling, stating that nothing interests him there.
“To me that’s like an escape hatch,” Punk said of a pro wrestling return. “I’ve got season three of Beastmaster on Netflix, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we get to move forward and do a season four. Aside from all the stuff that I can talk to you about, there’s all this secret stuff that I’m not allowed to talk about that I am doing too.
“It’s not even a matter of not going to wrestling because I’m busy doing other stuff, there’s just nothing that interests me in wrestling.”
Punk added that he hasn’t had any offers from any wrestling promotions since his one-sided UFC 225 unanimous decision loss to Mike Jackson in June, but noted that he’s “a hard guy to get a hold of.”
Punk was also asked about last week’s All In event in Chicago. He said that he couldn’t have been at the show even if he wanted to because he was shooting for a movie that day, but claimed that he was never made an offer to be at the show.
“I was never made an offer to be there,” Punk said. “They said, ‘hey, if you want to come, you should come.’ I was like, ‘eh, oh, OK.’ It was extremely vague… it wasn’t an offer.”
