- CM Punk stated during a media interview in Australia that he recently turned down a movie role from WWE Studios during contract negotiations before he re-signed. Punk was offered a role in the new horror movie “No One Lives.”
Apparently Stephanie McMahon thought Punk would be perfect playing the role of a “30-something scumbag with dirtbag good looks and soulless eyes.” Punk added that he thought the idea was interesting but it came up at a time when he was leaving.
As noted before, WWE was looking to get Punk into one of their movies as a part of the big branding and merchandising push that they’re kicking off with Punk. Word is that officials continue to look for a new WWE Studios script that would suit Punk and are hoping to get him in a movie next year.
