After CM Punk lost his second bout in UFC as well, a lot of people have started believing that he former WWE Champion will return to wrestling eventually.
A great opportunity for his in-ring return looks to be the Madison Square Garden show ROH and NJPW are planning to run in cooperation next year.
During the recent episode of his Ross Report podcast, Jim Ross talked about this and the WWE Legend said that his money is on Punk not appearing at the show:
“Is it going to happen? Heck, I don’t know. My money would say, ‘no’. My money would say, ‘no’ – I don’t think Phil wants to get back into the [pro] wrestling world and I don’t blame him”
Apart from this, Jim Ross also talked about how NJPW cannot take over WWE in terms of popularity, the injury he suffered during the recent NJPW show and more.
