Jack Swagger Reveals CM Punk was Making $2 Million a Fight


During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet (video below), former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger commented on his MMA career, how much CM Punk was paid for his UFC run, and more. You can check out some highlights and a video of the interview below:

On wanting to fight under the name Jack Swagger: “Technically right now WWE owns the intellectual property for it but it’s not trademarked so I’m working to own that. I’m hoping to fight as Jack Swagger… I think today you need to really consider yourself an athlete that considers himself a brand. It is a business. We are all here to make money, a lot of money. So we have to brand ourselves accordingly and Jack Swagger is a cool last name.”

On CM Punk’s UFC career: “We both crossed over to MMA and tried to make the jump right at the professional level. Some of us did that successfully. You have to measure the W though because of how much money he made. He made $2 million per fight, that’s a W in some books absolutely.”

On All Elite Wrestling (AEW): “Very excited about it. When they signed Chris Jericho, they immediately changed the landscape of pro wrestling which is very cool. Hats off to Cody, to The Bucks to everybody involved in AEW. It truly is incredible because it’s definitely changing the landscape of pro wrestling.”
