JBL – ‘I’m Really Proud Of CM Punk’s UFC & MMA Endeavors’



On a recent edition of WWE’s “The Bump,” WWE Hall of Famer JBL expressed admiration for CM Punk’s decision to pursue a career in MMA, commending Punk for his courageous pursuit.

JBL noted that Punk’s choice was bold and deserving of recognition.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On telling CM Punk that he was proud of his journey in MMA: “CM Punk, I got to wrestle him a lot when he came in. I liked him then, and I like him now, and I’m glad he’s back. I’m proud of his journey. I thought his journey was awesome. I saw him for the first time last year in Vegas, and I pulled him aside. I said, I’m really proud of what you did in MMA. That took a lot of guts to stop doing something that you’re best in the world at, and go do something completely different, and put all that effort that he did into that.”

On why what Punk did in MMA was ballsy: “I mean, that was ballsy. I was really proud of him for doing that. I thought it was wonderful, what he did. Then to come back and the crowd’s going crazy, I hate that he got hurt right when he comes back, but I’ve always liked CM Punk, and I think he’s deserving of everything that he’s done. He’s worked his butt off for a lot of things.”

In his professional career, Punk participated in two UFC fights, resulting in a record of 0-2. Subsequently, he transitioned back to pro wrestling in 2021 by signing with AEW. However, following the termination of his AEW contract last year, he re-signed with WWE in November, marking his return to Survivor Series: WarGames.
