CM Punk Interested In Wrestling Matches For New Japan Pro Wrestling

CM Punk made his return to the wrestling world back in August during AEW’s “The First Dance” Rampage Special that was held in Punks hometown of Chicago. Since his debut with the company he has been present for every show and has had some great matches against the likes of Darby Allen, Will Hobbs, and Daniel Garcia.

Also since his return, many have wondered if there will be a chance if we could possibly see Punk walk through the forbidden door and wrestle some stars in NJPW.

While speaking with Rich Eisen, CM Punk made it clear that he has a huge interest in competing in NJPW but that might not happen just yet due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m both feet in on AEW, but I know a bunch of New Japan guys wind up coming over and wrestling on AEW Dynamite and Rampage. I’m not averse to the idea, but I know they’re in the throws of their G1 and stuff like that, so I don’t know if they can spare the guys. And I think because of the pandemic, you don’t see a whole lot of travel from America to Japan. I definitely think you’d have to do a hard quarantine once you got to Japan, and I just don’t think that’s a viable option at this point. I gotta do that when I kick acting gigs, and that’s hard enough. To be in Japan for two weeks sitting in a hotel, I’d probably lose my mind. But I’m for sure interested.”

Only time will tell if we will ever get to see Punk wrestle for New Japan. It is noted that Punk has already been called out by both Will Osprey and Kenta.
