3 Dream Opponents For CM Punk If He Returns To WWE
CM Punk is one of the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling. Punk was a massive name when he was in WWE, and he was quite popular in the WWE Universe. However, he left the company in 2014 when he was fired on his wedding day.
WWE signed Punk in 2005, and he achieved plenty of success in his wrestling career. He won the ECW title once, tag team titles once, Intercontinental title once and the WWE title five times. In fact, he also won the Money in the Bank twice. Punk's last WWE title reign lasted 434 days, and he was the longest world champion in the recent years until Brock Lesnar surpassed him last year.
Punk provided numerous top-notch matches in his career. He faced elite opponents like John Cena, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, The Rock and many more. He was an exceptional performer in the squared circle, and his mic skill was impressive.
Punk started his MMA career after he left WWE. He signed for UFC and made his MMA debut in 2016 but lost the match in first round. He also lost his second UFC match last year, and he is unlikely to have a third fight in UFC.
Presently, Punk has a tiny chance to return to WWE, but he can face several top superstars if he decides to make a comeback. Here we discuss three superstars who could be CM Punk's dream opponents.
