CM Punk
Things didn't go as planned in UFC for the straight edge superstar.

CM Punk was the hottest act in the professional wrestling industry only at par with Daniel Bryan when he walked out of the WWE in 2014. It's a known fact that Punk and Vince McMahon didn't always see eye-to-eye and Punk would eventually let his frustrations get the best of him and decided to walk out from the WWE.

It's been four years since he left the WWE and that didn't hinder his popularity even a bit as we can still hear the fans chant his name during the WWE shows more often. Punk quoted that he had zero passion for wrestling when he walked out of the WWE and said that he will never ever return to the squared circle again, and getting fired on his wedding day was the last straw for the straight edge superstar.

He tried his luck inside the Octagon when he had his first MMA fight in the UFC against Mickey Gall where he was defeated in under 3 minutes in the first round by the latter. Since then, he has been on the sidelines apart from showing up on a reality show.

Will he ever return to WWE? That is the question on everyone's mind for four years straight, and only Punk can answer that question. The other question on the fans' minds is, what if Punk never left the WWE? Where would he be now if he hadn't walked out of the company in 2014? Let's have a look.


#6 Match against Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30 where the winner will be added to the WWE Championship match

CM Punk and Daniel Bryan
This would've told a whole new different story!

Daniel Bryan and CM Punk formed an alliance to take on the Wyatt-family in November 2013. The straight edge- vegan combo defeated Harper and Rowan at Survivor Series in a tag team match. The next night on Raw, Punk would try to save Bryan from being taken hostage by the Wyatt-family but got beaten up by the Shield.

This led to CM Punk accusing the authority of orchestrating the attack by the Shield which resulted in an unfinished feud with the director of operations, Kane. The last we saw from this feud was when Kane eliminated Punk from the Royal Rumble.

If Punk hadn't decided to walk out of the WWE, he could've started to feud against the Authority alongside Daniel Bryan on the road to WrestleMania and could've taken Triple H's place in the match against Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 30 where the winner would be added to the WWE Championship match.

This match would've been way more interesting than the match between Bryan and Triple H. WWE could've planted the seeds for a potential WWE Championship program between the two after WrestleMania 30. But unfortunately, we never got to see this come to fruition.
