Amid WWE’s uncertain stance on CM Punk, given their pending merger with UFC, there’s another wrestling promotion eager to secure his services – IMPACT Wrestling.
According to insights from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, IMPACT Wrestling is buzzing with excitement about the potential collaboration with CM Punk. Currently, there’s no confirmation of any discussions between the two parties, nor is it clear whether Punk has intentions of returning to the world of professional wrestling. Furthermore, the viability of IMPACT as a long-term option for Punk remains uncertain.

Notably, Punk has a history with IMPACT, having performed for TNA Wrestling in 2003 and 2004 as a part of Raven’s ‘The Gathering’ stable. Earlier this year, Punk was backstage at IMPACT’s Spring Slugfest tapings in Chicago. During his visit, he interacted with talent and even engaged in a game of UNO. Reports suggest that Punk was pleasant, in high spirits, and seemed genuinely pleased to be a part of the event.
Punk’s recent departure from All Elite Wrestling (AEW) adds an intriguing twist to the situation. He was released by Tony Khan on September 2nd following an investigation into an altercation Punk had with Jack Perry during All In. Khan cited concerns for his safety as the reason behind the decision, following recommendations from AEW’s disciplinary committee and external legal advisors.
As for New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW), it appears that Punk’s journey won’t lead him there. PWInsider suggests that NJPW might not express interest in Punk due to their established relationship with AEW, further complicating the potential destinations for the enigmatic CM Punk.
