What Will CM Punk Do Next?
It should come as no surprise that CM Punk's departure from WWE has solicited a lot of job offers and opportunities for the former world champion. He's easily considered a "hot" free agent, and there's plenty of options available, should he be interested.
We recently posted quotes from Dana White regarding Punk's WWE departure and the possibility of him fighting for UFC. White said he had not heard anything about it at the time of the interview, but thought Punk fighting in the UFC would be a "risky" venture considering Punk's age.
White didn't rule the possibility out though, and said a UFC contract would depend on whether or not Punk had the necessary fighting skills to pull it off.
Outside of UFC, there are other MMA promotions said to be interested in hiring the former WWE star. We reported this week that actor and MMA star, Jason David Frank, challenged to fight Punk inside the octagon. The World Series of Fighting promotion has agreed to host the fight should CM Punk ever accept.
WSOF Executive Vice President and matchmaker Ali Abded-Aziz recently told Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com that David's manager contacted them about the fight. He also said WSOF would be interested in promoting it as well.
Bellator, another MMA promotion, has also expressed interest in Punk fighting for them.
However, the most interesting job offer yet has to be the one from adult film company, Brazzers. Via Twitter this week, the porn giant offered Punk a position with their company:
CM Punk has remained radio silent since walking out on WWE last week. His last tweet was on Jan. 27 and simply said: "Thanks for all the support. Keep being you guys, it's pretty cool."
Editor's Note: I personally called the 'Universal Straight Edge Society Association of America' to see if there were any rule restrictions toward a straight-edge member doing porn. They said as long as he's clean and sober while committing the act, they see no problem with it.
