Triller Fight Club broadcaster Ray Flores has said that the company would “definitely be open” to hosting a potential CM Punk fight.
“I think if CM Punk wants to do it, I think that Triller would absolutely be open to it because he’s still a big name,” Flores noted. “I mean now the fans are coming back. You go to arenas all over the world and you still here chants of CM Punk in different wrestling arenas all over.”
However, Flores did acknowledge that it would take a “perfect storm” with all of the stars aligning to make a fight happen.
“So if he wants to come back and he’s willing to go in there and train, then I think he absolutely can make the connection, and they’ll definitely be open to it. Whether or not it will happen, it’s kind of like the perfect storm. All the stars need to align for him to get in there, but if he wants to and he’s willing to put in the time in the gym, then why not? I mean, he’s one of those guys that still now after how long he’s been away from sports entertainment and combat sports, he still a big name in combat sports.”
Triller have earned plaudits in recent times for their handling of the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren fight. Looking ahead, Flores talked up the company’s ability to put on events that fans might not get to see elsewhere.
“Also too, you’re going to get high-level match-ups but then you’re also going to get fun, unique fights and then you’re going to get entertainment,” Flores said. “‘Okay, I’m going to come and see a hip-hop artist, and then I’m going to see a guy, a professional boxing trainer who’s a fighter fight, a Reggaetón artist. I mean, it’s kind of all these different things are happening at once, and then you’re getting Frank Mir against Steve Cunningham. Those are the kind of things that you’re like, ‘Is this really happening right now?’ But that’s what you get on Triller.”
Meanwhile, in a recent interview CM Punk said that wrestling “isn’t his world anymore.” Although, during the same conversation, Punk also refused to rule out a return to the ring.
After leaving WWE, Punk eventually signed for UFC, but has lost both of his contests to date. CM Punk hasn’t appeared inside the octagon since June 2018.
