There have long been expectations, rumours, and discussions of a wrestling comeback since leaving the WWE in January 2014. Before making his triumphant wrestling comeback in August 2021 with the recently established AEW, Punk took a break from the business to pursue a brief and ultimately unsuccessful career in the UFC.
AEW was a huge success for him at first, but after the contentious media scrum following his victory over Jon Moxley at All Out, he was fired from the organisation. Punk verbally attacked AEW EVPs Adam Page, the Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega during the press conference. Later, a fight broke out physically behind the scenes.
CM Punk’s salary
CM. Punk has amassed millions of dollars through his professional wrestling and mixed martial arts activities. One of the most paid superstars in ECW from 2006 to 2008 was CM Punk. He had an annual salary of $200k and $300k.
CM Punk earned $100,000 in 2011, $1.3 million in 2012–13, and $1.7 million in 2013–14 from WWE. He received almost $200,000 for becoming the WWE 2K13 video game’s cover star.
The ‘Best in The World’ DVD generated thousands of dollars in sales from enthusiasts. According to rumours, CM Punk would have received $1.3 million to $1.8 million in 2016 and $2 million in 2017 if he hadn’t quit the WWE.
Though his MMA career in the UFC was unsuccessful, CM Punk still made millions of dollars. The profits during CM Punk’s time with the wrestling promotion AEW, where he was one of their top babyfaces, are still unclear.
CM Punk’s contract details with AEW
He has been given a lucrative deal and was working for AEW until his termination. CM Punk has reportedly signed a three-year, $3 million contract with AEW, according to FightFans.
What is CM Punk’s net worth in 2023?
The projected value of CM Punk’s net worth is $12 million, according to Inside the Ropes Wrestling. Tragically, CM Punk’s MMA career hasn’t been as successful as his professional wrestling one.
