5 Star Wrestling Offer CM Punk $1million to make UK Wrestling Return
The Biggest Ever UK Wrestling Contract Is On Offer To Compete In 128-Man

As reported in today’s Fighting Talk column in The Daily Star, 5 Star
Wrestling have decided to make the most lucrative contract offer in British
wrestling history to the former WWE World Champion, CM Punk.
The creator of 5 Star Wrestling, Daniel Hinkles spoke to Fighting Talk editor
Patrick Lennon this week to publicly make the $1million offer to Punk to
compete in the world’s first 128-man wrestling tournament that will begin
on June 10th in Liverpool’s Echo Arena and continue around the country,
culminating in a year ending show at Manchester Arena on December 30th.
Hinkles was quoted as saying “I’ve been trying to contact CM Punk for well
over a year. We wanted him on the first show we did in Edinburgh in 2015.
I’ve tried going through friends in the industry, I’ve gone through his
website and sent dozens of emails.

We want to offer CM Punk $1 million dollars to come and join the 5 Star
Wrestling tour starting June 10th.

It’s a genuine offer. We’d love to hear back from the man himself. We
want to do this with him.

Even if it’s a no, we want to know he’s at least heard the offer. It
doesn’t get more credible than CM Punk. We all know that if he ever comes
back to wrestling it will be one of those all time, epic moments – I want
that to be with 5 Star Wrestling.

We are hugely ambitious. Starting June 10th we will have a weekly show airing
LIVE, from the UK’s biggest indoor arena’s, on Saturday’s at 8pm. We
want to fill the show with the biggest stars and the best wrestlers from this
country and from all around the world. When we ask the fans who they want to
see, CM Punk’s name is on everybody’s wish list and we’re willing to
spend big to make it happen.
I know he is seemingly focused on MMA at the moment and this wouldn’t have
to end that, but wrestling is in his blood and $1 million has to be worth
thinking about.”
CM Punk has not wrestled since the 2014 WWE Royal Rumble and his return to
the ring would be seen as one of the most iconic moments in modern wrestling
