Will Punk go All In?

CM Punk has had quite an interesting week. On Tuesday he and Colt Cabana were found not liable in a case filed against the duo by Dr. Chris Amann. Then on Saturday, Punk stepped back into the octagon for his second fight with UFC. He lost to Mike Jackson by decision which has lead to plenty of questions already about Punk's future. 

“No, it should be a wrap,” Dana White said. “The guy’s 39 years old. We gave him two shots, and he had a lot of heart tonight, and I think he should call it a wrap.”

Punk had this to say after the fight Saturday. "You win some, you lose some! I’m 1-1 this week and I’ll take it! Thanks to my team, my family, my friends, and THE FANS! Wouldn’t be here without any of you. Respect to @TheTruthJackson, thanks for the fight! You only live once, and… I’M ALIVE!"

When asked about returning to pro wrestling prior to the fight, Punk said: "I'm done." You can read the full article here

Personally, I'm of the belief that Punk will return to the ring. As we've seen with many Superstars from the past, never say never. I don't see him signing with WWE anytime soon. But I believe he'll become an attraction on the indy circuit and will likely be a part of the big All In event over Labor Day weekend in Chicago. 

I've been up and down on CM Punk. I wasn't crazy about his original run in WWE. It wasn't until the Straight Edge Society and eventually alliance with Paul Heyman that I truly embraced Punk. Then when he left, I thought he came off whiny, however, I understand his concerns and respect what he's done in wrestling. I also applaud him for going after his dreams and getting into the cage in the MMA world. 

It's not been an easy ride for Punk. I still think he has something to contribute to the professional wrestling world. I know he's already going to be at the Pro Wrestling Tees store in Chicago prior to All In. I won't be surprised to see him as a part of the show in some capacity.
