British Wrestling Promoter Daniel Hinkles, owner and Founder of 5 Star Wrestling has sent shockwaves throughout the British wrestling world today by announcing that he’s offering CM Punk a cool $1 million to join the upcoming of 5 Star Wrestling Tour.

The tour, which will kick off on June 20 at Liverpool’s Echo Arena will witness the world’s first 128-man wrestling tournament.

Hinkles said: “We’ve been trying to contact CM Punk on and off 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 but the opportunity has never been this big.

“We want to offer CM Punk $1 million dollars (£770,000) 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.”

CM Punk sensationally quit WWE in January 2014 at the height of his career following a bitter fallout with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, Triple H, and the company’s medical team.

Not long after his pro-wrestling departure he joined the world of MMA and signed a multi-fight contract with Ultimate Fighting Championship.

He made his Octagon debut until September 10, 2016, where he lost to Mickey Gall after just 2 minutes and 14 seconds via a rear naked choke.

He has not returned to the Octagon since.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
