CM Punk Eliminated From Reality Show on MTV

CM Punk and Kofi Kingston

Former WWE Superstar turned MMA fighter CM Punk was eliminated from the second season of MTV’s The Challenge: Champs vs. Pros.

The TV show pits former MTV Stars against professional athletes in a series of challenges with the last two participants receiving $50,000 for their designated charity. Punk’s charity was the Chicago chapter of Pets Are Wonderful Support (P.A.W.S.), a non-profit organisation that advocates the value of the bond between pets and humans.

After the Pros had lost their challenge on this week’s episode, the Pros team captain, Olympic Medalist Gus Kenworthy was sent to the elimination challenge and chose to compete against CM Punk.

Punk claimed he was going to “Crush Gus” in the elimination challenge to stay in the competition, but the Second City Saint lost the challenge and was sent home.

Upon his elimination, Punk received $1,000 for P.A.W.S Chicago.

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.
