Mickey Gall is officially CM Punk's first UFC opponent after he won his fight against Michael Jackson . Gall vs. Punk is speculated to take place at UFC 199 in June. In an interview this week Punk had the following to say on Gall: "To me, Mickey Gall is a means to an end. He's humble, he's respectful, and he's smart. he called me out when he knew he had Dana (White's) ear. He knew what he had to do, he said my name, so he did the right thing. Honestly, I'm looking forward to meeting him, he seems like a nice kid" It's on!!!!! @CMPunk vs @MickeyGall — Dana White (@danawhite) February 7, 2016

 CM Punk was recently interviewed for UFC Fight Pass about his potential opponent Mickey Gall. Gall was seen calling out Punk on the second episode of Dana White’s reality show Lookin For A Fight.

    “To me, Mickey Gall is the means to an end. I gotta fight somebody,” Punk said of his possible challenger. “He’s humble, he’s respectful, and he’s smart — He called me out when he knew he had Dana’s ear.”

Gall is set to fight Michael Jackson at UFC Fight Night 82 this Saturday. If Gall is victorious, he’ll fight CM Punk in Punk’s debut fight at UFC 199 or UFC 200. You can watch the episode of Lookin’ For A Fight featuring Gall

CM Punk recently spoke to Yahoo Sports about his new career as an MMA fighter. and revealed some advice he got from fellow former WWE champ and MMA enthusiast Batista. Punk, who has yet to make his octagon debut, currently has an 8-fight deal with the UFC.
“Part of my reason for most of the decisions I make in life is I don’t want to have regrets,” Punk said. “I talked to Dave Bautista [an ex-WWE wrestler who has one pro MMA fight] and he’s a great guy to talk to about this kind of stuff because he did the same thing. He said, ‘You’ve got to do it. You’ve got to chase your dream. You’re going to wake up one day and realize that you were presented an opportunity and you could have done it, but didn’t.’ So it’s a big reason.”
Back in 2012, Punk had positive things to say about Batista leaving WWE to enter the world of competitive MMA:
“It was something that he wanted to do. He loves it so he put his mind to it and did it, and I think that amazing,” Punk told The MMA Hour. “I don’t think anybody can criticize that. He has no delusions of grandeur. He’s not trying to get a big, fat UFC contract. He’s not trying to coast on his name from the WWE. He’s just fighting because he wanted to experience it.”

CM Punk also tackled the issue of backlash from MMA fans in his Yahoo Sports interview this week. Punk says he loves the sport of MMA, and that fans should be more patient with him while he trains for his delayed UFC debut.
“The people who don’t like the UFC and want to see it fail are always going to find the negatives,” he said. “You hear them. They say, ‘Oh, they didn’t do this,’ or ‘They’re not doing this right.’ The people who like it are going to buy the pay-per-view, and I want to respect them and the other fighters and this sport by being as prepared as I can. But there’s always going to be people who don’t like it or who have a problem with it.”
“I love the sport, and I have for a long time,” he added. “I’d stay up late and watch the Pride New Year’s Eve shows. I watch all the UFC pay-per-views. I’m a fan. I love this stuff. Literally, I looked at it, and I said, ‘That’s something I want to do.’”
Punk is expected to make his UFC debut at either UFC 199 or UFC 200.

Mikey Gall will fight Mike Jackson at UFC 196, and if he wins, he will face CM Punk. Gall recently spoke with The Sun about Punk’s transition from pro wrestling to MMA. 

 “I think it’s a ballsy move. I respect him, he’s made himself a superstar in professional wrestling,” Gall said. “He’s obviously a special guy. But I think he’s coming into MMA and against any MMA fighter he’s gonna be in trouble—but especially in trouble with me. I’m so excited man.” “I’m gonna prepare for him like he’s the best fighter in the world, I’m gonna train my butt off, that’s how I always go into every fight. I think I’m gonna hit him and I’m gonna hurt him early.” 

 Gall has a record of 1-0, and calls out CM Punk on an upcoming episode of Dana White’s YouTube series Looking For A Fight. If Gall is victorious at UFC 196, his next opponent will be Punk at either UFC 199 or UFC 200.

Kurt Angle recently spoke to about CM Punk’s upcoming UFC debut in which he expected to fight Mickey Gall at UFC 199 in June. “I wouldn’t say he is a young 37, I think that he’s a beat-up 37, but he has been able to take the year off – that’s going to help,” Angle said. “I just don’t know how good he is. I know he’s training, but I don’t know how good he is as a fighter. He’s a great pro-wrestler, but fighting is a different story.” Angle himself tried to make the switch from pro-wrestling to UFC but didn’t pass the intense physical exam that is required by all fighters before they can be signed.

Paul Heyman recently made an appearance on SI Media podcast, one of the key highlights was him being asked about CM Punk possibly returning to WWE:
“As of right now, ain’t no way he’s ever going back. I don’t know if I can make that same statement in the future. I know his mindset is there’s absolutely no way. As for his mindset where he is in his journey, I think every moment he takes a breath is one moment closer to his debut. I think the only thing that he sees in his mind right now, 24/7 he is envisioning the moment they lock that Octagon and the referee says ‘fight’.”

CM Punk is in Las Vegas for UFC and during an interview session SevereMMA he said “I f**king told you so” to WWE regarding the rise of a number of former Ring of Honor talents that are making it big in WWE.
Punk claims he told WWE this many years ago and they didn’t listen to him.
“I think it’s funny now when you look at the pro wrestling landscape, all the guys that they’re hiring, all the guys that they’re putting on television. I can honestly say I don’t know if that happens if a guy like me and a guy like (Samoa) Joe don’t take a chance. Everybody’s talented in their own right but everything that I was made fun of and vilified for by management is what they’re looking for in guys and I wear that as a badge of honor.”

A Twitter feud has erupted between former WWE Superstar CM Punk and Hulk Hogan after Punk's Chicago Blackhawks team lost out on the NHL Stanley Cup against Hogan's Tampa Bay Lightning.
Punk told Hogan to "shut the f**k up" and threatened to "wreck" him."

Former WWE Champion CM Punk began training for his MMA debut yesterday according PWInsider.
The former longest reigning WWE Champion in WWE history was training with Duke Roufus coached Roufusport Team and going forward will receive the very best training with the likes of UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis, One FC Welterweight Champion Ben Askren, Matt Mitrione, Sergio Pettis, Ben Rothwell.
Punk is expected to make his highly anticipated MMA debut in the second half of 2015.

The Associated Press published quotes from CM Punk, in which he expresses his frustrations on headlining live events but not major pay-per views.
"Imagine if UFC took Conor McGregor and they just put him on Fight Pass prelims, and they wouldn't let him main event the big PPV or a big show," Punk said. "That's how I felt. I was the main event on all the house shows, I was the only guy that was touring live every single day. When it came time for the PPV main event, oh, someone else is coming in."
Punk also reveals that he would be introduced as Phil "CM Punk" Brooks when he fights for the UFC.
"I've come this far with CM Punk. That's what people know," Punk said. "I'm trying to stick with that. I'm not shying away from it. I'm not ashamed of it."

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley posted the following on his official Facebook page:

I've been asked quite a bit over the past several days for my opinion on CM Punk's decision to sign with UFC. I applaud it. While I have no idea how Punk will fare with top level MMA competitors, I do know that no one will out-train him or out-work him, and that, whether he wins or loses, succeeds or fails, he's likely to be responsible for a few incredible PPV buy-rates - which had been a cause of concern for him since the dawning of the #WWENetwork...which, last time I checked was only $9.99 a month.

Just as importantly, #CMPunk won't end up sitting on his couch 10 years from now, muttering the two dirtiest words in the English language: "what if"?"

The latest wrestling superstar to comment on CM Punk’s UFC signing is Matt Hardy – and the former member of the Hardy Boyz, one of the most exciting tag teams of the Attitude Era, brings up an excellent point on Chair Shot Reality in comparing CM Punk’s move to the UFC with Brock Lesnar trying out for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.

When it comes to Punk and Lesnar, two pro wrestling stars who later signed with the UFC, Hardy suggests the comparison to make isn’t with their respective MMA moves, but their moves to areas where they had no background: MMA for Punk, and pro football for Brock Lesnar. Lesnar, of course, tried out for the NFL in 2004 almost immediately after leaving the WWE. He had a strong showing at the NFL Combine (a week-long scouting showcase held in February), and made the Minnesota Vikings practice team. After an eight-week training camp, he came close to making the team but was cut at the end of camp, with an offer to play on the Viking’s European franchise in NFL Europa, which he declined to be closer to his family.
Lesnar had made the move with absolutely no collegiate football experience – he never even had an offer to play college ball. That’s quite similar to Punk, who has no belt in any martial arts discipline, and has no college amateur wrestling background.

The key point here is – did Lesnar trying out for the NFL hurt his value, even though he didn’t make it? In general, most fans were pretty impressed that Lesnar made it as far as he did with no background in the sport, and he went on to be a huge draw in the next career he conquered – MMA.

However, Hardy does state that if Punk is exposed in a number of real fights, it may hurt him in the long run.
And really, does Punk have a third career option to fall back on the way Brock Lesnar did?

Punk was asked about his wife AJ Lee continuing to work for WWE when he “called out” WWE and their medical staff. Punk said his intent wasn’t to call anyone out and he was just telling his story. Punk said he’s had many conversations with AJ about her wanting to work for WWE and if she does want to work there, “more power to her.” Punk said their relationship is stronger for having separate careers.

WWE Superstar "Mr. Money In The Bank" Seth Rollins recently appeared on The "This Is Awesome" Wrestling Show and talked about C.M. Punk's departure from WWE:
Thoughts on CM Punk leaving WWE:
Good for him. Kudos to Punk for finding himself something to do after WWE. He's made a big splash over the last few weeks between his podcasts and signing with UFC. I wish him the best of luck. I really hope that he has as much success there as he has here. I think it will be very interesting for him to try something new. He's only been a pro wrestler since he was 18 years old. For him, at his age, to step out of his comfort zone and try something new is pretty admirable and I'm looking forward to seeing how he does.

The way CM Punk left WWE:
I think it could have handled better, probably, on both sides. And I think down the road, people involved will say the same thing. But as much as I don't necessary agree with the way he left, I think I understand, mentally, where he was. This business can take a toll on you. You travel a lot. You get beat up a lot. There's a lot of frustration that's involved and mentally, over time, that can wear on you. It can put you in place where you're a different person. And when you're not happy with who you are and the person you want to be, you gotta take a step back. You gotta look at things outside the bubble a little bit. I think that's what he did and I think he realized that he needed to take a step back and see what was going on. And if he didn't like it, then he can move on. I think they agreed to disagree. Like I said, could have been handled differently from a public relations standpoint on both sides. I think once the dust settles, everything will feel itself out and it should be alright.

If the locker room would welcome CM Punk back to WWE:
I don't see why not. He's a self-admitted jerk, first of all. And if you listen to his podcast, he didn't say that he was in a great mood the last few months that he was there. He admitted how grumpy he was and how much of a jerk he was, even more than he already is. I think we would welcome him back. I'm not to hold too much grudges. I think everyone deserves a second chance; an opportunity to redeem themselves. I would welcome him back. I'm sure he would face some resentment, as far as the locker room is concerned. But guys get over that stuff pretty quick. I think if it was best for business, yeah, I would be open to it for sure.

CM Punk Finally Discusses His WWE Exit, His Great Idea About Shield, Ryback & More

CM Punk sat down with his long term friend and fellow wrestler Colt Cabana this week to talk about why he left the WWE and came out with some pretty interesting revelations. The Straight edge Superstar took a great amount of shots against Vince McMahon and how WWE is run in the backstage.

One of the other biggest take away from the interview was: Shield was CM Punk’s Idea. WWE wanted to have a stable with Daniel Bryan, Big Show, CM Punk and one guy from NXT, but Punk came up with the idea of Shield.

 He actually wanted Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Chris Hero to form the stable but Triple H shot down Hero and added Roman Reigns into the mix. Triple H then went out saying that the Shield was his idea. Punk was legitimately pissed off by the company’s nature of taking someone else’s idea and branding it as their own and this was one of the reasons why he walked out of the company in the first place.

A professional wrestler turned comic book writer? To some people, that might sound utterly ridiculous. Watching wrestlers try their hand at acting is bad enough. Dwayne Johnson and Dave Bautista have successfully made the rare leap from the ring to Hollywood stardom; most grapplers embarrass themselves trying. But writing superhero stories? That's an entirely different type of challenge. Thankfully, if you're familiar with the name CM Punk, you know he's more than qualified for the task of conjuring up a killer comic plot line. And that's exactly what he'll be doing for Marvel.

 Today the company announced that Punk (whose real name is Phil Brooks) is handling writing duties for February’s Thor Annual #1. He's been paired up with Rob Guillory, a friend and artist who's also new to Marvel, to produce "a story about young Thor." Punk seems to appreciate the fact that he's been given control over one of Marvel's "heavy hitters," and he's dead set on making the most of this writing gig.

"I think we’re kind of under the radar, and there’s not really a whole lot of pressure on us to deliver some sort of a magnum opus as a 10-page backup story in an annual, so I think we have a lot of freedom that could be really fun," he told Marvel in an interview. Punk said he's leaning towards choosing the "Marvel Model" for his first time out, where the writer and artist collaborate on a story, but specific dialog isn't added until after the comic's been illustrated. As for what's to come in the story, Punk gave an outline of sorts:

So the idea was, let’s do a story about young Thor as kind of a brash, bratty teenager who’s like, "I’m totally worthy of this hammer. My dad’s full of [expletive]. I don’t know why I’m not ‘worthy’ of the hammer. Look at all this cool stuff I did." And it’s more or less like a drinking story. He’s gonna be sitting around with a few choice characters from the Marvel Universe, and they’re all gonna be drinking, and Thor’s gonna basically be complaining about essentially why his dad won’t give him the keys to the car.

It's been about 10 months since Punk, one of the more gifted performers to rise up through WWE's ranks in the last decade, abruptly walked out on the company. He held Vince McMahon's top title for more than a year, but that's nothing compared to CM Punk's lifelong affinity for comic books. The tattoo of a G.I. Joe Cobra sigil on his right shoulder is just one clue pointing to Punk's passion. When he was still entertaining wrestling fans, Punk would shout "it's clobberin' time" as he approached the ring — borrowing The Thing's pre-brawl catchphrase, and he'd often tweet about the trade paperbacks that served as reading material between his WWE appearances. ("I travel so much that single issue comic books never really held up," he explained in the Marvel interview.)

But now, outside of intermittent appearances for Chris Hardwick's Nerdist and one-off gigs, Punk has largely disappeared from the public eye — a change of pace he seems to be enjoying. Thankfully for fans eager to reconnect, he's got bigger ambitions for the future: Punk said his dream is to write a story for The Punisher that's been kicking around in his head for years. "So until they let me do that, you’re gonna get all kinds of other stories about all kinds of other characters until they satisfy this need I have to write Frank Castle."

The WWE anti-hero lineage continues with Dean Ambrose.
In the company's history there have been numerous examples of clean-cut, righteous and traditional hero characters. Ambrose is not one of them. He instead shares kinship with men like Roddy Piper, Steve Austin and CM Punk, departures from good-guy norms.
WWE is still home to straight-laced heroes, John Cena being the most obvious example, but its recent history has seen a number of edgier men with looser moral codes.
Ambrose follows the tradition that Punk most recently carried: You root for him, you cheer for him, but he's not to be trusted.
He's more Han Solo than Luke Skywalker, more Roddy Piper than Ricky Steamboat.

Roddy Piper

The similarities between Ambrose and Piper are plentiful, and with good reason. Men as wild-eyed and unpredictable as those two are rarities.
Like Piper, Ambrose's rage overtakes him. Once a foe has wronged him, he transforms into a rabid dog
One could also easily imagine Ambrose letting his fury lead him to ignoring rules and resorting to tactics normally reserved for heels. In the above video, Piper kisses DiBiase's manager Sherri Martel and then later flips her onto the mat. During a round of crutch-swinging, he even nails the referee.
Ambrose has yet to toss a woman around or clobber a referee with a piece of medical equipment, but imagining him doing so requires no effort.
He's shown himself to be as unstable and unpredictable as Hot Rod.
Listening to him rant about the Money in the Bank briefcase and Triple H, one can't help but flash back to Piper. He cackles and rambles, and his volume shoots up and down.
Those were among Piper's trademarks. Ambrose hasn't been as loud and feverish as Piper, but the two share a similar unhinged quality.

Steve Austin

Austin wasn't one to wait around for an opportunity for vengeance. Most baby faces would limit their pursuit of foes to the ring, following the rules. Not Austin.
His feuds often saw him go far beyond the ropes, just as we've seen from Ambrose.
It's hard to picture Cena lying in wait inside a present or Aisle 5. Ambrose and Austin, though, are harder to control. Anger them and expect to become prey anywhere, anytime. 
There's a fearlessness that bonds these two men as well. Some wrestlers may hesitate to act on their impulses to attack if they know it will put their jobs at risk. The threat of being fired can keep the sane man away, but not the one who feels as if he has nothing to lose.
Austin operated that way throughout much of his career. Ambrose is following suit.
The Texas Rattlesnake went as far as to knock the boss on his back. With security, police and the head of WWE, Vince McMahon, telling him to go one way, Austin would go the other, regardless of the consequences. Getting arrested was not a big enough deterrent to stop him.
Austin wasn't insane like Ambrose is, just an ass-kicker who disregarded the rules. He comes off as more in control, more calculating. Ambrose is more of a Tasmanian devil tossed into an enclosed space.
Opportunities are sure to come, but Ambrose hasn't yet destroyed or hijacked property like Austin did. A car filled with cement and a stolen Zamboni are among the things on Austin's wrap sheet. Ambrose's criminal resume is still in the works.
But if anyone is a safe bet to follow Austin's lead in vehicle vandalism, it's Ambrose.

CM Punk

Both Ambrose and Punk brought most of their gimmicks with them from the Indies. Punk's early days saw him developing the edgy, defiant persona that he eventually displayed on WWE programming.

The result is that they both entered the WWE loaded with experience but also with a ready-made fan base. That helped them get over with fans as baby faces even when they borrowed the aggression and attitude more associated with heels.

Ambrose and Punk may not have connected with fans in a different era. There is something about their irreverence, belligerence and disregard for authority that appeals to today's fans, that fits a less black-and-white wrestling landscape.
Punk drew his own comparisons to Austin and others, but he was something else entirely, a deviation from the status quo.
Like Punk, Ambrose is going to have WWE walk outside its comfort zone. The company can't just follow the booking handbook to present him. Creativity will be required.
That was Punk's story as well. He had to be a part of stories that suited him, fresh, innovative angles where he demanded ice cream bars in his contract or ranted against the company with a live mic in hand.
To best use him, officials would be wise to both look backward and forward. Seeing what worked for Punk, Piper and Austin would be beneficial for Ambrose.
In the end, though, WWE has to cut away a new path for him. Ambrose is his own man, a new species cobbled together from pre-existing ones.
