CM Punk Is As Good At Frying Turkeys As He Is At MMA


Former pro wrestler and Marvel comics writer CM Punk is a two-time WWE champion who left the sport in 2014 to pursue mixed martial arts, but his UFC debut didn't go so well:

Now, Punk is taking a stab at offering Thanksgiving cooking advice on Twitter, and, well, it's going about the same:

As everyone knows, putting a frozen turkey into a deep fryer could result in an explosion, so don't do that. As for Punk, if he survives the holiday, he'll take another stab at an MMA fight, according to an interview on The MMA Hour, transcribed via Fox Sports:

"That's up to Dana," Punk said. "I had a conversation with him. I told him, 'hey, if you want to cut me, I get it. But I'm fighting, whether it's for you or somebody else.' Now, I don't have an agent, I don't have a manager — I'm like Bill Murray with a lot less money, and not as funny or as famous.

"But I told him I want to fight again. We're back at it, we're back to the drawing board. So, it's up to him. He floated me an idea and we're kind going back and forth on right now. I'm at the point where I want to get something on paper, so you might hear an announcement in the coming weeks."

The fight could happen as soon as January or February, which would give Punk plenty of time to recover from minor Turkey burns:

"If it was up to me — I'm trying to think in terms of food schedule. I can just pig out on Thanksgiving and skip Christmas, so maybe January or February." Punk said. "It all depends on who it is, where it is. I really do [want to get back in there]."

Enjoy your Thanksgiving, fight fans, and please employ proper cooking techniques when preparing your turkey.


About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
