CM Punk has made a successful return to professional wrestling with his run in AEW. The former WWE and UFC star was away from professional wrestling for a long time due to his venture into MMA but managed to make a huge impact when he eventually returned.

Recently speaking to ESPN Sports Nation, CM Punk gave his opinion on the current hype surrounding Jake Paul and Logan Paul. Punk noted that what they are doing is similar to professional wrestling.

“I think everything’s entertainment. I think some people conflate being a fighter with being an entertainer, but when it makes dollars, it makes sense. And what the Paul brothers are doing, I think for the lack of a better term, it’s old school pro wrestling, right?,” he said (h/t Cageside Seats).

He further went on to add that he knows what it takes to step in the ring as he has also done something similar.

“This is stuff — you could say they’re crossing over, but there’s so many similarities between the two businesses. They command attention. People want to see them get knocked out, they know this, but they’re putting themselves out there. They’re putting themselves on the line. I’ll never criticize in a negative way or fashion anybody who makes the walk, anybody who trains their ass off. Because I did it and I know what it takes. And you put yourself out there, you put yourself on the line,” he added.

When concluding, Punk laid out examples of Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey.

“A lot of the times — a lot of the sacrifice goes unnoticed. But it’s what it is. When [Floyd] Mayweather crossed over and did a match at WrestleMania, I’m sure we’re eventually going to see [Conor] McGregor come over... [Ronda] Rousey was excellent when she came over. The bottom line is making money. If you’re making money, you’re technically not really doing anything wrong,” he concluded.
