Every Hollywood Movie of AEW Superstar CM Punk

Published 08/23/2021, 12:03 PM EDT


CM Punk has over the years dabbled in many fields, from wrestling to UFC to commentary to acting. While he is most well known for his contribution in the ring, selling out arenas and main eventing PPVs. His stint in UFC, although critically shunned, was a definite cash grab. Punk is also a huge comic book buff and has shared his intention of writing them one day.

Recently, Batista, who has chalked out a pretty impressive body of work in Hollywood, replied to a fan saying Punk would be the perfect fit in acting. Punk, although hasn’t been on the mainstream acting landscape, has dabbled in the profession. Punk at the moment has two releases to his name- Rabid and The Girl on the Third Floor; both of which are in the supernatural genre of films.

Punk also starred in a movie called Jakob’s Wife, which released in March 2021.

CM Punk and acting a good fit?

It is a no brainier that the Voice of the Voiceless is a draw for wrestling, but it certainly is believable that Punk also has decent traction in the mainstream. While many of the top draw fighters have to make a name for themselves before being given a PPV match, Punk’s arrival in UFC was one that drew a lot of eyes to the product. While the exact figures stand undisclosed, Punk made approximately $1.5 million per fight.

As the Rock states often, it is simple maths. More people always equal more money. While he made moolah in the UFC, his acting career thus far has been rather underwhelming. His films received positive reviews from critics, although they didn’t kill it at the box office. However, a silver lining is the backing he has for being a brilliant speaker and his ability to connect with the audience.

Wrestling more than anything is about telling a story and Punk, without a doubt, is a master. This creates a splendid chance of him succeeding in the wrestling business. Maybe not for the high octane roles as Cena or The Rock, but would surely fit the mould, like a Batista. We will see the All Elite star next with Stephen Amell in “HEELZ”.
