Daniel Hinkles, the chief of "5 star wrestling" wants Punk, 38, in the first-ever 128-man wrestling tournament, scheduled to start on June 10 at the Liverpool's Echo Arena. We'd love to hear back from the man himself.

Hinkles explained that he would let Punk continue to focus on his MMA endeavor but is wants to give the fans of 5 Star Wrestling and the wrestling world a moment to remember. "We want to do this with him".

"When we first announced Wrestling Manager everyone said 'it will never make it to market" then we raised a ton of cash and not only did it release, it topped the charts.

CM Punk left the WWE and the wrestling business in 2014 and doesn't seem to want to return anytime soon. That designation was put in place to claim Roman Reigns sells more than anyone else in the WWE, but he still sells much merchandise less than John Cena, who the WWE moved to the designation of "part-time star" to make the new claim.

CM Punk hasn't wrestled since leaving WWE in 2014, but British wrestling promotion 5 Star Wrestling is hoping to lure him back to the sport with a $1 million offer. He's turned to MMA, making his Octagon debut last September at UFC 203, losing by submission to Mickey Gall.

Promoter Daniel Hinkles has offered the biggest ever United Kingdom wrestling contract to the former WWE world champ and current UFC star to headline his forthcoming 5 Star Wrestling shows. He said that he asked who they wanted to see in the tournament, and CM Punk was on "everybody's wish list".

"This wouldn't have to end that, but wrestling is in his blood and $1 million has to be worth thinking about".

CM Punk also got his chance to fight in the UFC, although that did not work out well. He walked away from WWE in January 2014 after meeting with chairman Vince McMahon. His name still gets chanted at a majority of the televised WWE shows.

Everyone wants the veteran to return to his pro wrestling roots.

He's the biggest fish in the pond of available talent. But maybe he'd come back if the price was right? You can find his podcast, "The Fight Club Chicago", and subscribe on iTunes.
