Punk has not wrestled in a match since his exit from WWE back in 2014 after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Since leaving WWE, Punk signed with UFC to become a mixed martial artist, but lost his two fights with the promotion, both defeats to Mickey Gall and Mike Jackson. Punk has also done commentary for Cage Fury Fighting Championships on UFC Fight Pass.
