Matt Riddle: I'm Not Surprised CM Punk Returned To WWE; They Like Money, CM Punk Is Money

Matt Riddle comments on CM Punk's return to WWE.

Riddle and Punk have never crossed paths as Punk got into the UFC after Riddle had been released, and Punk returned to WWE after Riddle had been released. Riddle and UFC had a very public falling out with Dana White calling him a "fucking moron" after he failed a second drug test for cannabis. Punk and WWE had very public falling out in 2014, but fences were mended enough for him to return.

Speaking to MMA Junkie, Riddle was asked about Punk's return.

"I'm not surprised because WWE, they like money and CM Punk is money, just like he was money in Mixed Martial Arts. You can't argue with a man that is money. That's like with UFC. I know if I fight, I'll sell tickets. It's just if they want it," he said.

Elsewhere during the interview, Riddle said there is a big possibility he fights again in 2024. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
