CM Punk Responds To Challenge From Will Ospreay, Seems Interested In Return Match Against NJPW Star


Could CM Punk versus Will Ospreay be a realistic possibility?

According to "The Best in the World," the idea interests him a lot more than many of the fancy big Superstar-level "corporate" names that others might ponder.

During a recent interview with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, the former WWE and UFC star responded to a recent challenged issued to him by the IWGP Heavyweight Champion over in New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Featured below is the reaction Punk gave Chase when the topic of Ospreay's call-out came up during their discussion:

“I don’t want to give people false hope in answering Ospreay, but he’s for sure somebody that I’ve never wrestled before that interests me a lot more than, I guess, the corporate side of professional wrestling nowadays. New and different things are going to interest me more than doing the same old, same old. I always need new goals,” Punk added. “I don’t know, let’s see if he has it at the end of the summer and then ask me the question again.”
