During an interview with MMA Junkie, former WWE Superstar Matt Riddle talked about a possible MMA return, CM Punk returning to WWE & more. Below are the highlights:

If he’ll ever fight again:

“Yeah, oh yeah, I’ll say this. There’s been a lot of talk. I’ve been talking to a couple of promotions. I don’t want to get into it until it’s official, but I think 2024 is a very big possibility that I get back in the ring or cage and fight again. Pretty soon.

Yeah, I feel like, and maybe this is a bad theory or a bad idea, I feel like you gotta get like beat up to leave. I feel like I left the UFC on a four-fight win streak, then won another fight in Titan FC and kinda just left, went to pro wrestling, did good, still doing it.

Pro wrestling’s awesome but I still wanna get beat up. I wanna have my exit. But we’ll see. Maybe somebody beats me up. Maybe I keep winning. Who knows?”

If he could return to the UFC, after being fired 10 years ago:

“Never say never, right? If the opportunity is right. I don’t really hold a grudge. I talk a lot of sh*t. Sorry, I talk a lot of trash, but that’s about it. So if there’s business to be had, I’ll get business done. For me, there’s no things that really needs mending.

[Dana White] had his decision. I had mine. He went his way, I went my way, and I had great success. For me, there’s no problem. It’s just a matter of he’d want me to work for him again.”

On CM Punk returning to WWE:

“I’m not surprised because the one thing WWE likes is money, and CM Punk is money just like he was money in mixed-martial-arts. So, you can’t argue with a man that’s money. But, yeah, then that’s just like the UFC. I know if I fight, I’ll sell tickets.”
