CM Punk offered $1 million to return to pro wrestling

There will be dates across the country, beginning at Liverpool's Echo Arena on June 10 and culminating in a year ending show at Manchester Arena on December 30.
Punk has expressed no real interest to return to wrestling, other than some idle comments about wanting to face Samoa Joe again in ROH (which obviously can't happen now that Joe has signed to WWE).
Punk became one of WWE's top stars, and wrestling fans around the world loved to cheer him on when he made his way down to the ring, but unfortunately his relationship with WWE went south and he's no longer a wrestler.
The current 5 Star champion is John Morrison (AKA Johnny Mundo) and other global stars that have recently competed under their banner include Rey Mysterio, AJ Styles, Colt Cabana, Jay Lethal, Moose, Grado, Carlito, Magnus, Marty Scurll, Joe Coffey, Zack Gibson, Will Ospreay and Drew Galloway. Tournaments usually are not that big. CM Punk left wrestling behind about three years ago and hasn't seemed to look back since. "We wanted him on the first show we did in Edinburgh in 2015".
"I've gone through his website and sent dozens of emails but the opportunity has never been this big".
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. It's a genuine offer. He said that his company wants to work with him.
Hinkles has done his best to get in touch with Punk through normal channels, but now it's time to activate the nuclear option: the clickbait media. "We all know that if he ever comes back to wrestling it will be one of those epic moments - I want that to be with 5 Star Wrestling, right here in the UK".
Who will be crowned champ in what is billed as "the biggest tournament in wrestling history"?
