Former WWE champion CM Punk surprised everyone in late 2014 when he showed up on a UFC pay-per-view and announced he had signed a contract to fight in the world’s largest MMA promotion. It would be almost two-full years before fight fans actually saw him in the octagon, where it was quickly revealed that it’s never a great idea to start your MMA training in your mid-30s and expect to have a chance. Young Mickey Gall beat up CM Punk quite thoroughly from the opening bell, right up until he slapped on a rear-naked choke three minutes into the fight and ended it.
Every wrestler has a dream match. That one potential opponent they dream of facing off against in the main event of WrestleMania. And even though Seth Rollins has already enjoyed WrestleMania moments with the likes of Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns, and Triple H, he’s still holding out hope for one matchup in particular.
Professional wrestler Alberto El Patron (also known as Alberto Del Rio during his time in WWE) is no longer a suspect in a domestic violence incident that occurred a couple weeks ago in Orlando.
John Cena turned 40 earlier this year and has already moved into a part-time wrestling role with the WWE, as he takes less physically demanding gigs like starring in movies and hosting reality TV shows or award nights.

Buckle up, fans of ridiculous wrestling kayfabe, because Kurt Angle dropped a doozy this week on Raw.
Don’t look now, but Rey Mysterio may soon be on his way back to WWE television. Or GFW. No one really knows, actually!
Last week it was reported that Global Force Wrestling champion (and former WWE champ) Alberto El Patron aka Alberto Del Rio was under investigation for domestic violence after an incident at an Orlando airport. The local police confirmed they were looking into things, and GFW actually released a statement that they has suspended El Patron indefinitely pending the results of the investigation.
Global Force Wrestling (formally TNA Wrestling aka Impact Wrestling, for those not keeping up) has announced the indefinite suspension of their world champion Alberto El Patron following the revelation that he is being investigated for domestic violence after an altercation at an Orlando airport last week.
With the recent election of a TV personality to the prestigious office of the President of the United States, citizens are starting to wonder which other celebrities might make a good elected official. Former pro wrestler and current Hollywood A-lister Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is among the names being floated around, even jokingly. In fact, Johnson actually said he “wouldn’t rule out” a switch into politics, adding that “it’s a real possibility.” He also joked that he wants Tom Hanks as his running mate, so maybe he’s not really that serious about it
