When we heard that retired WWE wrestler CM Punk was making a big career move, we assumed he would try another sport like hockey. He’s a huge Chicago Blackhawks fan. We imagined him pivoting like when Michael Jordan quit basketball and then tried baseball. Or when Bo Jackson knew everything about every sport. But we were wrong. CM Punk is going to sit down and try living a sedentary life.
The 36-year-old guy known as “The Best in the World” is going to write his first script for Marvel’s “Thor” franchise. He said: “I’m definitely prepared to fall flat on my face, I think,” said CM Punk. “If anything, [wrestling] got me used to understanding that failure is part of a process, and the only real failure is if you don’t try.”
