Scorpio Sky Challenges CM Punk

Independent wrestling star Scorpio Sky who appeared as Harold in WWE’s “Anger Management” skits alongside Kane and Daniel Bryan, has challenged CM Punk to an MMA fight. Sky has trained in MMA and has had at least one amateur fight.

I spoke with Sky last year about his foray in to MMA. Here’s what he told me:

MMA is something I have always been interested in. Even back when the UFC was an underground company banned from TV. I remember training when I was 10 in karate, I went to the gym Jason David Frank(the Green Ranger) owned. I used to talk to his brother all the time about fighting and UFC. So once I got back into it in 2009, I fell right back in love with it. I’ve had many opportunites to fight but had to pass on so many due to injury or schedule. I did fight and won via 3rd round referee stoppage. I did pretty well looking back, but could have done much better had I participated in a better training camp. That’s why I have not done it since. I told myself unless I can fully dedicate myself to a training camp I wouldn’t do it. Fighting is still an interest but with my schedule the way it is, I don’t know how realistic it is.

I also asked Sky whether wrestlers turning to MMA or rookies going in to MMA instead of wrestling will become more prevalent:

High profile amatuer wrestlers only have so far they can go in the sport. The highest of the high is winning a olympic gold medal, and the IOC is taking that away in 2020 which is ridiculous. But wrestlers that might not have another way to make a living outside of being a coach would often go into rasslin’, now they can continue their competitive career in MMA, and make money doing it. If the UFC was where it is now back in 1996, who knows we may never have seen a Kurt Angle or Brock Lesnar in the WWE. Honestly, if the UFC was where it is now when I was in High School I might not have become a rassler myself.

Speaking of the CM Punk situation Taz hinted on his podcast that he thinks it may be a work, in that WWE worked with CM Punk, Colt Cabana and UFC, and Punk will eventually end up back in WWE.
