Following the press conference, many want to know what CM Punk's net worth is.

What is CM Punk's net worth?

CM Punk spent the early part of his wrestling career working in the world of WWE, where he established a pretty substantial following.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, CM Punk's current net worth is $12 million.

What is CM Punk's salary?

CM Punk, who was born Philip Brooks, has made the majority of his money through professional wrestling, either directly through his salary or through partnerships and brand deals that came out of the fame he accumulated through being a well-known wrestler.

CM Punk, who made his debut for AEW in 2021, was reportedly signed to a three-year deal with the wrestling league with an annual salary of $3 million.

That salary certainly plays a substantial role in building and maintaining CM Punk's overall net worth, but following his recent press conference, it's unclear whether he'll be allowed to finish that contract and take home the amount of money he was originally offered. In fact, the press conference and its aftermath have led some to wonder whether CM Punk will be released completely.

Is CM Punk being released?

Following a press conference in which he railed against many of the higher-ups at AEW and then got into a physical altercation with VPs of the organization backstage, conflicting reports have emerged that CM Punk could be released, fired, or suspended for his conduct.

Much of this speculation is coming from fellow AEW stars, who don't see how CM Punk can continue on in the league unless he makes an attempt at amends.

"Right now AEW talent have not been told anything official. Almost all I've spoken to believe CM Punk will have to go or make major amends to remain with the company. A lot of the talent hasn't arrived where Dynamite broadcasting from yet, but the heat on Punk is unreal," Sean Ross Rapp of Fightful wrote on Twitter.

It seems clear that, whatever CM Punk's punishment might be, it hasn't been officially decided yet. Instead, speculation and rumors have taken over the conversation around the incident. Regardless of what happens with CM Punk, though, it's clear that some sort of punishment is going to be in order. His bad behavior may not end his wrestling career, but it's clearly brought him close to the edge.
