One of pro wrestling’s most controversial figures is venturing back to his old stomping grounds for at least a day. Former WWE champion CM Punk will be at Starrcast III on Saturday, Aug. 31 at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Ill,, right outside of Chicago.SI.com revealed Punk will be doing a one-on-one interview and meet-and-greets that day as part of the four-day convention, which runs Aug. 29-Sept. 1. His appearance is only for Starrcast, not AEW’s All Out pay-per-view later that night. For the Chicago native, it is a chance for him to reconnect with his passionate and loyal fan base.

The best part is always finding out how you’ve touched people’s lives in a meaningful way. A lot of it can be heavy; helped someone get clean, helped somehow with the loss of a loved one. I am always touched to know the private intimate stories people have.”The 40-year-old was last seen by a national pro wrestling audience at the January 2013 WWE Royal Rumble. Punk left the company the following day before an edition of Monday Night Raw because of his frustrations with the organization.He went on to sign with the UFC in December 2013. Punk had two fights in the organization, going 0-2. He currently doesn’t have a fight booked and has been commentating at regional MMA events that air on UFC Fight Pass.
