Good observation.

Although, I don't know that Punk will command that kind of money again after the loss. The hype is probably over.

You think he'll be back in the WWE Monte?

Personally, I can see him taking a stab at another MMA match.
If that doesn't work out, he'll have lost a lot of real estate value with both audiences.

UFC won't want him more, and WWE won't want him back. I think "serious" fans would see an attempt to return after failing at another venture to be a slap in the face.
Whatever he does, he'll have to make some kind of move soon to retain as much relevance as he can.

True, but it's taken 2 years of extremely tough training to earn that.  He could have earnt close to that by going to another wrestling company, topped up by making personal appearances or even getting some punditry/commentary work for a variety of sports.  But the balloon has burst with this loss, UFC are never going to pay him that much again.

I'd agree with that, didn't he sign for more than one fight with UFC anyway?  There's still some money in him, albeit nowhere near the $500k he got for this fight.  He'll get another fight, maybe against an older veteran with a poor ground game, anything to give him some time in the ring and half a chance of winning.  If he wins that fight, then he's back on track and the interest is there again.

I have to respect his work ethic though, he's gone into an extremely tough sport, with a very low level of prior training in comparison to his opponents, and given it a shot.  He's let himself down in his performance, but he'll get back on the horse and try again.

Agreed 100% here.

UPDATE: According to a “veteran TNA talent,” everyone in TNA is nervous about the company’s impending sale. The situation is described as a “new level of concern” above and beyond the usual uncertainty about the company’s status.

Several wrestlers who were booked for next week’s iMPACT! tapings have had their flights and matches canceled, with the aforementioned source saying he wasn’t even sure if he would be on the Bound For Glory card because the company was trying to save as much money as possible.

ORIGINAL: Here are some new details on TNA’s potential sale, which is obviously the big story over the past several days. According to reports, Billy Corgan has a net worth of $40 million, but as Corgan told Busted Open Radio he is bidding on his own and has no investors.
 While the potential sale price of the company is not known, TNA has had enough financial trouble that Corgan becoming the new owner would not solve all of those problems. At the last iMPACT! taping, checks that were long past due were being signed, validated and distributed as TV was going on.

There aren’t any further details at this time regarding what the chances of WWE have at buying the company although as has been reported, they have been involved in bidding.

So many people dismiss TNA as a glorified Indy promotion, but I disagree.
They are more than that.

At the very least, they are the last chance for a pro-wrestling product other than Vince to exist.
I'd hate to see that dissolve.

I've only seen 80's/early-90's footage.

How would you compare it to that?
