CM Punk has insisted that he'll never look back at his WWE days following his controversial departure from the company in 2014.

Punk, who was a big player in the squared circle, left the company two years ago after his relationship with the hierarchy reached boiling point and eventually broke down.

The former WWE Champion has been very vocal about the company ever since his departure, and he's admitted that there were several problems between himself and the likes of Vince McMahon and Triple H.

In December of 2014, it was officially announced that Punk had followed in Brock Lesnar's footsteps and signed a contract with Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Despite being signed with UFC for nearly two years, Punk is yet to step foot in the octagon, mainly due to an injury that pushed back his debut, but he is now set for his first appearance with the company as he prepares to fight Mickey Gall at UFC 203.

In the build-up to the fight, Punk has written a blog entry on 'The Players Tribune', and he's touched upon his time with WWE, and has also spoken about whether he misses working for the company.

Without giving an out-an-out answer of yes or no, Punk dived into his time with WWE, and gave reasons why he left and why he doesn't look back at his time as a WWE superstar.

Punk wrote: "For a long time, the demands of my schedule as a professional wrestler forced me to prioritize my job over everything else in my life.

"My family, my health and my own ambitions had to be placed on the back burner. I gave everything I had to the job.

"But my time as a professional wrestler didn't just end — it reached a conclusion. I achieved everything I wanted to in that arena, even beyond what I ever dreamed was possible.

"I had thought about trying something else for a long time before I actually made the move to MMA. And now that I've done it, I know I'll never look back."

So unfortunately for WWE and Punk fans, it doesn't look like a reunion will happen any time soon.
