Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has recently spoken to MMA Fighting and in the interviewer asked him several questions. Punk’s final days in the WWE ended in backstage arguments, and then he left WWE on bad terms.
CM Punk advice to former UFC fighter Ronda Rousey,
“The only thing I told her was to just have fun. I don’t know what it’s like back there in this current environment. I know she’d probably get treated differently, just as I know I probably get treated differently here. The only thing I ever told her is, ‘I know you’ve got a lot of people telling you, do this, don’t do this’ — whatever you do, when you go out there for WrestleMania, make sure you have fun. Period.”
There’s no doubt that CM Punk could not talk bad about the Vince McMahon and the problems he had with the management during his run with the WWE.
Punk on if he watched Ronda Rousey debut match at Wrestlemania 34.
“No, I did not. I saw a couple of clips here and there. And still, when I say it’s hard for me to watch wrestling, it’s not like an anxiety thing, it’s not like an, ‘ugh, I can’t do it.’ I literally, I can’t get through eight seconds without being like, ‘OK, umm, can I change the channel? I’m bored, I gotta watch something else.’ It’s like going to a baseball game at [New York Mets stadium] CitiField. I like Wrigley Field, it’s old school. Going to a baseball game at CitiField, it’s like a guy gets ball four and they blow off fireworks, and there’s LED screens on everything. Wrestling now is completely like that. There’s LED screens everywhere, and there are flashing lights, and I feel like I’m gonna have a seizure.”
Punk debut match loss at UFC 203 has disappointed a lot of fans, and the match ended in 2:14 minutes in the first round. I don’t follow UFC or any of the fighters on the roster, but I’m going to watch UFC 225 because CM Punk is going to compete for the second time in UFC. Punk has to prove himself, and back his words.
I must agree with Punk that watching a full match has become a little boring, but Ronda Rousey debut match, Brock Lesnar leaving arena as Universal Champion, and the return of The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 34 was amazing.
