According to Fightful Select, Punk has been working hard in the ring and received praise for his in-ring work on this show.
Wrestlers & cast members that worked with Punk on this show noted that Punk looked a lot healthier than his final WWE days back in 2014.
It was also noted that Punk looked good in the ring, which many believe is due to him training a lot for this series. Sources said Punk didn’t have any ring rust, and it almost looked like he never left the wrestling business.
