• CM Punk Comments On His Friendship With Brock Lesnar – “He’s a sweetheart & has a big heart”
During a recent interview with ESPN, former WWE wrestler CM Punk was asked about his friendship with current WWE Champion Brock Lesnar.
Below is what Punk said:
“I don’t want to ruin his image. I think he’s a f*ckin’ sweetheart. This is a guy, when I got into MMA and I left wrestling, he was texting me, ‘Hey, if you need any help’.
I’m always kind of a standoffish guy. It’s hard to open up and trust people in the pro-wrestling world. But he was never anything but a real sweetheart. It was a pleasure to work with him. He’s just a great guy, I think.
I think Brock has got a big heart, and that’s something a lot of people don’t talk about. They’ll talk about the freak strength and the crazy athletic things he’s done in his career, the accomplishments. But they don’t talk about the fact that he loves his wife, his kids, lives on a farm and just kind of wants to be left alone.
All the fame and the money and everything is really just a side effect of being successful at what he wants to do.
And he does what he wants, when he wants. That’s the beauty of Brock Lesnar.”
