• CM Punk On If He Watches AEW, WWE vs. AEW
During a recent interview with WGN News, former WWE wrestler CM Punk promoted his upcoming movie and talked about the wrestling scene today.
Below are the highlights:
On the differences between WWE & Acting:
“Working for WWE and doing live TV every day of your life is a lot. It’s high pressure, so having the ability to do multiple takes, to do multiple, different angles of things and stuff…I’m not going to say it made it easier because there are definitely challenges to it, but it made it fun.”
On if he watches AEW and AEW Dynamite’s success so far:
“I do not. I don’t watch wrestling.
I think it’s great. Yeah, I wish these guys nothing but success. You know, if they’re successful, it will force WWE to be more creative and it’s always better when there’s not just one place to work.
You know, it’s better for the wrestlers, it’s better for the fans. I think competition drives industry, so if there’s only one place in town to work, I think the creatives will be lazy. So, hopefully both companies will push each other and make the product better for the fans.”
