• CM Punk Recalls The Time When He Asked Stone Cold Steve Austin To Hit Him With A Stunner
While talking to Inside The Ropes, CM Punk revealed that he once asked Stone Cold Steve Austin to hit him and other heels on RAW with a Stunner.
Below is what he said:
“I remember 2010, maybe, I remember being in, I think, San Diego, and Austin was in San Diego, and he was just strictly there, and I can’t remember why he was there, and I just remember looking at him and being like, ‘You know what, f*ck it’.
And I walked up to him and I go, ‘Hey, what are you doing?’ And he was like, ‘What do you mean?’ And I was like, ‘Well, you’re here,’ I go, ‘I gotta work a dark match after this,’ I go, ‘Do you mind coming out and giving me a Stunner? How else are we going to send these people home, you know what I mean?’
He was like, ‘Goddamn, yeah, alright kid.’ And you know, here’s the guy, he literally was like, ‘I been back here I don’t know how many times and ain’t nobody ever asked me that before.’ And I was like, ‘Well why the f*ck hasn’t anybody asked this guy,’ because I was like, I’m out the door, I might as well be able to say I took a Stunner.”
