• “The landscape of Pro-Wrestling really needs a kick in the d*ck” – CM Punk
Former WWE Superstar CM Punk is scheduled to make his debut for Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling on tonight’s episode of AEW Rampage.
During an interview with TV Insider, Punk talked about preferring to watch Old School Pro Wrestling and criticized WWE for not uploading a lot of their stuff to the WWE Network yet.
Here’s what the former WWE Champion had to say:
“I think the older the stuff is the better. I think it’s partly unfortunate that WWE owns the super good libraries in pro wrestling. I think that stuff is classic and they don’t even put it on their network. They are sitting on it.
I want to watch Austin Idol versus Jerry Lawler in Memphis. I do think the landscape of pro wrestling in general really needs a kick in the d*ck. I think we are about there.”
Punk also appeared on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast a few days ago, where he was asked, whether he still watches WWE these days.
Here’s what he replied:
“No, I had to watch it a little bit when I was an analyst for FOX. But I mean…hmm, how do I say this diplomatically? Um, no, I think they’ve got some people who are super awesome and great in the ring, but you know, nothing grabs me to get me to want to watch.
I’m getting ‘a little long in the tooth’ now. And I would much rather uplift and show love to things I like than to tear anything down. You know, you can’t say that what they’re doing is wrong. They are the most profitable they’ve ever been since their inception, so who am I to say…you know what I mean?
Like…it’s ice cream, there’s 31,000 flavors, everybody gets their favorite, I just don’t like vanilla.”
