• TNA Worker Recalls CM Punk Getting Beat Up In A Backstage Fight
During a recent interview with The Hannibal TV, former WCW & TNA backstage worker Bill Behrens talked about the fight between CM Punk and Teddy Hart which he witnessed, what he thinks of CM Punk going into MMA and which WWE superstar he thinks would do much better in MMA.
Below are the highlights:
On the fight between CM Punk and Teddy Hart which he witnessed:
“It was like a really bad UFC fight in that… all of a sudden to the left, there’s a fight that has literally just started. From the very beginning, it was takedown by Teddy, Punk down, and Teddy’s just destroying him. I think Sabu was walking up with this, but regardless Sabu ran in and got Teddy to focus on him. He broke for Sabu, so Sabu did the save for Punk on that particular one.
The whole thing, if it lasted more than 20 seconds I’d be surprised. It was short, Punk had no offense and was just covering up. He also wasn’t badly scarred out of it either because Teddy was pulled off pretty quickly, it wasn’t like it lasted a long time. But there was no chance, at least from what we were seeing, that Punk was going to get much of a comeback out of it.”
On what he thinks of CM Punk going into MMA and which WWE superstar he thinks would do much better in MMA:
“They can, he’ll probably lose it. It was one of the strangest things, Punk going into MMA. I could see a healthy Daniel Bryan going into MMA, that would make sense to me. But Punk was never really that guy, at least not in my impression.”
• Update: Daniel Bryan NOT Required To Fulfill Any Extra Condition For His Return
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer recently reported that Daniel Bryan will be required undergo ImPACT testing and neuropsychological evaluation after every match until WWE’s doctor feel comfortable and think there’s no more need.
However, Dave Meltzer is wrong again and that’s not the case. According to DirtySheets.Net, Bryan doesn’t have to fulfill any extra condition for his in-ring return as he’s completely cleared.
Furthermore, Dirty Sheets noted that WWE wrestlers are tested for concussions every month (regardless of their past history) as it costs them only $20 because one of the doctors who developed ImPACT testing is Joseph Maroon and he works for WWE.
