• CM Punk Reveals Why He Can’t Watch WWE For More Than 8 Seconds Now
During a UFC 225 open workout media scrum, former WWE wrestler CM Punk was asked about Ronda Rousey in WWE, if he still watches Pro-Wrestling, what’s wrong with Pro-Wrestling nowadays & more.
Below are the highlights:
On what did he tell Ronda Rousey before Rousey’s WrestleMania 34 match:
“The only thing I’ve told her is to just have fun,” Punk said. “I don’t know what it’s like back there in this current environment. I know she’d probably get treated differently, just as like I know I get probably treated differently here. The only thing I ever told her is that I know you’ve got a lot of people telling you, ‘do this, don’t do this.’ I just said, whatever you do, when you go out there for WrestleMania, make sure you have fun. Period.”
On why he can’t watch WWE for more than 8 seconds:
“When I say it’s hard for me to watch wrestling, it’s not like an anxiety thing, it’s not like, ‘I can’t do it!’ I literally can’t get through eight seconds without being like, ‘OK, I’m bored, I gotta watch something else.’ They’ve got like… it’s like going to a baseball game at CitiField. I like Wrigley Field, it’s old school. Going to a baseball game at CitiField, it’s like a guy takes ball four and they blow off fireworks and there’s LED screens on everything and wrestling now is completely like that. There’s LED screens everywhere and there’s flashing lights and I feel like I’m gonna have like a seizure.”
On why he can’t watch indy wrestling either:
“I don’t know why. Subconsciously, there’s like a disconnect. I see clips of stuff, like I know Kenny Omega is the hot guy and he’s probably one of the better guys in the world right now, but it’s the same thing. I’ll watch clips of matches, I don’t see myself watching like a full match. I just can’t do it.”
On what he used to like in Pro-Wrestling:
“I think it’s definitely too glossy, but it’s been like that for a very long time. My jam was house shows before they started calling them live events, where it was a curtain and a ring and a light above the ring. That was my jam, that was my world, that was where I liked to thrive.”
