• WWE Hall Of Famer Explains Why He Believes CM Punk Will Return
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry was asked if he thinks CM Punk will ever return to Pro-Wrestling.
Below is what Henry said:
“I do and the biggest part of that reason for me saying that is I know how much he loves wrestling. The issue with wrestling and Punk is there are guys out there in the wrestling outside the WWE at that time like Colt Cabana who is really good and who I like and I like to hear him on the microphone — there’s no weakness and he felt like – ‘Wow that guy can’t get a shot?’
And this dude — there’s people just like any sport you have the starting 5 on the basketball court and you’ve got these other seven guys who are obviously not as good as the ones on the floor.
Sometimes in pro wrestling there are guys on the bench that should be on the bench and you’ve got guys that should not be on the bench. They should be playing and Punk did not like that.
He’s like ‘put the best people out there no matter what they look like. If they’re good the fans will love them for being good. They won’t care if they don’t have a six-pack or an eight-pack.”
