Anyone that follows professional wrestling will know that CM Punk and the WWE has a fractious relationship and one that would seemingly be beyond repair.
Of course, he is not the only previous employee to have had a real issue with things regarding the promotion, and he certainly will not be the last one, but it seems he does not have too much to say about his time with them, other than suggesting that it was a “wasted time”.
Heavily focused with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), where he will take on “Hangman” Adam Page in a championship contest that will take place as AEW Double or Nothing as the headline fight, he was recently interviewed about his time in the WWE.
We all know that things have been difficult for the professional wrestling scene over the last few years, with some bookings making us head to www.arabic-casinos.net as they have just simply failed to capture our imaginations and allow us to truly get behind the storylines that are being created.
However, it seems CM Punk would join in with those concerns, suggesting that his time with the promotion should have been so much more than what it was.
Speaking in his interview with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, he said: “I feel like it was kind of wasted. It could have been so much more. It should have been so much more. And now, this is everything I dreamed pro wrestling could and should be. And I’m here and I’m f*cking in the moment. I’m not thinking about tomorrow. I’m not worried about sh*t that happened yesterday. I’m living in the moment and I’m 100% in my f*cking prime, best I’ve ever been.”
For some, when Punk was in the WWE between 2005 and 2014, it was some of the best years the promotion has had for some time.
He was involved in a number of brilliant storylines, including the pipebomb and his decision to “leave with the WWE Championship” after winning at Money in the Bank before returning a few short weeks later. Let’s not forget that he was also considered the biggest star at one point as he held the title for 434 days – a historic reign.
However, the WWE never actually showed it, as they rarely presented him as a star or the face of the company, with a storyline between him and Vince McMahon also being played out at the time as his contract was coming to an end.
Punk would ultimately leave in 2014 after the Royal Rumble, as he walked away after finding it tough to continue with the product and wanted nothing more to do with the company.
