CM Punk continues to make the media rounds ahead of what is expected to be his long-awaited return to the pro wrestling world on week two of AEW Rampage at “The First Dance” event in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois.
During a recent appearance on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast to promote his “Heels” series on Starz, “The Best in the World” was asked about whether or not he’s following the WWE product these days.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where he touches on this particular topic.
On whether or not he’s watching WWE these days: “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.”
On the host joking about him giving a diplomatic answer: “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.”
