CM Punk Talks $500 Ice Cream Bars, Breaking T-Shirt Record Sales & More

CM Punk continues to make the media rounds to promote his match against Darby Allin at AEW All Out 2021 this weekend.

Ahead of his big PPV return in his hometown, “The Best in the World” spoke with ESPN for an interview to promote the show, during which he spoke about selling out arenas, breaking t-shirt record sales and $500 ice cream bars being part of his “perfect storm” of a return to the business.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On selling out arenas, breaking t-shirt record sales and $500 ice cream bars being part of his return: “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime spot. I’m never going to get a chance to do something like that again. I don’t know if there’s ever gonna be another chance for anybody to do something like that again. Perfect storm.”

On his thoughts on ‘the boys’ philosiphy in the business: “To me, honestly, there’s no such thing as ‘the boys,’ If there was such a thing as ‘the boys,’ there would be a f—ing union. And too many times you see people just get so unfairly treated and there’s a whole locker room full of people who would be — if it was them — be like, ‘Hey guys, help me.’ And I was one of those people. The business is always going to be the business. It’s built the way it is. I will always tell individual wrestlers, you have to protect yourself. You can’t expect other people to come to your aid. I found out the hard way. There’s other people that it’s still happening [to]. You can be loyal to a company that wouldn’t piss on your ashes if you burned alive or you could just make sure at the end of the day that you’re happy and you’re healthy.”
