What did Daniel Garcia think of his AEW Rampage match against CM Punk a few weeks ago?
During a recent appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, the pro wrestling veteran spoke about his showdown against “The Best in the World” being the biggest match thus far of his AEW run.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this topic with his thoughts.
“That was pretty cool. CM Punk is someone who I obviously watched for probably 15 years of my life at this point. I really looked up to that guy for a very long time. He’s one of my favorite wrestlers and still probably is. He’s my mom’s favorite wrestler too. When he came in, I was thinking, man it would be cool if I got to wrestle CM Punk. It would be like a dream come true for me. When me and 2point0 attacked him on his second appearance back I think, it was the first time there was any physical contact with CM Punk in the ring in 7 years. Then we didn’t touch upon that for a couple of weeks. I was like, maybe I won’t get to wrestle him for a little bit. Then they announced on Dynamite when I was just sitting backstage, and he called me out. I checked my phone and I was like, I guess I’m wrestling CM Punk on Rampage this week. I wrestled him and it was a great learning experience for me. It taught me a lot about simple, easy storytelling. Not everything has to be hard wrestling. It’s very easy if you let it be.”
