Former WWE Champion and current UFC star CM Punk spoke to Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg to promote tonight’s FS1 documentary and the UFC 203 fight against Mickey Gall. Below are where he name dropped Taker:
Rosenberg asked when was the last time Punk felt he had to be tough in a wrestling locker room. Punk says WWE was once like that but it’s changed. He named people like Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Chris Benoit, The Undertaker, Edge and several others as people in the locker room when he came in, which caused him to have to fight for his spot.
Taker & HBK, for the majority of Punk’s WWE run were part-timers. So tbh, I don’t know where Punk’s getting that from.
