This week’s new episode of “Something Else to Wrestle”, which is now available on WWE Network, features host Bruce Prichard discussing former WWE and UFC star CM Punk.
WWE has released the above clip from the episode, featuring Prichard discussing Punk’s straight edge lifestyle, and below is what Prichard had to say on why Punk chooses to live an alcohol and drug-free life:
“CM Punk growing up his father was an alcoholic. And Punk did not get along and did not have a good relationship with his father growing up, and hated, and when everything in his life was in disarray, he accredited that to his father being an alcoholic. Punk swore that he wasn’t going to let that affect him, and that’s where he really adopted the straight edge, which is you don’t drink, you don’t do drugs, and you lived your life on your terms and your rules. But you don’t need any extraneous substances in your body.”
You can listen to more from Prichard in the video clip above, during which Prichard tells the story of Punk’s famous Pepsi tattoo, Punk’s simple life philosophy and more.
