CM Punk was asked how he got into the wrestling business during an interview with SportsTalk Live in Chicago. Here is what the former WWE Champion said.
“I guess I got into what I do just like anybody would get into what they do,” Punk said. “I fell in love with it at an early age. I didn’t know you had to go to school to do it… I sort of just goofed around for a little bit and found a training school in Chicago called the Steel Domain, it used to be in Irving park but it’s switched to a couple of locations. I went there and I did that, and then I jumped in a car and I drove around Helen Creation until somebody started to pay me.”
Punk also gave his opinions on some of WWE’s current top personalities.
Daniel Bryan: “Second best wrestler in the world.”
John Cena: “Company man.”
Brock Lesnar: “Challenging.”
Randy Orton: “Money in the bank.”
CM Punk: “I’d probably say a bunch of self deprecating negative stuff, he’s got a double chin, he’s kinda fat, he talks to much, his face is all scarred up.”
Paul Heyman: “Paul Heyman’s a bad egg. I’d like to see Paul Heyman try to run the bases.”
