Alberto Del Rio Says CM Punk Will Be Back, Talks Money In The Bank, Being A True Heel, Roman Reigns, Much More


ADR: CM Punk Will Be BackAlberto Del Rio talked with Digital Spy recently and discussed a TON of stuff in promotion for this Sunday's WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Del Rio talked CM Punk's departure, heels wanting to be "cool", being a former MITB winner, and much more.

Check out some of the highlights below:

On CM Punk coming back to the company:

"Yeah, of course. He'll be back soon. I don't know when, but he'll back."

On too many heels wanting to be cool:

"Oh, yeah of course! I would say that 95% of the heels want to be cool, they want to be cheered, they want to sign autographs. They wanna be the bad guys but at the same time they wanna get the cheers from the crowd.

To be honest, for me that's disgusting, because you have to play your role. In life, in the business, if you're the bad guy you're the bad guy – you need to embrace people booing you, when people hate you.

That's what I do, that's what real heels do. They're still doing it in other places around the world. They still do it in Japan, they still do it in Mexico. The heel is a heel. He's a bad guy, period!"

On Roman Reigns and The Shield breaking up:

"I don't really think about The Shield, but I can tell you something – Roman Reigns is a great competitor. He's strong, fast. I would say he is the new rising star for the WWE.

He's going to a great competitor that night, but unfortunately he's going to be in the ring with Alberto Del Rio, so I don't think he's going to win the title."
