While making an appearance on Barstool Sports’ My Mom’s Basement podcast, former WWE Champion CM Punk spoke about some interesting topics.
He made an appearance in order to promote his latest film, Girl on the Third Floor. During the interview, he spoke about his interest in a potential pro-wrestling return.
This is where Punk stated that he was “absolutely” interested in a potential return but after being asked about it for the past five years, there have been many iterations of people saying that he hates wrestling, which is not the case.
“I think I’ve always been open to it. My attitude has always been that I don’t see it happening. I think I’ve talked about it more recently, but my attitude hasn’t changed. People always ask what would it take to go back, and I say it would take a big bag. So people use their imaginations.”
Punk continued by noting, “I’m that white whale in pro wrestling. I don’t know if that freaks people out on how to approach me. I’m open to the idea, I haven’t been approached properly. I’m not courting anyone to show up with a dozen roses at my front door.”
