CM Punk Talks WWE Return, AEW, Girl on the Third Floor and If He Would Return to the UFCJun 11, 2021
game? And I
wouldbe sure and I watched the game and I
wouldgive him criticism and say, “You know, maybe you know,” try this, try something different. Don't do the same thing, blah, blah, blah, and then the next night he'd be like, "Hey, watch my game." I watched him play and didn't listen to anything I said. He did the same thing Zack did the night before to you. I meet any guy and he comes back and it's like you watched my game and I'm just like, oh yeah, I missed that. He was stretching. Did that person finally succeed?
I mean, I think everyone there is successful. You know any man to a certain extent. but I don't know if anyone sees it like I do, I was a little bit obsessive and I saw it as art, you know, I think people do, I mean, I heard that in that interview with Jon Moxley, I would do it with Jericho and him. I mean, I think a lot, actually, to be honest, he reminded me of a lot of things that you used to say and then why you came out even earlier because it wasn't fun anymore, it seemed like you couldn't. t be your own character it seemed like there was there it's because it seems and correct me if I'm wrong it seems like the energy and the crowd is up that kind of thing never goes away like I don't like people when people ask me if I miss something about it, it would be as brilliant as acting and being able to, you know, pull the strings, that and that, and that, it's a drug that never goes away.

I mean, I did stand-up comedy for a long time and it's something that never goes away, that's hard, yeah, but it was, but that's exactly what you're saying. I wouldn't know. I would identify with that a lot. I would read you how to read crowds. You already know what material you are going to use. do that night if you have 20 minutes you have to know what 20 minutes you are going to do you are not going to do particular things that are going to work with a crowd you have to do it another way but but hearing that from jon moxley and saying that, you know if you try to get Vince to have his point of view, what is he going to do, you have to get out, so it makes sense what you're saying here because you don't want to be, you don't want to. be there if you're not happy you just don't do it um but when you talk when I bring it up John scoffs and you mention like the tubes we had on Cody Rhodes like last week and yeah and Brandi Susan Brennan and us and Everything this about aw with you too and there's something you said about them making an offer via text.
He said no offer was made via text message. You said yes, you didn't do it. an offer or sit like in a coffee shop he didn't deny the text message but he said but people brought out the coffee and and you had conversations too and because this with them you're advertising because when you say you didn't have fun it's potentially one of the two things that going back to a place where you could control your character you could do more things that made the front less of a travel schedule like an AW right or work with young wrestlers and maybe be you know, as far as being a Booker and something like that where you can teach the younger generations, that's something interesting, I don't know, this is that there is a big part of me, I mean talking about wrestling and doing anything in the field of wrestling.

They were protecting you. They are not helping you. I don't know how long I didn't have it, you know, that's in Taurus, even back in the Ricky Steamboat days, yeah, and you know, people tell me it's different now, you know, apparently you can go home with the cold or you can call , you can call. in and like I say that and like I'm even mad at myself right now for saying that because it's almost like I'm trying to shame someone, but if you're sick, you're sick, go home, you know? hurt, you're hurt, don't fight, but you know, because of the Fugazi lawsuit that I had there, I have mountains of paperwork that they had to submit to be discovered, where they're discussing all this intensely crazy private stuff, but I'm not involved in the conversation like they're talking about my mental health like, oh, do you think maybe he's depressed and everyone's like, I don't know, but he's got a fight in Europe, you know, for two weeks, so it's like, slow down. , as?
As a member of the office, shouldn't you stop that and run this guy off the road and say, hey, we were talking, maybe you're depressed?
