Jim Ross commented on whether he feels CM Punk is the next Steve Austin:
Is CM Punk the next Steve Austin? I hope not. I hope that Punk is simply the best CM Punk that he can be. The best for Punk has yet to come in my view. Punk being compared to Austin is inevitable because both are ‘defiant’ and ‘anti establishment’ persona’s but their in ring styles, body types, etc are distinctly different.
WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk spoke to Monday Night Mayhem & gave his opinion on CM Punk:
I think he’s in sync with wrestling fans. I think he’s in sync with the country. I think it’s a very smart move on what’s doing right now. I have a lot of respect for the guy. I have a lot of respect for his ability in the ring. I think CM Punk is a hell of an in-ring performer. If they let him go and go on his own, they might find out that he’s a hell of a talker. Let it go back to being an extension of your own personality. I think that would be a positive for their company.
CM Punk is featured on the front of the Money In The Bank DVD, due to be released on August 16th. More info can be found at WWEDVDNews.com.
