Jim Ross gave his Capitol Punishment predictions in his blog:
Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk….looking forward to this bout as much as any on the show because I am a big fan of both men. Love the in ring stylings of each and they have a nice back story that can be told. Punk is arguably the best in WWE at what he does especially now that Edge has retired. Rey is so unique that no matter the outcome, if these two have the time, this will be a superb performance.
Jason Hawes from Ghost Hunters posted this photo with CM Punk on his facebook page:
“At the NBC event today at Chicago and all the sudden in walks my old friend C.M. Punk from WWE. Was good seeing him again.”
Jim Ross mentioned Punk in his Raw Thoughts blog:
Austin can be so intense that it bleeds through the TV screen. His Clint Eastwood-esque delivered line to CM Punk….”punk” was golden. @CMPunk and Austin have excellent on screen chemistry and back in the day they would have had a helluva run. Nothing but money.
Austin’s mic work with Miz, Vickie Guerrero, and CM Punk were three of the most memorable moments of the three hour Raw.
Thank you to Amanda for this video of CM Punk from last week, appearing on Great Day San Antonio to promote Raw.
Punk is known for his outspoken views, which have often caused trouble backstage and got him in hot water with his bosses.
However, reflecting on a career that saw him start by wrestling in his garden as a teenager, the headliner said he wouldn’t change a thing.
Speaking to Fighting Spirit Magazine, Punk said: “For me the thing I’m most proud of — aside from being three-time heavyweight champion and winning Money In The Bank — is the fact that I started wrestling in my backyard when I was 15, and now I’m here.
“When a WWE PPV finished, I went to the backyard with my friends and we started trading blows with each other, just goofing off.
“I was CM Punk when I was rolling around with my friends in the backyard when I was 15, and now I’m CM Punk at WrestleMania XXVII fighting Randy Orton in front of 70,000 people.
