CM Punk on today’s WWE: “It’s amazing, the more time the show gets, the less time it really seems they develop new characters”

“I think we live in a time now where WWE is not the end-all, be-all.”

CM Punk has made it abundantly clear that he has no interest in returning to a pro wrestling ring any time soon, but that doesn’t stop him from being asked about it. In a recent interview with MMAFighting, Punk was asked about Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, and the heavy rumors about their own upcoming wrestling promotion, apparently named “All Elite Wrestling.”

Says Punk, “I think we live in a time now where WWE is not the end-all, be-all. I don’t think it has been for quite some time.” And when asked if creating their own promotion is the right move for the former Bullet Club members, the longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era did not mince words about his former employer.

“I think they can command their price if they want there. But if they did go there, then they’d just be another guy — just like everybody else on that show,” Punk opined. He went on to add, “It’s amazing, the more time the show gets, the less time it really seems they develop new characters.”

Harsh, though not entirely inaccurate. Be sure to give the rest of the interview a read, which dives into Punk’s newest project of commentating for CFFC MMA — which will air on UFC’s Fight Pass.
