Ahead of his fight at UFC 225, CM Punk participated in a media scrum and below are some highlights, via MMAFighting.com You can watch more in the video player above.
On advice he gave Ronda Rousey before her WWE debut:
“The only thing I told her was to just have fun. I don’t know what it’s like [in WWE]in this current environment. I know she’d probably get treated differently, just as I know I probably get treated differently [in UFC]. The only thing I ever told her is, ‘I know you’ve got a lot of people telling you, do this, don’t do this’. Whatever you do, when you go out there for WrestleMania, make sure you have fun. Period.”
On whether or not Punk watched Ronda Rousey’s match at WrestleMania 34, Punk had the following to say:
“No I did not. I saw a couple of clips here and there. And still, when I say it’s hard for me to watch wrestling, it’s not like an anxiety thing, it’s not like an, ‘ugh, I can’t do it.’ I literally, I can’t get through eight seconds without being like, ‘OK, umm, can I change the channel? I’m bored, I gotta watch something else.’ It’s like going to a baseball game at CitiField. I like Wrigley Field, it’s old school. Going to a baseball game at CitiField, it’s like a guy gets ball four and they blow off fireworks and there’s LED screens on everything. Wrestling now is completely like that. There’s LED screens everywhere and there are flashing lights and I feel like I’m gonna have a seizure.”
