Former WWE tag team champion Jey Uso recently joined Chuck Carroll on The Turnbuckle Weekly to promote WWE TLC. Here are some highlights;
“I know he wouldn’t say something without any meaning behind it. I feel like he was just trying to light a fire under the locker room. He wants guys to go out there and grab that brass ring, step out on a limb, and go out there and get it. I feel like some of the guys, including myself… when me and my brother first came it is kind of like walking on egg shells. We don’t want to mess up because we’re new guys. We’re young we don’t know what to do.
As far as ambition, I feel like we do have a good crew. It’s going to take time. It’s going to take some years to get used to this thing. But as soon as we got our feet deep in the ground and our claws deep in the dirt, we’re going to be ok. I love my group of guys. I love my locker room. If you look at it we have some great talent in there. It is going to take time. It’s going to take time. That’s all I can say about it.”
Rener Gracie, the husband of Eve Torres who is a friend of CM Punk recently spoke to mmafighting.com where he talked about CM Punk and other things;
“He’s showing up for two weeks at a time, training exclusively with me, 100 percent, then he’s out. Then he comes back six months later. So, there’s not been enough consistency to concern ourselves with belts. But man, he’s remarkable. He’s in the top tier of students that I’ve ever worked with as far as his retention ability goes — his athleticism and his ability to train for long periods of time, because he’s very resilient and very athletic. I don’t know what he wants to do with it, where he wants to take it. I just enjoy the process and having students as dedicated as him.”
Gracie believes that Punk could be dedicated enough to make it in MMA. Rener said:
“Absolutely, without a doubt, if he wanted to apply himself to any skill, he would have to apply himself like he does to jiu-jitsu to the other arts as well to make sure he’s well-rounded. But this is something completely speculative that I know nothing about. For now it’s just jiu-jitsu 100 percent.”
