CM Punk is set for his next MMA match as part of his UFC career. In just a few days, he will compete against Mike Jackson.
This is going to be his second only match in the company after exiting the WWE, four years ago. Ever since he left in 2014, he is under contract with the UFC promotion. But, till date, he has not done anything brilliant to make a name for himself, in this particular area.
In his first MMA fight back in 2014, Mickey Gall defeated CM Punk in a record two minutes and 45 seconds. It was a straight knock out for him which showed he is not ready for the Octagon. But, still, the Cult of Personality is getting a second chance. Millions of his fans are expecting a miracle around this time.
But, as always, WWE might not think the same on this. The franchise player of the company noted on this burning topic in this interview and expressed his thoughts on this upcoming match.
As per his thoughts, things will be negative for CM Punk, this time, too.
Roman Reigns talked that he’d be surprised if the fight goes over than 30 seconds. He did not let the chance go to take a shot at the superstar who once walked out of his pro-wrestling fans. Check out his short answer from the interview with Express Sports,
“If it goes longer than 30 seconds… I better prepare my food and drinks early because you never know…”
The jabs towards CM Punk from a WWE spokesperson continues ever since his departure. Previously, Stephanie McMahon insulted him on live TV in front of the Chicago fans. While the fans were chanting his name, she told them to let the chants go over 2 minutes and 45 seconds. It proves the bad blood between these two parties is still going on.
The Big Dog continued the interview revealing his relationship with John Cena. In the early days, he did not bother to seek advice from the Cenation Leader. He always wanted to go in his way as the new poster boy of the company. But, later he feels that consulting is mandatory in this business. So, he did not shy away to knock the door of Cena in the locker room,
“He’s been great at helping me. Not only in that regard but in the match and the time I had working with him. It was phenomenal, and it’s really nice to have someone help you and sharpen your tools, so to speak. So I’m very grateful for him as well.”
