CM Punk On Meeting Robin Williams
He started his professional wrestling career in 1999. After travelling in various promotions he finally came WWE in 2005. His first major championship was the ECW Championship. He won his first World Heavyweight Championship in 2008. She won the money in the bank ladder match at Wrestlemania 24 and he cashed it in successfully on Edge.
After he left WWE in 2014 is it right to make a career in the UFC. But he could not be successful here as he was in WWE. Then fans are dying to see CM Punk back to a professional wrestling promotion again. But he did not return and it seems like he will never return to professional wrestling again. But he is having a nice career in Hollywood. He is trying to make a name in the horror movie genre in Hollywood.
Recently the former five times WWE world champion featured as a guest on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast where he revealed his experience on meeting the Hollywood Legend Robin Williams for the first time in his life. He said;
“I never ever tell this story because Lars was very good friends with Robin Williams. There was one time I was sleeping upstairs in Lars’ house and, I like to sleep, ladies and gentlemen. To this day, if I don’t have to get up and do anything – I don’t got to set an alarm – I’m a free spirit. Do you know what I mean? I don’t got planes to catch.
“I did a whole lifetime of that, so I just sleep until I wake up, and I was doing that at Lars.’ I woke up because somebody had jumped on top of me while I was sleeping and as I wake up and I turn around I’m like, ‘It’s f**king Robin Williams.’ So, what do you do? Right? This is the first time I’ve ever met Robin Williams and I think, as the story goes, he was just like, ‘Oh, the wrestler, he’s sleeping upstairs right now?’
“Lars was like, ‘Yeah,’ and Robin, being who Robin is, is like, ‘F**k yeah, let’s Jimmy Superfly Snuka this motherf**ker.’ So he runs up and he splashes me in the bed. I wake up and I immediately think it’s Lars, so I just start charging after him.”
