Former WWE Superstar & UFC Figher CM Punk was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated. When asked what made him a good pro wrestler, Punk responded with the following:

“Well, that’s another thing in that phony world. What does it mean to be a good fake wrestler? That’s an identity crisis that I think I struggled with. It doesn’t matter if you’re the best; someone else picks who they want in the top spot.”

When asked why more of his former pro wrestling peers haven’t made the move to MMA, Punk said:

“I’ve always been surrounded by guys who talked about it. Half of them talk about it; none of them do it. They have their little comfortable safety net doing WWE stuff, I guess. I would much rather give it a shot than just talk about it.”
