WWE veteran Rob Van Dam recently talked about CM Punk’s future
Former WWE Champion Rob Van Dam recently had a chat with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Senior Editor Bill Apter. He stated that no matter where Punk goes, he would do fine for himself. Check out RVD’s full comments below:
“CM Punk has a lot of fans and he has done well for himself, both promotion-wise and getting people behind him. It’s interesting to see what will happen. It will be fine if he wrestles somewhere else, or he doesn’t wrestle. Either way, I’m sure he’ll be fine. His lines, which he doesn’t want to cross, are written in bolding. Not the most passive person that I’ve ever met when it comes to a possible slight, when someone could’ve possibly slighted him, I think he’s defensive, like having a chip on his shoulder. I don’t know him that well, but he strikes me as that kind of a ‘Punk.'” [5:36 – 6:45]
Now that Punk is back in WWE, a long list of epic dream matches is in store for him. Fans would love to see him square off against the likes of Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and LA Knight.
