‘The Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar or ‘The Best in the World’ CM Punk, who has had the more successful run? That was the question posed to advocate Paul Heyman during WFAN radio’s Benigno & Roberts in New York. His answer was pretty emphatic:
When asked why…
“What was the stock when CM Punk was the champion? What’s the stock now?
I have news for everybody. I know this will come as a shock. I know this is the type of news… fans hate to hear. Ready? It’s a business. It’s a business. So the stock, when CM Punk was champion was, what? 19? 20? 21? The stock is now at 80! $80 per share.
Who was the main event of WrestleMania? Who is the main event of SummerSlam? Who’s the most featured performer? Who’s on all the billboards? Who’s on all the posters? Who right now has an advocate speaking for him on WFAN? Brock Lesnar. Stock’s at 80. Obviously something is being done that is correct.”
Heyman was also asked about Punk possibly returning to WWE and whether he still keeps in contact with his former client:
“I don’t text him at all. And… in this business I’ve learned never to presume that someone’s not coming back, but if anybody’s not coming back, he’s the exception that defines the rule.”
