– CM Punk, who makes his UFC debut tonight at UFC 203 live on pay-per-view (PPV), recently did a blog for The Players Tribune about being asked if he misses WWE. You can read an excerpt here:
For a long time, the demands of my schedule as a professional wrestler forced me to prioritize my job over everything else in my life. My family, my health and my own ambitions had to be placed on the backburner. I gave everything I had to the job. But my time as a professional wrestler didn’t just end — it reached a conclusion. I achieved everything I wanted to in that arena, even beyond what I ever dreamed was possible. I had thought about trying something else for a long time before I actually made the move to MMA. And now that I’ve done it, I know I’ll never look back.
– Speaking of Punk, Dave Meltzer is reporting that WWE star Paige is “basically in the same situation A.J. Lee was on when C.M. Punk left.” We reported earlier this week that it is looking like Paige will be gone from the company after her real-life boyfriend Alberto Del Rio took his leave. Meltzer also stated that “the situation will be weird.”
