WWE Studios Interested In MMA Star Gina Carano, But Not CM Punk?

WWE Studios held a focus group session yesterday in Buffalo, New York prior to Night of Champions. The group screened footage of the upcoming John Cena film The Reunion and were subsequently asked for feedback. The group was also asked to fill out a survey.

* One question listed the bulk of the WWE roster and asked participants to place a check mark next to the names of Superstars he or she would like to see in an upcoming film. Despite his recent rants of not being promoted enough by WWE, CM Punk was noticeably absent from the ballot.

* Mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano was listed on the survey three times. The survey asked participants if her name was recognizable and if he or she would want to see her in an upcoming WWE Studios film.

* Those attending the focus group session were paid $20.

    I agree with Logan.

    Honestly I can’t really see Punk as an actor in a film. There’s just something about him that makes him seem like he wouldn’t be very believable in any role except what he’s doing now.

    WWE is too afraid CM Punk will become more popular than John Cena. Among us WRESTLING fans he already is.

    CM Punk is too hot right now. No time for movie deals.

    CM Punk appeared on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” online show today, and discussed a number of MMA and pro wrestling topics.

    Helwani asked Punk about Triple H’s recent comments claiming UFC needs to evolve more than WWE. Punk said he felt that it was an absolute insane statement. Punk said pro wrestling, in fact, has a lot of work to do. He mentioned talking about MMA with Triple H many times, and noted that HHH “just doesn’t get it.”

    Punk was asked whether or not MMA has hurt the pro wrestling business. Punk claimed that it definitely didn’t help the wrestling business. Punk claimed that to deny UFC as competition to WWE is ridiculous.

    Helwani asked Punk who he would be facing at WrestleMania 28. Punk said he doesn’t know because things change in WWE all the time. He said he would like to face “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
