CM Punk was a guest on The Abe Kanan Show on SiriusXM channel Howard 101.
Punk was able to meet 77-year-old Thomas Dotterer, the liquor store robbery victim who was shot in the eye, but said the worst thing that happened all week was Punk losing to The Rock at the Royal Rumble.
Dotterer was talking about the robbery in Syracuse, New York and returning to work after being released from the hospital. The hosts surprised him when Punk called into to talk to him. Dotterer said he’s a wrestling fan going back to the 1940s when he watched Gorgeous George with his father. He said he follows Ring of Honor and TNA Wrestling and appreciates Punk’s career rising to the top of WWE. He said Punk’s hard work and dedication is why he was so upset when The Rock was booked to win.
Punk then offered Dotterer to be his special guest when WWE is in Syracuse for a house show on March 3.
