Bully Ray Comments on CM Punk Possibly Returning at the Royal Rumble


During the latest edition of Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray commented on CM Punk possibly returning as the #30 entrant in the Royal Rumble match and eliminating Brock Lesnar, thus setting up CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his idea for Royal Rumble with CM Punk: “I think that if there’s hope that surrounds any one wrestler more than anyone else it’s him. I think that no matter how many times we come on this show and been like, ‘OK, enough about Punk because he doesn’t want to do this anymore, or he wants to do MMA, or his heart’s not really in it, or he keeps saying forget about it,’ even though he keeps pro wrestling at more than an arm’s length, I think that fans everywhere hope to see him back. And the only reason I’m suggesting CM Punk is not for the shock value of him being a surprise entrant. It’s for the story that it could present for Brock.”

On how he thinks it should play out with Punk, Lesnar and Paul Heyman: “Check this out. Brock is standing by himself, end of the match, he ran the gamut. Everyone’s out. Who the hell is gonna be number 30? Punk’s music hits. The place is gonna go absolute bats*** crazy, yes or no? What would the look on Paul Heyman’s face be if CM Punk is coming to the ring against his beast. Who else did Paul represent besides Brock Lesnar? Now, he’s got the two guys, his biggest successes in the WW, will now be standing face to face. Punk enters the ring. Punk and Brock Lesnar are face-to-face. That hard camera shot shows them face-to-face and splitting right in the middle is the look of horror — Paul Heyman looking like Kevin from Home Alone, with that look of horror on his face like, ‘What the frick am I supposed to do now? I never saw this coming. I’m Paul Heyman. I’m the master manipulator. I’m the master chess player. I can outwork anybody in the ring and in the back, and now I am face-to-face with a situation that not even I saw coming. And Punk eliminates Brock and then challenges Brock for the championship. You don’t think that’s a WrestleMania main event that is gonna put asses in seats and buyrates?!”
