CM Punk was on a recent episode of My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox.
During it, he was asked whether he watches his old matches. He did when he was younger not towards the end of his career. Here is what he had to say:
“Not at that juncture of my career. There was for sure times when I would watch stuff when I was training and wanting to get better on the indies, and you watch stuff an nitpick it,” Punk said. “See what you can do better. See what you did wrong. If you did, try to improve on things. At that stage in my career, no. Nobody could tell me nothing. They were playing my music I remember. They were screaming at me to get to Gorilla because I was on the ramp.
“I was talking to AJ [Lee], and she was looking at me. She was like, ‘You gotta go,’ and I was like, ‘[deep breath] yeah, alright.’ Obviously, I’m straight edge, and I don’t smoke, but there was a very metaphorical [Punk pretends to smoke]. ‘Yeah, alright. Don’t go anywhere. I’ll be right back.’ I was more interested talking to the pretty lady. I have fond memories of that. I don’t want to ruin any by watching it.”
