Former WWE creative writer Court Bauer, joined the WrestlingINC podcast last week & during the show, Bauer was asked who was responsible for signing former WWE Champion CM Punk & Bauer also revealed the gimmick that was originally set for CM Punk upon his WWE debut.
Here’s what Bauer had to say:
“John Laurinaitis signed him, he thought it was a good get. He was assigned to OVW and there were a few different ideas to bring him in. One of those ideas was to bring him in as an 80’s almost like a rockers, just like a 80’s rocker gimmick and he was going to be paired with Mickie James at first. Almost like a real babyface high-five, big smile wear 80s rock gear stuff.”
