Mick Foley Says “CM Punk Was In Pain For Years”


Mick Foley wrote a new Facebook blog today and this time it is about CM Punk. 


the response to that funny photo of CM Punk on a milk carton was
incredible. While I respect everybody’s opinion – as long as it is given
in a respectful way, I have to disagree with those out there who find
great fault in Punk’s simply walk away. I am kind of like a ghost that
drifts in and out of WWE, but in my past three years of drifting, I have
never been to a WWE event where Punk was not in considerable pain. Ice
packs, heating pads, and visits to the trainer were as much a part of
his daily routine as eating. sleeping, and wrestling. Performing at that
level, in that degree of pain was only possible when accompanied by the
passion that turned an unlikely Indy kid into one of the greatest WWE
superstars of his generation. Once that passions gone, then so are all
of the things that made him great. I know what it feels like to go
through the motions, and to do what needs to be done solely for the
paycheck. It’s not pretty – and though I have not talked to Punk since
the night before he left, I have to believe he has too much respect for
what he does to let people see him going through the motions. If or when
that day comes when CM punk returns to WWE, I hope it’s with that same
passion that made so many of you care about him to begin with.
