Paul Heyman Talks About Punk...

Discussion in 'General WWE' started by Neptune, Oct 16, 2015.

  1. A few days old, but I thought it was funny. I don't see Punk doing anything in UFC let alone ever coming back to the WWE.

    Punk knowing how to succeed when the odds are against him:

    "Phil Brooks is not in his mid-thirties, he's cruising rapidly into his late-thirties. He doesn't have a documentable athletic background. Do I know that he has been in the gym with the best Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in the world for several years? Sure I do, but he's never been in a competition. I don't know of any sports he played in high school. He went straight from high school into the wrestling world so there's no college background there. Brock Lesnar was an NCAA Division I champion, who was a champion in junior college, he was a bad ass wrestling in high school and he was wrestling since he was five years old. He was a competitive athlete so that's a different jump to make."

    "Phillip Brooks does not have that background. It makes it all the more improbable, which is exactly why he's so driven to do it. Because he looks in the mirror and he sees not only a rebel and an uncompromising spokesman for the beliefs that are near and dear to him, but he sees someone that will defy conventional wisdom and pull off miracles if that's what it takes because he has one shot in life and he wants to do something quite special with it."

    A possible WWE return for Punk:

    "As of right now, ain't no way he's ever going back. I don't know if I can make that same statement in the future. I know his mindset is there's absolutely no way. As for his mindset where he is in his journey, I think every moment he takes a breath is one moment closer to his debut. I think the only thing that he sees in his mind right now, 24/7 he is envisioning the moment they lock that Octagon and the referee says 'fight'."
     
  2. Fuck punk. Can't wait for his gay ass to get beat up. Love the wrestler, hate the person.

  3. I hope he eventually captures the UFC Championship. I know there's a large amount of odds set against him ever doing that, but stranger things have happened in life. As obnoxious as Punk can be in real life, I love seeing people defy the odds and silence the critics, and I would especially love seeing him show a bunch of control freaks like WWE that he can be very successful without them.

  4. Three things are going to happen.

    1. Punk gets fed a absolute scrub in his first match, and his second and third match before finally getting his ass beat by a legitimate fighter.

    2. Punk gets his ass handed to him in his first match.

    3. Punk never debuts and this all fizzles out.

  5. I'm gonna go with one of the first 2
     
  6. I wouldn't be surprised if he did succeed in the UFC, but yeah, Punk will prolly be fed a total rookie in his first match and then hopefully move on to fighting legit dudes.

    As far as his return to WWE goes, it wouldn't surprise me if he came back by WM 35.

  7. I can't see him coming back.. I mean yes, he is a HUGE hypocrite but the only thing that would bring him back is the need for money and I don't think he will be needing it anytime soon, if ever.
     
  8. I don't think it's just about the money for Punk, wrestling is in his blood. If he manages to ignore it and never come back, then kudos to him.

  9. I can see him going to Japan before going back to the wwe
     
  10. It's funny a few people continue to support this guy when he's done nothing entertaining in a few year's.. He's just a miserable prick and people like it. Maybe because his fans are miserable themselves.

    How this guy is still in the news i'll never know. The next time he makes any headlines should be when he first get's his ass kicked in the UFC. Other than that, i don't see the point in reporting anything he does.. It's not like he was a major star in WWE, he was a mid-carder for more than half his career.
     
  11. And it's funny how you used to call Punk the GOAT superstar and now you act like he doesn't even exist.

  12. CM Punk should of gone to Hollywood. I can see him being in movies or on a tv show.
     
  13. I was a Punk fan, heck I got a few shirts to prove it. But the dude is a true to life d-bag. He knows how to entertain people but I thought he was acting. I had no idea he was just being himself in the ring. When I found that out, I was no longer a fan. I wont say he sucks, he is a great wrestler and a great entertainer, but he is a total prick. I am shocked he got someone to marry him, specially after bashing marriage a few years back.
     
  14. Well, they all eventually come back, don't they? (Well, except for Randy Savage, but that's because they refused to let him.) Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Sable, and especially Bret Hart all left on bad terms and yet they all returned eventually.

    I can't see it happening anytime soon, but I can't help but think Punk will eventually want to finish up his pro wrestling career in a proper manner. And if we're talking Vince, he'd take Punk back in a heartbeat. HHH? Debatable. He seems petty in regards to personal grudges judging from what certain folks in his circle have said about him before.
     
  15. I would. Punk's chances of succeeding in MMA are about as likely as a Tuna beating a shark in a fight.

    MMA is not something you jump into in your mid 30s.

  16. It worked out well for Randy Couture. Granted, Punk doesn't have the same background as Couture, but still, I can't guarantee if he'll fall on his ass during his time in UFC.
     
  17. Vince is a people whore, he'll take anyone back... Well, not Randy but ya know... Stephanie as to do with that.

    Coming back to wrestler, I don't see it. Maybe as a manager. He would be good at that.
     
  18. It's more that Vince is a shrewd businessman who will always be willing to do business with someone again as long as there's money to be made from it. I've never completely bought the story that Vince hated Savage on account of him banging Stephanie when she was only 14, but that's another topic.

    And no way does Punk only bother to return as a manager lol. If he ever gets the wrestling itch again, it'll be to step into the ring and perform, not just merely coach another wrestler on-screen, and who knows what the roster will look like if or when (I personally say when) that ever happens.

  19. I guess so but I still can't see him going back at all. He is clearly very stubborn. Maybe when he gets inducted.
     
  20. He is stubborn yes. But at this rate, unless punks returns and shows respect, he's not getting into the HOF
