Roman Reigns Speaks About Fighting CM Punk in The Future
Roman Reigns stated that he has no interest in fighting CM Punk, on the Complex. He would only do it if the fans want to see him fight CM Punk.
“So I answered a question similar to this a while ago, and it falls back to what our audience wants to see,” Reigns said. “If our audience wanted to see it and they were clamoring for it, couldn’t shut up about it, and all the stars aligned, as a businessman and as a performer who was trying to seek out the very best for the audience and try to captivate, I wouldn’t say no.
“But I mean, on a personal level, it doesn’t do anything for me,” he continued. “That’s not going to elevate me at all. He’s older now. I haven’t really seen a full match. I’ve seen a clip or two.
And to me, a step or two has been lost. Then, also, he got his whooped in the UFC”. It is true that CM Punk has a horrible MMA career. He competed twice in the UFC and lost is spectacular fashion. Roman Reigns went on to say that CM Punk is not as skilled as he used to be as well.
“I don’t think anybody really believes someone 200 pounds soaking wet with no explosive bone in their body could ever really do anything to me. I’m 6’3”, 265 pounds, a legitimate athlete who can throw some weight around and has been on the gridiron at the highest level.
D1. All ACC. I probably would’ve maintained in the NFL if my health issues didn’t happen when I was 22 years old,” Roman Reigns explained. “So, I mean, when it comes down to it, I’ll throw him and pretty much the rest of that roster out the club no problem. They’re just little brothers, you know?”
