Bully Ray: CM Punk On WWE Backstage Gives Wrestling Fans Hope
— SiriusXM Busted Open (@BustedOpenRadio) November 13, 2019
CM Punk made a shocking return to the world of WWE last night, as he appeared on WWE Backstage, where he announced that he would be appearing periodically as a staff member. Speaking on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray said that wrestling fans now have hope, and likened the situation to a broken up couple slowly working things out.
“You’re broken up with somebody for five years, but you want to get back together with that other person,” he said. “And you’ve been reaching out for a long time, you don’t get an answer. And then all of the sudden you send a text that says ‘Hey, just wanted to reach out and say hello, hope you’re doing good,’ and you finally get a return text that says ‘I’m good, hope all is well with you also,’ does that give you hope? That’s what wrestling fans have right now when it comes to CM Punk.”
Bully Ray went on to explain his analogy a bit, saying that Punk has finally reached out, even if he’s with FOX. “Yes, he’s working for FOX, analyzing WWE television, but he’s somewhat back in. He rubbed elbows with a couple of his buds last night. We know he’s friends with Renee, we know he’s got a good relationship with Joe…maybe being back around a couple of the people that you like to be back around will help him through this.”
