‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper: CM Punk withdrawal millions of WWE dollars for UFC creates …
April 3, 2015 - WWE
It seems churned martial humanities (MMA) and veteran wrestling — for improved or worse — are synonymous with one another these days.
Though dual totally opposite entities, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) have been mentioned in a same exhale for utterly awhile now, dating behind to Brock Lesnar’s days of withdrawal a scripted play behind to explain a UFC’s heavyweight title.
Now, CM Punk hopes to follow in a footsteps of Lesnar, as he too, left a career in WWE behind to try his palm during one-on-one fight inside a Octagon. It’s a confidant and bold pierce according to one WWE legend, as Roddy Piper tells MMA Junkie he gives Punk — genuine name Phil Brooks — all a credit in a universe for withdrawal behind a career that paid him millions to try something new.
In short, that’s what a genuine male is done of.
“I didn’t know that he was proficient in martial humanities before that. Then we saw him with one of a Gracies — he did a video. You know what? we give him all a honour in a world. we adore a man and he’s got a bravery to leave someplace where we have millions of dollars and to go on and try something else. That’s what a man’s done out of. How he’ll do there? You know, we’ll all watch. He’s a intelligent child and we consider he’ll do great.”
Punk — who now calls Roufusport home base — will demeanour to make his MMA entrance this year opposite an opponent-to-be named.
And while a rest of a cage-fighting village had a mixed reaction to a former wrestler dabbling in MMA, he can count on carrying a subsidy of his former WWE counterparts.
If all else fails, maybe he can go behind and get those WWE millions, much like Lesnar did.
