WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase has given his take on CM Punk returning to WWE and thinks he should have been more like Punk in his own career.
CM Punk shocked the world when he returned to WWE at Survivor Series for the first time in almost ten years. The return came less than three months after CM Punk was publicly fired by AEW for his part in a backstage altercation with Jack Perry at All In.
Speaking on his Everybody’s Got A Pod show, The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase gave his brief thoughts on Punk and noted his relationship with Terry Funk and that if Punk likes to have his say then it means he’s likely to get what he wants:
I don’t know anything about CM Punk’s personality or any of that. All I’m strictly talking about is his work, and his work is really good. I didn’t realize it, but one of my mentors, Terry Funk, had poured into him some. He actually came to Terry’s funeral. I didn’t know that they had that kind of a relationship, and apparently, they did.
Well, you know what the squeaky wheel gets? [Oil]. Yep, it does. Sometimes I think maybe I should have been a little more squeaky.
What Are WWE’s Plans For CM Punk?
Adam Pearce has already made clear that he’s going to attempt to sign CM Punk exclusively to Raw after losing out on Randy Orton to SmackDown. It is widely believed that Punk’s first feud in the company could be with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins.
One report has suggested that WWE could test CM Punk’s attitude by having him lose his first match back in the company in a decade although that remains to be seen.
