Eric Bischoff Felt Sorry For CM Punk During WWE Segment

CM Punk

Eric Bischoff has given his thoughts on CM Punk’s return to television.

On March 25th, CM Punk returned to WWE Raw in his hometown of Chicago. On the show, Punk was joined by Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre and neither man has any real love for the other.

What followed was an explosive segment where the trio traded insults with Punk daring McIntyre to mention Vince McMahon by name. When all was said and done, Punk confirmed he’d be on commentary for the WrestleMania match between Rollins and McIntyre.

Speaking on 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff said while he and everyone else were happy to see Punk, he also felt bad for him because he couldn’t get physically involved.

“Sitting through that, I actually felt bad, I empathized with Punk because he’s not going to be … he can’t wrestle,” said Bischoff. “You can’t really do anything physical in the ring. Obviously, the audience wanted to see him, they wanted him to be a real part of the show, it’s evident, but that’s a tough spot to be in. It’s a tough spot to be in when you can’t do anything and everybody knows you can’t do it.”
