Rey Mysterio has been discussing his relationship with CM Punk.
The Lucha Legend and CM Punk might have taken very different paths during their careers, but through it all, they’ve remained in touch. The pair worked together in WWE as far back as 2010, and it seems a bond was forged.
Appearing on K100 with Konnan and Disco Inferno, Mysterio was asked about Punk’s recent return to WWE, and the Hall of Famer revealed they always check in on each other.
“I was texting Punk back and forth every now and then. We would say ‘hi’ and ‘what’s up?’ Always been, not super close, but connected. Watching Dominik’s career take off, we would constantly shoot each other texts.
Punk was a big rival during the whole Mysterio family on board with my daughter’s birthday, six or seven years old at the time, it’s cool to revisit all that and now see the growth of the Mysterio family and how we’re all still connected in some way,”
