Just days out from his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) debut in Cleveland, Ohio, former WWE Superstar CM Punk sat down with MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani to discuss his 'unlucky' history in the Quicken Loans Arena and also told an interesting tale in which Bob Holly punched him in the eye.
Despite the fact that he ate a hard strike to the face from Holly, Punk elaborated that the WWE needs more guys like him to enforce the 'slobs' backstage to clean up the mess they make in the locker rooms.
"I just mean theres nobody in that locker room that -- like to me theres nobody in that locker room that's, in a good way, an enforcer. Nobody is gonna pick up the locker room, nobody is gonna clean up after themselves. There just gonna destroy stuff -- it was happening when I was there. I was the guy that was picking stuff up. And that's because Eddie Guerrero always told me 'hey pick up the locker room', 'can you pick up the locker room before you go'? And I'd be like 'yes sir'."
"If you had a guy like Bob in the locker room, you're not trying to do that sh**.
Punk, however, is no longer with the company and could care less about the state of the WWE's locker room.
"But I'm not there, who gives a sh**?"
Punk will meet Gall on the main card of UFC 203 live on pay-per-view (PPV), from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio tomorrow night. Remember to join us this Saturday evening for our live coverage of UFC 203.
