Alberto Del Rio joined The Roman Show to talk about his new role as President of Combate Americas. During the interview he discussed his friendship with CM Punk, if he wants to fight for his promotion and challenges he has faced in recent months. They sent us these highlights, you can listen to the interview in the video above:

CM Punk:

"He had the cojones to transition from pro wrestling to MMA I know a lot of people say he didn't do well, but he did well and it was his first fight and first experience, especially in the biggest MMA organization in the world. It wasn't an easy fight for CM Punk. I think he needs to do it again. He needs to train and learn from that first fight. He will come back even better."

If he would have Punk fight for Combate Americas:

"I would love to have him fight for this organization or any fighter with talent. They are welcomed to come and fight. They have my number and I'll give them a job."

Balancing his pro wrestling and MMA career:

"It's going to be difficult but not impossible. My main priority will be Combate Americas. But I will be wrestling maybe once a week. I won't do as much as I was doing in the other company. I want to make this company a big one."
