- Speaking of Foley, the pre-sale for his shows in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne starts on Monday. You can get more details here.
"It's definitely a bucket-list kind of thing," Punk said of Bautista's MMA bout. "I think it's awesome, too. Dave just wanted the experience. He wanted to fight even if it was just one time. It was something that he wanted to do. He loves it so he put his mind to it and did it, and I think that amazing. I don't think anybody can criticize that. He has no delusions of grandeur. He's not trying to get a big, fat UFC contract. He's not trying to coast on his name from the WWE. He's just fighting because he wanted to experience it.
"The haters, if you're doing something right you're going to get criticized. I don't think there's a whole lot of people who can do what Dave did, and those are the ones that are going to criticize him. To me, those are the funniest ones. They say funny stuff. They make the funniest comments and they're fun to laugh at."
