CM Punk says he wants to emulate former WWE Superstar. The Former WWE Champion was full of praise and appreciation for the star.
CM Punk was one of the biggest stars to ever grace the WWE. He has won almost every major accolade in the company and is regarded as one of the best to have ever stepped foot inside the squared circle. However, the Voice of the Voiceless is looking to make his name beyond wrestling.
Speaking to Movie Trivia Schmoedown’s Kristian Harloff, Punk spoke about his acting ambition. He mentioned Dave Batista and how the former WWE star has been pushing himself with different roles and how he wants the same for himself.
CM Punk says he wants to emulate former WWE Superstar
“I watch guys, friends of mine, Dave Bautista, do these huge blockbuster roles but also do roles that are challenging to him because he wants to grow and be a better actor. I just want to follow in his footsteps, you know what I mean? And it’s not because I want to be rich or to be famous but I see how fun acting is and I see how playing dress-up, essentially, how fun that can be. When stuff’s hard, I tend to want to do it more and be good at it. I have that personality trait.”
Punk recently appeared in the horror-thriller movie ‘Jakob’s Wife’ earlier this year. Batista on the other hand, is awaiting the release of his next film, Dune, which will hit theatres in the United States in October.
As far as Wrestling goes, Batista has retired from the business, His last match was against Triple H at Wrestlemania 35. He was due an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame last year. However, the Pandemic and a scheduling conflict has postponed it to the future.
Punk has not wrestled an official wrestling match since walking out of the WWE back in 2014. However, he is widely expected to finally return on next week’s episode of AEW Rampage in Chicago, Illinois (his hometown).
