CM Punk has said that he’ll be involved in a charity in Chicago, and he also said “it feels good” to be retired.
According to Wrestling Inc a few days ago, Punk was asked about being retired at age 35 and responded with a “it feels good” answer.
“I get to do fun stuff like bowl and paint chairs and play whiffle ball with Bill Murray,” Punk said of the Chicago charity he’s involved in.
“It was super fun and for a great cause. You’ve got athletes and actresses and musicians and all kinds of people painting chairs. I’m super happy to be a part of it.”
Punk is part of a public art project that commemorates Wrigley Field’s 100-year anniversary.
Recently, Punk was mentioned by Stephanie McMahon during “Payback.” She wanted the WWE World Heavyweight Title from Daniel Bryan and said, “The fans want you to quit just like CM Punk did.”
And weeks ago, wrestler Mick Foley posted an update on Facebook, saying he sympathizes with Punk.
“I know what it feels like to go through the motions, and to do what needs to be done solely for the paycheck. It’s not pretty – and though I have not talked to Punk since the night before he left, I have to believe he has too much respect for what he does to let people see him going through the motions. If or when that day comes when CM punk returns to WWE, I hope it’s with that same passion that made so many of you care about him to begin with,” he said.
He added: “I have never been to a WWE event where Punk was not in considerable pain. Ice packs, heating pads, and visits to the trainer were as much a part of his daily routine as eating. sleeping, and wrestling. Performing at that level, in that degree of pain was only possible when accompanied by the passion that turned an unlikely Indy kid into one of the greatest WWE superstars of his generation.”
