Last night, Rey Mysterio shared a memory of a 2002 match he had with CM Punk and Eddie Guerrero for IWA Mid-South (you can see the whole match on the promotion’s YouTube channel here):
In a sign of respect for both men, Punk commented with this great story about the match, and what it meant to a young indie kid to work with the WCW/WWE legends:
It’s also the second time in as many weeks wrestling’s prodigal son has talked about his old job. Which got more than a few fans excited about the possibility we might hear more stories and commentary from Punk.
Don’t count on it:
So more lying snakes and unethical fugazis can sue me for telling the truth? Hard pass. ♀️ https://t.co/vH9sY7PgrU— Coach (@CMPunk) April 19, 2019
He also opened up a bit about his emotions while dealing with a guy who trolled him about that response:
I have cried, yeah. Probably will some more. You cool? https://t.co/WVfBZXKjzQ— Coach (@CMPunk) April 19, 2019
That devolved into Punk telling the guy to meet him at his MMA gym for a fight, so... yeah.
It’s still a great Eddie story, though!
