Former WWE champion CM Punk appeared on Abe Kanan Show's Sirius XM satellite radio show this week and spoke with 77-year-old Thomas Dotterer, the liquor store robbery victim who was shot in the eye, but said the worst thing that happened all week was Punk losing to The Rock at the Royal Rumble.
Dotterer was talking about the robbery returning to work right after being released from the hospital - when he was surprised by a guest caller, CM Punk.
Dotterer said he’s a wrestling fan going back to the 1940s when he watched Gorgeous George with his father. He said he follows Ring of Honor and TNA Wrestling and appreciates Punk’s success. He said Punk’s hard work and dedication is why he was so upset that The Rock beat him.
Punk then offered Dotterer to be his special guest when WWE is in Syracuse for a live event on March 3. Here's audio from the appearance:
