The biggest and most talked about topic in today's professional wrestling industry is the rumored AEW debut of former WWE Star CM Punk, believed to take place this Friday night on the First Dance special episode of AEW Rampage from inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. Speaking with Movie Trivia Schmoedown, Punk discussed his Hollywood career and how he has yet to be given huge blockbuster roles but that he wants to grow and be a better actor as well as follow in the footsteps of WWE legend Dave Batista.
CM Punk said:
“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.”
WWE legend Batista then took to his Twitter and responded to Punk's comments by saying that Punk will be bigger in films than he was in pro wrestling. Punk then took to his Twitter account once again and responded to the comments made by Batista by thanking his good friend.
