Former WWE Star and UFC fighter CM Punk recently spoke with Graham Matthews of Bleacher Report, where he promoted the brand-new “Jakob’s Wife” horror movie that was recently released theatrically as well as digitally. Punk was asked if his wife AJ Lee watches his movies with him. Punk said AJ Lee’s not a horror movie fan, so she’ll watch it just because he is in it, but she is not a fan of blood and gore and being scared at all.
CM Punk said, “She’s not a horror movie fan, so she’ll watch it because I’m in it, but she’s not a fan of blood and gore and being scared at all.” “She’s the kind of person that will watch this film and have nightmares, so I’ll probably have to make her pancakes the next day.”
Punk then talked about how people can overshare and jinx stuff, most especially in TV and movies when stuff is finally coming out, but at that point he has already moved on to the next one, two, three or four projects.
CM Punk said, “Not only do I feel people overshare and that people can jinx stuff, I especially feel that in TV and movie land when stuff is finally coming out, I’ve already moved on to the next one, two, three, four projects.” “You’re always working on something next and you kind of get your flowers… Jakob’s Wife is coming out Friday and now I get to talk about it and do it. We filmed that a year ago, that’s how these things work.”
Punk also talked about revealing during his recent Q&A sessions with fans on Twitter that he does not watching pro wrestling these days and that he only watched WWE TV in the past number of years for him to prepare for the now-nixed WWE Backstage show. CM Punk also said he watched AJ Lee’s stuff the year after he was already gone when she was wrapping up.
CM Punk said, “I watched my wife’s stuff the year after I was already gone when she was wrapping up.” “But I watched WWE television for the first time in six, seven years to be able to formulate an opinion for Backstage.”
CM Punk then said he does not keep contact with anyone in the pro wrestling business aside from Renee Paquette (F.K.A. Renee Young).
CM Punk said, “I do not [currently watch wrestling].” “Whatever I know, I know strictly off of social media just because it’s huge on social media. If someone does something relatively newsworthy, it’s in the feed, so I’ll keep up with it that way. I talk to Renee, is she in the business? I don’t even know anymore.”
