CM Punk never planned to be a WWE star?
CM Punk recently spoke to Windy City Live about his aspirations as a pro wrestler.
He stated that he never saw himself as a WWE superstar, he expected to go to Japan and ply his craft there:
“Obviously, I watched WWF as a kid, but when I made the conscious decision – WWF was never the end goal. I romanticized about Japanese wrestling. There was two companies in Japan, it was called All Japan and New Japan, and that was my thing.”
He went on to say:
“I was more about going over there and being a star over there, then coming home and just being completely – you can walk down the street and nobody knows you.”
