CM Punk appeared on on The Jon Anik and Kenny Florian Podcast on Monday and talked about a variety of MMA and wrestling topics. Punk shared his thoughts on Dusty Rhodes’ passing, saying that he loved Dusty and that the late WWE Hall of Famer was “always super good” to him.
I loved Dusty and Dusty loved me,” Punk said. “For some reason, early on in my career I was branded an old soul and I had a lot of older timers tell me ‘You should have been born 20 years earlier, you would have been great in my time…I developed a rapport with guys like Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes. A lot of these guys like Dusty, got hired with WWE and he always went to bat for me. I wrestled Dusty in one of my last matches on the indies in 2005 and it was pretty bizarre. He was always super good to me.
