Former WWE Champion CM Punk has revealed what he thinks of the new Raw Underground concept that was debuted this past Monday.
CM Punk was part of last night’s SummerSlam 1992 watchalong on FS1 along with Renee Young, Booker T, Finn Bálor and Bret Hart, and the topic of the new fight club gimmick came up.
“I absolutely loved it. I want to see Nia Jax in there. They should get more women in there. Let us see some bodies getting broken.
“The idea that Shane McMahon and all these people would be in the Performance Center for the whole three hours and they cut into what they’re doing in various segments is pretty cool. Three hours of no holds barred fights and strippers, that’s all I want to see.
“Renee, I think you should fight Bayley. This is the end of the world anyway, with the pandemic and everything. This is just going to degenerate into gladiator fights again.”
Well there we have it, Punk seems to be a fan of the new concept that has divided opinion to say the least. The most accurate description would probably be that the idea is a good one, but the execution and presentation needs to improve going forward.
We recently put together a list of dream Raw Underground matches that we’d love to see, which you can read here.
