On Saturday in Inglewood, CA (metro Los Angeles), CM Punk wrestled in his second WWE match since returning when he defeated Dominik Mysterio. After his victory, Punk got on the mic and said the following to fans…
“Like all of you, I’m disappointed that Rhea Ripley wasn’t here tonight. I was looking forward to hoisting her up and bodyslamming her to cause California to break down to San Andreas and fall into the ocean. Maybe next time.
At the end of the month in January, I got to the Royal Rumble and dammit, if there was a sign in this building I’d point to it right now. I’m gonna point to my heart, that’s where all you reside till I walk into the Rumble and walk out the winner. That’s me, finishing what I started and it’s not over then cause I’m going to main event WrestleMania. And that’s not me finishing my story, sorry Cody, that’s just me getting started.” (quote courtesy of RingsideNews.com)
Just prior to the show, Twitter account @WrestleTix noted that 13,580 tickets were distributed for the Inglewood event and it was said to have been the second biggest house show of the year after the one at Madison Square Garden on December 26th.
Anyways, here’s CM Punk with a speech after his match tonight 🔥
