CM Punk Speaks About Writing Stuff on His Shoes
“I think one of the great things like the connection the wrestlers have in AEW with the fans is special.
I like to f**k with people, you know what I mean? I like to have fun and throw in little Easter eggs here and there. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I was looking at punk bands and they’d be wearing another punk band’s shirt, you know what I mean?” Punk said.
“Because it’s not about being, ‘Oh, I need to be a better band. I’ve got to hold everybody down.’ It’s about high tide raises all boats, like, everybody else. “Everyone is so excited coming to these AEW shows.
The fans are so into every single wrestler that walks through the curtain,” he continued. “I’m just trying to have fun with it really, honestly. So like, I’m scribbling on my shoes and everyone is trying to decode everything, and it just gives another layer of the connection that we have with our fans and it’s fun”.
CM Punk also spoke about wearing new vans. Most people might not have noticed this, but CM Punk has been wearing a new pair of vans every week. “Never really been a huge shoe guy, but having to be on television every week, I figure, you can’t wear the same pair of shoes.
So, my wife would famously wear Converse. I didn’t want to go that route, and Vans, I remember being a skate shoe,” Punk noted. “I was a little skateboard kid. So, to me, if I had a style, this would probably be it.
It’s a little more simple and when they do throw colors into some stuff, it really pops. I just remember all of the skate kids wearing the vans”. CM Punk’s last appearance for WWE was back in 2014. He was one of WWE’s top wrestlers when he left and many hardcore wrestling fans waited for his return.
