This week, CM Punk joined in for an interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to discuss the series debut. He spoke about a variety of topics and was then asked how he feels about the current landscape of professional wrestling. Punk was clear about his thoughts and according to him, it could really use a kick in the d****.

He noted how with the passage of time the content becomes better as it gets older. He said WWE owns the libraries in pro-wrestling and they possess the classic stuff which they do not showcase on WWE Network. He then revealed that he wants to watch the classic bout between Austin Idol and Jerry Lawler in Memphis.

Here is what he had to say:

“I think the older the stuff is the better. I think it’s partly unfortunate that WWE owns the super good libraries in pro wrestling. I think that stuff is classic and they don’t even put it on their network. They are sitting on it.”

He added: “I want to watch Austin Idol versus Jerry Lawler in Memphis. I do think the landscape of pro wrestling in general really needs a kick in the d***. I think we are about there.”
