CM Punk Says Being A Babyface Is Hard Work

When CM Punk left WWE in 2014, but many fans stuck behind him and chanted his name during many WWE shows. His AEW debut last year solidified his strong connection with wrestling fans. Although CM Punk is adored by many, the straight edge star actually prefers to be hated on television.

Speaking with Screenrant, CM Punk discussed his strong connection with his fanbase and compared the difference between being a babyface and a heel. According to Punk, he much prefers to be the bad guy.

I think I have a currency with the audience just having been around for so long, coming from the Indies, going to the old WWF, and you know being around the block. Leaving, coming back after seven years, there is a connection that I have. I don’t necessarily enjoy being a good guy. I feel like it’s hard work. It’s a lot easier to get people to dislike you. But I feel it would be wasteful to, as I said, discard this currency that I have with the audience because it is, I feel, a special connection.

You know, they’re chanting my name for seven years. I came back. They’re still stoked about it. So I feel like every time I’m in the ring is special to me and I don’t want to squander that, and I feel like it’s just a giant party with a bunch of your friends, you know? I just want to have a good time with them.

Fans have missed Punk since he’s been out of action due to a severe foot injury. He recently said that he’s learning how to walk on his own again after weeks of being unable to. As for when fans can expect to see him back in a wrestling ring, only time will tell.
