WWE News: Ernest Miller’s Critique of CM Punk

Miller, who has a background in both wrestling and martial arts, commented on Punk’s performance in the UFC. After leaving WWE in 2014, CM Punk ventured into the world of mixed martial arts, joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

However, his tenure there was less than stellar, with two losses, one of which was later overturned due to his opponent’s failed drug test.

Miller didn’t mince words when discussing Punk’s fighting skills. He stated, “I can look at someone and tell whether or not they can fight. When I looked at CM Punk fight, his real fight, I got 12-year-old kids who would knock CM Punk out. Make sure you write that.”

He went on to express his confusion about how Punk, after exposing himself as a subpar fighter, was still able to return to wrestling and maintain a tough persona.

The Contrast Between Wrestling and Real Fighting

This statement from Miller highlights a significant contrast between the world of professional wrestling and actual combat sports.

In wrestling, the emphasis is often on storytelling and character, whereas in combat sports like MMA, the focus is on actual fighting ability and technique.
