Ryback Pokes Fun At CM Punk’s First MMA Defeat, Says Punk Didn't Try In Their Match

It's no secret in the world of professional wrestling that former WWE Intercontinental Champion Ryback and former professional wrestling turned MMA fighter CM Punk aren't exactly the best of friends.

On his podcast, Conversation With The Big Guy, Ryback poked a little fun at Punk, while talking about what he would do if he lost like Punk did in his professional MMA debut. Ryback has had discussions with Bellator MMA about potentially competing.

"That would be my backup plan if I ever went into MMA and just totally pulled a CM Punk and got my ass kicked. I would just come back as Skip Sheffield. 'My mind's f--ked up,' and then, opening match, sell some merchandise, 'yep, yep, yep, what it do?', f--king Over The Shoulder Boulder Holder here and there, and f--king wave to the kids,” said Ryback.

The former WWE superstar also took more shots at Punk, claiming that Punk did not put any real effort into their main event match a few years ago at WWE Hell In A Cell.

"My favorite, I think for me the proudest moment outside of winning the I.C. title, and the boys in the back waiting there and getting the round of applause, outside of Gorilla [position]," Ryback added, "I think my first Hell In A Cell match with CM Punk because that was my first main event outside of doing live events, working them. And which was thrown together last minute, obviously. And I never liked any of our matches, but that was more on him not wanting to put effort into doing it and that's the truth. And I was fully developed at that time and could have done anything."

Ryback is currently one half of the Wrestle Pro Tag Team Champions (with Pat Buck) and he will be appearing at Maryland Championship Wrestling’s “Autumn Armageddon Tour” on Saturday, November 5 and he will be taking on Sean Studd.
