TMZ caught up with Punk and asked him who he believes should win the Men's Royal Rumble. Punk replied, "I think it's a no brainer. Keith Lee is a good guy. They need stars. They can build a star with Keith Lee."
When asked how Keith can win, Punk joked, "Just shoot throw everybody over the top rope."
Punk picked Lee to win during his WWE Backstage appearance on Tuesday. Lee took to social media to express his appreciation for Punk's comments following WWE Backstage.
Hmm....should I ever have the privilege of meeting Mr. Punk, I shall be certain to express my gratitude.— Final Lee (@RealKeithLee) January 22, 2020
The sentiment is most appreciated. https://t.co/Qygtb0izxF
Punk was also asked to handicap Brock Lesnar's chances. Punk stated, "Brock is like me, he works once a month and he's smart about his time and doesn't want to wrestle for an hour."
Brock is slated to enter the Royal Rumble at number one.
