CM Punk Would Have Had Asuka Mist Becky Lynch On WWE Raw, Thinks Otis Should Dump Mandy Rose

CM Punk would have had Asuka go full heel on WWE Raw.

Becky Lynch announcing her pregnancy and relinquishing the WWE Raw Women's Title to Asuka on Raw was a touching moment with genuine reactions. But if CM Punk had the pencil, he would have turned it into a pro wrestling angle.

"There's obviously a void," Punk said of Lynch's upcoming hiatus on WWE Backstage. "It's next woman up, which I always like, the personal competition. It was a missed opportunity, Asuka is really happy, and then the mist right in the face. I'm a heel at heart, that's what I would have done. Then you've got this evil woman at the top of the mountain, chasing this woman and looking for revenge for Becky."

WWE has a history of turning real life moments into angles, with a recent example being Dean Ambrose turning on Seth Rollins the same night Roman Reigns announced his hiatus due to Leukemia.

Later in the show, when Otis joined as a special guest, Punk stated that Otis should drop Mandy Rose now that he's Mr. Money in the Bank, calling her "a dime a dozen."

Elsewhere during the show, Punk reviewed the recently released WWE ice cream bars. You can view his comments by clicking here.
