In a new video interview on the red carpet, CM Punk was asked about Batista’s upcoming movie, The Man With The Iron Fists.
“You should check out The Man With The Iron Fists/ My buddy Dave Batista’s in it, he plays Brass Body… Dave, you owe me big time for this, you really do… yo do.”
Punk was also asked if he had any fond memories of Batista.
“Oh yeah, I don’t know if I can really get into them a lot here on the red carpet. It might have to be an after-hours thing. But me and Dave [have] got some stories, yeah… good guy, big heart… I’ve wrestled Dave so many times, he’s put scars on my head. He’s blackened my eye, and vice versa. If Dave ever wanted to make a comeback, I’d welcome him with open arms.”
Punk later mentioned that he was the WWE Champion and was the best in the world. The interviewer asked, “better than Dave?”
“Yes. He knows that, that’s why he’s doing movies now.”
