I’m pretty stoked. As a kid, I worshiped that guy. In a field dominated by beer-guzzling meatheads, it was cathartic as Hell to see a guy representing my brand of masculinity (Punk was vegan, straight edge, read comics, and hung out with the guys from Rancid) not just holding his own, but going on to win The World Heavyweight Championship belt (THREE times!).
I couldn’t be more thrilled for the opportunity to pay my respect to the greatest WWE character of all time. I hope you’ll join me on Monday!
