He admitted, “Oh, I feel like trash, I’ll be honest.” He further said, “I’m 42 years old and I haven’t taken bumps in seven-plus years.

“I think a lot of wrestlers are feeling this right now. The pandemic, when it shut everything down and it essentially killed house-show business — they’re not on the road, they’re not taking bumps Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday — I think everybody kind of felt this awfulness of ‘Oh man, I’m wrestling less-frequently than I used to,’ (but) it feels worse somehow.” 

 Punk answers about his reason to return

Punk also revealed that one of the major reasons he returned was because of the appealing schedule to the wrestlers. He explained how the pandemic made some changes in the schedule for the wrestlers. This change made a proper balance for wrestlers.
