“I’m going to call out Thunder Rosa. I was a nervous wreck the whole time I’m pacing the hallway that can’t sit still. I can’t watch the monitor, I can’t talk to people, you know, I’m running around. Then from waiting to go out waiting for my music to hit and she just looks at me. She goes ‘Hey, welcome back’. And like I almost just burst into tears. I was just like, you son of a bitch. Yeah, so she got me pretty good with that. I don’t think that was her intention. But man, she got me.”

We cannot believe ‘The Best in the World’ actually cried. Punk’s debut not only touched him but also his fans. The entire world of wrestling was in anticipation of Punk’s return to wrestling. We cannot deny that we, too, shed a tear or two.
