Get ready to hear a lot about UFC 203 as former WWE Superstar CM Punk makes his mixed martial arts debut against Mickey Gall this Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio.
A lot of the focus is on how badly most people think the 37-year-old is going to look in the Octagon, which might be a reason to not have your wife watch the fight. And that could be part of why Punk told Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com that April Brooks, who you know as AJ Lee, won’t be in the crowd.
Punk said, “We’ve discussed where she’s going to be. She’s like ‘well, where do you want me?’ Because for her to be out in the crowd… she’s a familiar face, you know what I mean? I just don’t want anybody bothering her, I don’t want people yelling junk at her and stupid stuff. That’s my wife, obviously, so I’d imagine she’ll probably watch it in the back. That’s just so she’s comfortable. I don’t need anybody cat calling my wife.”
