— It seems like everyone has provided their thoughts on CM Punk leaving WWE to go to the UFC. Maria Kanellis is no exception, as she spoke with Joe Cronin about it.
She said: “Did I think he would leave WWE that way? I had a hunch. He’s a very strong person. When you beat someone up that long without some humanity, it takes a toll. I did that schedule but not like he did. Your body gets beat up. People who want to criticize him, try it for one weekend. Some people’s voices get heard more than others, just like any business. A lot of it has to do with timing. Right place, right time and it’s yours. I think it happens a lot, just like anywhere else.”
