In a recent interview with TJRWrestling Radio, when asked about opponents that he would love to have faced that he never got the chance to get in the ring with, he did mention Punk, specifically. He also noted that he misses seeing him on television every week, and hopes that he makes a comeback one day.
“I miss him on the shows. I hope he makes some kind of comeback one day,” Hart said after discussing three opponents he wishes he had the chance to wrestle.
For the third guy I would have to say CM Punk. Punk would have been a perfect guy for me to work with. He might have to carry me through the match with him as the heel.”
There is little doubt in anyone’s minds that a feud with Punk and Hart would be absolute money, and it really is a shame that we never got the chance to see it play out.
