Daniel Garcia was a guest on AEW Unrestricted, where he spoke about getting the opportunity to wrestle against CM Punk on AEW Rampage.
“That was pretty cool. CM Punk is someone who I obviously watched for probably 15 years of my life at this point. I really looked up to that guy for a very long time. He’s one of my favorite wrestlers and still probably is. He’s my mom’s favorite wrestler too. When he came in, I was thinking, man it would be cool if I got to wrestle CM Punk. It would be like a dream come true for me. When me and 2point0 attacked him on his second appearance back I think, it was the first time there was any physical contact with CM Punk in the ring in 7 years. Then we didn’t touch upon that for a couple of weeks. I was like, maybe I won’t get to wrestle him for a little bit. Then they announced on Dynamite when I was just sitting backstage, and he called me out. I checked my phone and I was like, I guess I’m wrestling CM Punk on Rampage this week. I wrestled him and it was a great learning experience for me. It taught me a lot about simple, easy storytelling. Not everything has to be hard wrestling. It’s very easy if you let it be.”
