He's gonna be miserable watching Raw on his couch and you know it.
I say he's not a lifer either. He loves his Cubs games and going to cons.
Curious about your opinions on this. Is anyone who leaves and comes back a lifer? Are the Rock, Batista, Brock Lesnar etc lifers? They all cr back, after all.
I don't think Rock is. He's got his movies and his millions, and he messed himself up at last years WM. I think he's content to move on.
Batista is definitely in the Warrior camp. He's a musclehesd looking for a paycheck. He was so gassed at the Rumble, if you didn't see it. Whatever he has on the side, if anything, he'd rather be doing it. Or nothing. Whatever.
I think Brock, though, might be a lifer in the Undertaker sense. He always hated the grind of being a full time wrestler, but his current deal has gotta feel pretty sweet. Show up a few times a year, get a big pop, and take home a fat paycheck. Suits his lazy ass.
I think Punk is different from Bronk in that he came into the business as a long shot, carried that chip on his shoulder, and after that long title reign he's like "what now?". Call it a late career crisis. I don't think he'll Terry Funk it, but I can't see him staying on the sidelines as long as the fans still dig his ****. He knows exactly how small that window is, and he's not gonna let it close just yet
