Mick Foley: "CM Punk Was Damn Good And Damn Over"

Punk will be just as over when he returns too, Foley believes

WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley has responded to Roman Reigns' comments about CM Punk.

The Universal Champion was recently asked about WWE booking returning part-time stars like John Cena in main event spots and Reigns used the opportunity to take a shot at CM Punk, claiming The Straight Edge Superstar "was not as good or as over" as Cena or The Rock.

Mick Foley has defended Punk, though, writing: "CM PUNK WAS DAMN GOOD, AND DAMN OVER. With one interview he changed the course of the wrestling business. He had great matches with a wide variety of opponents on a nightly basis. When/if he returns to wrestling, he will once again be damn good and damn over. @CMPunk."

Foley and CM Punk previously had a short rivalry in late 2012 and they were originally scheduled to be team captains in the traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match at the November pay-per-view. 

Reigns and Foley's comments about Punk have emerged ahead of the 42-year-old's expected return to wrestling at the August 20 edition of AEW Rampage from Chicago's United Center.
