In 2003 CM Punk sat down for his first shoot interview. At the time he was a major attraction for Ring of Honor wrestling and he had only done a hand full of dark matches with the WWE. But now in 2011 CM Punk is one of the biggest names in pro wrestling. Which makes him a perfect candidate for the first ever Highspots.com's Platinum Series Interview.
Highspots.com has always prided ourselves on our video production but we feel that we can better than before. That is why we are going back in our video library and picking out some of our older shoot interviews and making them better. The era of watching a talking head for 2 hours straight is over. WIth a mixture of classic footage and photographs you will see this once standard interview come to life. We aren't just redoing shoot interviews we are making them better.
Listen as Punk talks about his early days in IWA Mid South to his one match with CZW to his tour of Japan with Zero One. Get a look inside head of a 2003 CM Punk and see the seeds being planted for his future success.
