CM Punk reveals funny story with comedian Robin Williams
CM Punk shared a bizarre story about his first meeting with legendary comedian Robin Williams in a recent interview.
Former WWE champion Punk has close relations with “Lars Frederiksen and The Bastards” and “The Old Firm Casuals” lead singer, Lars Frederiksen. After their friendship, Punk was staying over at Frederiksen’s house when he was introduced to comedian Robin Williams.
Talking to Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Punk shared the incident:
“Lars was very good friends with Robin Wiliams and there’s one time I was sleeping upstairs in Lars’ house,” Punk said. “I like to sleep, ladies and gentlemen. To this day, if I don’t have to get up and do anything, I don’t have to set an alarm, I just sleep until I wake up. I was doing that at Lars’ and I woke up because somebody had jumped on top of me as I was sleeping. As I wake up and I turn around I’m like ‘It’s f***ing Robin Williams.’ What do you do? This is the first time I’ve ever met Robin Williams. I think as the story goes, he was like ‘CM Punk? The wrestler? He’s sleeping upstairs right now?’ And Lars was like yeah, and Robin being who Robin is, he was like ‘F*** yeah, let’s Jimmy Superfly Snuka this motherf***er.’
“He runs up and he splashes me in the bed, I wake up and I immediately think it’s Lars so I just start charging after him. Half way through running the down the stairs I’m like I’m pretty sure that’s Robin Williams but I don’t give a f***, f*** this motherf***er now. I half a** tackle Robin Williams, he’s like trying to run out to the street and I just picked him up and I’m airplane spinning Robin Williams. Then, I put him down and he’s like ‘I got to go,’ and he just like f***s off, runs away and I’m standing there like that’s the damndest way to wake up and remember walking back into the house and being like ‘Was that Robin Williams? Alright cool. Very cool.’ Nobody else in the world has that story.”
