    im sorry but this is way to far going vegan (i know im going to thumps down for this) but cm punk needs to wake up because its not healthy going from meat eater to vegan because your body will start to miss the meat juice and most of the times if this happens you will take bills or else u get really weak. im sorry for the long comment but its true you cant go from carnivor to herbavor.

      I haven't watched the video yet, so I don't know if this has been elaborated on in the interview, but perhaps he weaned himself onto a vegan diet? I don't know myself off the top of my head if you're right about the body having to adjust to such a drastic change, it sounds feasible, but maybe he let his body get accustomed to it before diving in head-first.

      And on top of all that he's stealing D.Bry's gimmick!

      I’m sorry but you are VERY much mistaken. I went vegetarian when I was 8, I’m now 34 and have 1) never taken a vitamin pill in my life 2) never missed meat 3) never been healthier, I’m 6′ 2″ and weigh 18 stone. You have no idea what you’re talking about

      • Johnny D

        Vegetarian isn't vegan!

      • Van

        a vegetarian is somebody who doesn't eat meat.a vegan is someone who doesn't have any type of product that came from an animal

    • outkazt09

      Its only hard for mentally weak people. He is one of few that must be strong minded.

    • Guy Landau

      I think that if Punk went Vegan it's probably because (like Matt Hardy a couple of years back) he discovered Red Meat isn't good for him, and/or a doctor recommended it as a healthier lifestyle for him.

      The “juices”? You’re an idiot.

        You’re an idiot

      It’s a short leap going from vegetarian to vegan.

    • Snaps

      Actually, theres more protein (I assume you meant that by meat juice) per weight in broccoli than in steak. The only catch is that broccoli weighs a lot less than steak. The point is that you can get all but one nutrient (which alludes me at the moment but might be b-12) that you get from meat in vegetables.

      How does a gorilla get so big and strong since it never eats meat?

    If CM Punk wishes to go Vegan then good on him, more meat for me :) But realistically if it works and makes him happy then all the best, Personally I couldn't do much more than part time Vegetarian and that's if i'm desperate.

  • luke

    Daniel bryan has influenced people to become vegan. YES YES YES

    • Patrick_Peralta

      YES , YES, YES Good for CM Punk.

    Wow – first times in wwe history we have 2 Vegan champs

  • Kleck

    My opinion is that our bodies are made to be omnivores. We are made to eat a combination of meats, vegetables, fruits, grains and dairy. By forcing your body not to eat a basic food group is unhealthy and unnatural. Seems vegan might be the current trend. I’ll ponder this over a plate of pancakes and sausage patties.

    • Patrick_Peralta

      doesn't seem to harm Daniel Bryan he's not effected by just being a Vegan and not eating a combination of everything.

      • Kleck

        I’d be interested in seeing how this affects people in the long term. Say 10-15 years? Personally that was my opinion. I’m sure Dbry is happy with his lifestyle

  • Dark Knight

    to be honest, i dont like the interviewer..

  • Ian Myers

    The music on that DVD is going to be immense!

  • mjledesma

    Vegans tend to have a weaker immune system because the lack of meat proteins from dairy and meats. I once even read how D Bry himself has a weaker immune system. I applaud those who are vegan because its tough.

    • Dangerous Lee

      Vegans tend to be weak in general. Unless you make the effort to be strong like taking supplements and pills for building muscle.

    • Chris X

      this is the stupidest, most uniformed post in the universe.

  • Zach

    They would make an EPIC heel tag team

  • Jim P

    I'm amazed by how many people seem to think there is no variety in individual physiology. The truth is that some people are naturally-or perhaps, genetically-predisposed to such things as hypertension or high cholesterol. For these people, going vegan may be a wise choice. For others, it may not be the best choice. For crying out loud, fingerprints are unique, why wouldn't digestive and metabolic systems be?

  • WWE NERD

    How about Punk becomes heel,and then Bryan finds out that CM Punk is a vegan like him,and then they become a tag team,and Bryan still has his World tittle,and Punk as well,and I think that would be the very first ever World Tittles tag team EVER!!

  • Chris

    You know what I love about vegetarian food? It goes great with a steak…

  • Malboja

    I have a problem with all this vegan and vegetarian business .
    Are plants not living breathing things too
    Ever heard of photosynthesis
    Do they not grow
    Why only pick on plants
    I’m an equal opitunity eater
    Nothing better than
    Steak and chips
