– CM Punk and Maria, who used to be involved in a relationship, apparently launched some subtle digs towards each other during recent radio interviews.
Maria was recently asked about her past relationship with Punk. She said the two broke up because of the wrestling business and that she is now dating someone outside of it. On the kind of man Maria’s looking for, she said, “Looking for someone who’s going to treat me like a lady and not like one of the boys.”
In a separate recent interview when discussing Playboy Playmates, Punk said, “Playboy playmates are so overrated. I also like women with brains.”
