AskCVV #14 - Reacting To CM Punk's WWE Return, Randy Orton Is Back, I Randomly Call Maven To See If He Will Answer

Welcome back to another #AskCVV episode where Chris answers your burning questions from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We got some great questions about wrestling, movies, content creation and everything in between on this one. If you have one that you want answered on the next one, send it in using the hashtag #AskCVV! Quote I'm thinking about: “Life itself is a privilege, but to live life to the fullest-well, that is a choice.” – Andy Andrews Here are the questions we answer on this episode: Wow, can you believe CM Punk is back in WWE? I know you posed this question earlier this week, but what is YOUR answer. Which of CM Punk's returns do you think was bigger? What was the atmosphere like when you were at Survivor Series when CM Punk returned to WWE? And do you think that Punk will finally main event a WrestleMania next year in Philly at WM40? Can you list other opponents you would like to see CM Punk face in WWE aside from Cody, Reigns and Rollins? What did you think of Randy Orton's return at Survivor Series? If you called Maven right now would he answer? I just started listening to the show at the start of the year and now you're my favorite podcast. I listen to every episode! It really feels like your show has become massive over the last 6 months and you're everywhere. What would you attribute this to? What is the story behind the website wrasslin.com? You made a video talk about how it redirected to WWE.com, but now it redirects to your podcast! What happened? As fellow interviewers, we're curious to know: What does your interview prep look like? Do you read or watch other recent interviews with the guest? Do you take note of topics they're asked about often? Content Creator question. Especially with podcasting, I've been using the typical Blue Yeti, is that still a good go to for starting out or do you have a recommendation to help elevate the sound of the show better? If you had one takeaway from 2023, what would it be? (I love the podcast!) You are such a positive person, is there anything that bothers you or annoys you? As someone who is looking to start a podcast, what did you find was the most daunting thing to start? For the quotes at the end of the podcast, is there a rhyme or reason to which one you use?

How I Got Into The Best Shape Of My Life At 40 Years Old - My Workout & Meal Plan With Fitness Coach AJ Simms

I had a goal this year to get into the best shape of my life by my 40th birthday. And I'm proud to say that on May 19, I accomplished it! I did this for two reasons... One, I've been working out since I was 15 years old, but I wanted to see what would be possible if we really dialed in the diet and the workouts. And secondly, my daughter was going to be born around my 40th birthday so I wanted to redefine what it meant to have a dad bod. I've received A LOT of messages and emails asking what my diet looked like or what my workout plan looked like -- and we'll get into all of the nitty-gritty details during this episode, but I started at 202 and over the course of these 90 days I ended at 177 -- and I did it with the help of a world-renowned nutritionist and fitness coach AJ Simms (@cementfactory) who has trained wrestling stars like Bobby Lashley, LA Knight, EC3, Johnny Gargano, Apollo Crews and he's the guy who got Tommaso Ciampa looking like a beast recently. I did this all naturally -- although hey, I appreciate all of the comments from people accusing me of taking PEDs or doing TRT. That is honestly the best possible compliment for you to think this kind of result isn't possible without drugs. Hilarious! I hope you enjoy this episode with the one and only AJ Simms!
