– CM Punk appeared on the 100th episode of The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani this week. Regarding Triple H’s recent comments about UFC needing to evolve, Punk called it absolutely insane and said every business needs to evolve. Punk said professional wrestling has a lot of work to do.
Punk said he has spoken with Triple many times about MMA and that Triple H “just doesn’t get it.” Punk added that Triple H doesn’t watch MMA and is missing the big picture – that UFC is indeed evolving. Punk also talked about how denying UFC competition is ridiculous.
Regarding MMA influence in pro wrestling, Punk said he would like to see less run-ins, more clean finishes and a focus on wins and losses.
Punk also spoke about WrestleMania 28 and said he would like to wrestle Steve Austin. Punk was asked who he is facing at the big show in Miami and said it would probably change a bunch of times between now and then.
