CM Punk Talks About Working with Heyman, Attacking The Rock & Retirement

CM Punk was interviewed by this week to promote Sunday’s Summerslam 2012 pay-per-view. Here are some highlights.

Attacking The Rock at RAW 1,000: “I don’t think it was sudden at all. I’d been very vocal about the Rock coming back and cherry-picking the days he comes in. So, when he comes in I’m going to smack him in the face … I just think there are a lot of people who work their asses off here. I’m here 24/7, 365 days a year and he’s here like three days a year. So when he comes in here and tries to lay claim to our success and things people have worked hard to establish, it’s a little offensive.”

“I’m in line to face [The Rock] if I hold on till the Royal Rumble. The WWE’s like a minefield. Any guy can beat anyone on any given Sunday. So hopefully I’ll make it and I’ll prove to the Rock that you can’t just walk in and pick your days.”

Retirement & Remaining Goals in Wrestling: “I’m not going to wrestle forever … I would definitely say I’ve passed the middle point of my career for sure. Not many [goals remain]. I kind of want to make a few guys and girls. And I think I’ve done a little bit of that with AJ (Lee). I want to make sure there’s a future for the wrestling business when I leave. I want to make sure there are people that fill that void.”

Working With Paul Heyman: “I’m happy to see him when he’s here. It’s great. Before I could only hang out with him when I did shows in the Northeast. I got to grab a bite to eat with him. Now, he’s not here as often as I’d like, but when he shows up on Mondays it makes my day easier. He’s a dear friend I can bounce ideas off of.”

“I’d love to [work with Paul Heyman]. But he’s busy with Brock. And I don’t know if the Paul Heyman/CM Punk dynamic would work on screen. I don’t need a mouthpiece. And I think we’re two separate entities. But behind the scenes we get along famously.”

  • Austin

    That same story is actually what they’re “supposed” to do according to bullsheit sites like this one.

  • Jim

    Even though there’s money in Rock vs Cena II. I don’t want to see it again. If it happens at WM we will all know who wins.

  • xXx

    i dont like the idea but it would be cool if punk dropped the title to cena on sunday, cena-rock on the rumble, rock wins title, punk wins rumble, faces each other in mania for an epic main event. ..though i hope he’s more fit unlike last year where he’s clearly tiring..
