CM Punk on What He Thinks of a WWE Return, Does He Keep in Touch with WWE Stars?

Former WWE champion and new UFC welterweight CM Punk recently spoke to Carrlyn Bathe of The Wrestling Compadres Slamcast. You can check out the highlights here:

On owning his name ‘CM Punk’:

“Oh yeah, I own my name. I think a lot of young guys now, in the [professional] wrestling industry can take a page out of my book and you can say ‘no’ to people. They might not like it, but I was, somehow, I was CM Punk when I was 15 years old, wrestling in backyards in Mokena, Illinois, so I don’t know how it lasted this long. I don’t know how it lasted this long. I don’t know why. But, yeah, that’s what we’re going with.”

On if he misses his WWE colleagues and what he thinks of a return:

“There [are] individuals that you see on a daily basis that, one day, I just stopped seeing. There’s a quote in the movie Stand By Me, ‘friends go in and out of your life like the busboy at your local diner’ and that’s kind of life. Screws fall in and fall out and I’ve kept in touch with some genuine folks from there and there are some that, if I run into at an airport, I’d probably hug and say, ‘hey, how are you doing?’ and catch up real quick. But, yeah, there [are] definitely people and situations, those are memories. Those are all good memories, but the thought of going back there is like the thought of going to summer school. It’s like, you have nightmares about it.”

    Punk feels the same way as he did before, but I agree he has moved on. Key word MOOOVVEED oooooooonnnnn lol

    Always need an extra arm so you pick on grammer in the end, this is not an official document, I dont need to waist time editing, no need to grasp on semantic straws your counter argument should be enough. But of course it wasn’t…. CM Punk said there are SOME GENUINE folks that he would give a hug, he didnt say they all friends now and he would give hugs and kind words to PEOPLE he would find there. The very THOUGHT of going there gives him nightmares. Now D2K I edit and correct documents all day at work make sure you edit this and correct any errors im on vacay lmao

    We know how he does in the squared circle. We’re now waiting to see how he does in the octagon.

  • D2K

    Punk spent the last couple of years talking about how much he hates WWE, and how awful they were to him, and usually a lot of expletives framed his statements. Here, he is not swearing, he’s reflecting on the good times he has had, and he acknowledges that he will have hugs and kind words for people that he sees that still work there.

    It means he has moved on, that he is TRULY at peace, and that he has grown up. Perhaps you should look into that.

    One more thing. For future reference, if you’re going to criticize others you might want to fire a synapse or two in your brain and brush up on your grammar and syntax first.

    CM Punk fans or “observers” are so pitiful at this point. You took “its something (I) have NIGHTMARES ABOUT” as “never say never.”? And D2K understood it as a more “subdued response than n the past.” Grasping at anything to see this man do something he cannot stand doing right now. Around the ring CMPunk fans continue to shout his name during matches, insultig talents that STUCK WITH THE BUSINESS. I will always be a Punk fan but give it a rest n lets see how he does in the Squared circle.

    Aww, CM Punk has nightmares about summer school…! LOL

  • D2K

    Yeah. It’s definitely more of a subdued response than in the past.

    I guess we can take that as a never say never.
