CM Punk Talks WWE Future, Takes Shots at Creative and Seth Rollins

(CM Punk, WWE staple turned MMA fighter)

Some highlights from CM Punk’s official debut on WWE Backstage on FS1:

– Regarding why he is back, Punk noted that things just snowballed between him and FOX and he accepted the role, which didn’t exist 6 months or even 6 years ago.

– Punk confirmed he is not under contract to WWE and has not made any contact with anybody in the company. He notes his deal is between himself and FOX, which is interesting because the can’t punish or suspend him for his opinions. He noted he will tell the truth and there is nothing they can do about it. 

– He revealed Jim Ross was the only major to reach out to him. 
– He said, “I’m at a point in my career where I don’t have to work with jerks.”

– Punk said there are major hurdles with regards to returning in-ring for WWE. He said he is 41, but “never say never”, but right now it doesn’t look like he’ll be returning. He added, “It’s not something I’m actively pursuing.”

– Punk noted that WWE still feels overproduced, “The wrestling product can be so much better. It’s too overproduced and too micromanaged.” He added the women’s division is something he enjoys and NXT.

– On the women’s division, he said he’s not a fan of Forcing the women’s revolution. “Let the women be the women and they’ll show you they kick ass and why they belong.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
