Recap of CM Punk’s ESPN interview

Jul 27, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck

CM Punk – one of the two current WWE champions – appeared on the B.S.
Report radio show on ESPN, hosted by Bill Simmons, a staffer of ESPN.COM and
a big wrestling fan. Punk said that the decision to stay with the company
came on the same day of Money In The Bank, just ten days ago. He said he
made his mind up to quit the company and get some time off and wasn’t trying
to sort of blackmail WWE into giving him more money. Regarding his promo on
Monday Night RAW several weeks ago, Punk said that he wanted to push the
envelope and everything he said was not scripted. He did know that they
would cut him off eventually and realizes that he went over the limit with
some of his remarks. Talking about his return on TV so soon following the
pay-per-view, Punk said that the angle is hot and wanted to capitalize on it
and with SummerSlam just around the corner it made sense to come back
quickly as he still loves wrestling. You can listen to the show at
