CM Punk says he has one milestone left before he retires‏



Arda Ocal (@arda_ocal) of the Score Television Network and the Baltimore Sun recently spoke with current WWE Champion CM Punk about the upcoming WWE ’13 video game, his ‘Hell in a Cell’ opponent, what he’d still like to accomplish in WWE and more.

Highlights:

On his ‘Hell in a Cell’ opponent Ryback and whether he’s surprised to face him.
“Im glad actually. I think you take a look at Ryback and he’s your typical WWE wrestler. He’s what Vince McMahon likes. But conversely, my choice was John Cena or Ryback; Cena’s had shot after shot after shot. To me, the ‘change’ I talked about a year and a half ago was about new people stepping up and getting shots, so I’m excited. Its something new, its something different and I can sink my teeth into it.”
 
On whether the rivalry between himself and John Cena will be the one that sticks out the most in his career.

On a possible match with the Rock at the Royal Rumble and whether it could be the biggest match of his career.
 
On early retirement and what he feels he has left to accomplish in WWE

How he re-invents himself as a Superstar and WWE Champion

    If CM Punk does retire next year, he shouldn’t be away from the pro wrestling business forever, he could just retire from the in ring work and continue on as an play-by-play announcer for RAW. CM punk on commentary is just pure awesomeness!

    AsterikCade…I totally agree!

    So punk is gonna retire and say the rock bailed? Gimme a break

  4. Brandon says:

    Punk says the Rock bailed because the Rock left when he was on top of the WWE and went into the movie business and put wrestling in his rear view mirror completely. Punk isnt going to do that.

  5. Chris James says:

    Just because the rock didn’t wanna stick around like an old dog doesnt mean he “bailed”. The Rock is the object of a lot of people’s jealousy and envy, and it’s plainly obvious that cm is just another one of those people. The Rock can still perform better than most, if not that whole locker room today. Go ahead and flame me, cm punk marks.
