This past Monday, WWE Champion CM Punk has been conducted an interview with Mark Madden on 105.9 The X, Pittsburgh. In the interview, he touches on a variety of topics.
He states that he has been able to give inputs lately, but also adds that everyone can add input.
Regarding if WWE has gone through change, he says this:
“I think things aren’t going to change over night. A few little things have already changed. Just the face they’re listening to different people is a step in the right direction. It’s going to take a while. Obviously I’m one who’s an advocate for any kind of change. Getting guys like Zack Ryder on TV is a step in the right direction. He’s entertaining, that’s the bottom line. Is he going to main event WrestleMania this year? No. Maybe he will in a couple of years, you never know. I’m just happy what little change has been implemented thus far has been implemented.”
Punk acknowledges that people have been making comparisons with him to Stone Cold Steve Austin, and explains that he doesn’t want to create another Attitude Era. He emphasizes that he wants to make wrestling fun again. He hopes that everyone tunes in next week, just to see what will happen next, because that’s his goal.
He then talks about his opponent John Cena, the interim WWE Champion, and acknowledges that he has said some scathing things about him, but puts him over as a person that really loves working for the WWE. Regarding Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, he explains that what he said about him is true.
“I’m in a position now where I think I can call guys out on it, I have no personal problems against Dwayne. It’s very frustrating being here and watch a guy come in and get credit for a WrestleMania buyrate when he didn’t do anything on the show. He certainly didn’t do anything entertaining. There’s a line he crossed at some point where I think he is just as out of touch as the Vince McMahons and everybody else. I’m not calling Rock old, he’s still obviously a young physical fit guy but his ideas are old and his shtick is corny in my opinion. Hopefully when my ideas are old and my shtick is corny, there’s some young punk that’s going to call me out on it. Hopefully Dwayne takes it as, “ok when I come here I have to step it up”, and hopefully he does.”
