The Republic has a new Q&A online with WWE Champion CM Punk. Below are the highlights:
Question: What is it like being a WWE star?
Answer: You know, I really can't compare it to anything else. It's probably the busiest job in the world.
Q: Do you get much down time?
A: I was home for six days a week before Christmas. That was like the first time in 10 years that happened. I kind of went crazy after three days. It's a bit of a culture shock.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about sports entertainers?
A: That we're not athletes. That goes hand in hand with it. That's what we do. I don't know anybody who works harder than we do. We don't have time off. We don't have a season off. These are some of the toughest people I've known in my entire life.
Q: You are really active on social media. Do you enjoy it?
A: Twitter is hilarious. It's like the whole world having your phone number. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad. You get to chat with people that you normally don't get to chat with, maybe touch some of the fans who interact with you.
