CM Punk recently spoke with Extra Mustard of SI.com about his upcoming match with Brock Lesnar, a potential match with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, his thoughts on Total Divas, and more. Some highlights are below:
SI.com: You wrestled the Undertaker at WrestleMania. Were you happy with the match?
Punk: I think everybody is always selling me short and then I always prove them wrong. It keeps me pissed off and that’s where I need to be, I guess. I’m sick and tired of pulling main event matches and not being in the main event at WrestleMania. Eventually it’s just gonna get to the point of, “OK, I deserve to play with this toy, you’re not gonna let me play with it, then I’m gonna find some other toys to play with.” It gets me down when I really think about it and analyze it, but in the end it keeps me sharp and like I said, pissed off. But I don’t think I’m the guy you want pissed off forever.
SI.com: Do you voice these concerns to Vince McMahon?
Punk: Absolutely. All the time. We have conversations about it. Hell, if you’re in this business and don’t want to be in the main event at WrestleMania you shouldn’t be in this business. This past WrestleMania, I proved it to the one person that I needed to prove it to, that I should’ve been in the main event. I’ve shattered every negative stereotype people had about me. I proved to the one person that mattered that last year’s main event should’ve been mine and that person is me and I don’t give a sh-t about anyone else.
SI.com: Do you think Austin will ever wrestle again?
Punk: Yeah, my gut tells me that he will. Whether he makes the right decision or not to wrestle me is up to him.
