Mark Madden interviewed CM Punk on Wednesday. Since there was so much to the interview, we've broken it up into several different posts. In the below excerpt, Punk discusses his ability to get over, his real-life friendship with Paul Heyman and whether or not he's a pro wrestling lifer.
You don't need a win or a title to stay over with the fans. Is that a blessing or a curse?
I think it's a curse.
Madden said Punk is the "best talker out there" yet he's paired with Paul Heyman, who is also a great talker. Madden asked how that's not overkill. Punk said he's not sure if he's the best talker out there and an argument could be made that Paul Heyman is the best. Punk said the friendship that he and Heyman have off-screen really shines through in their work together.
When you were in my studio years ago I said and you agreed that you were not a wrestling lifer. Do you still feel that way or have you become a safer?
No I don't want to be a lifer. I just feel like I'm one of those guys that gets bored easy. So what's the next mountain?
