CM Punk On Why He's Not Excited For Cena vs. Rock II, Reaction To Being Called An Average Looking Pedestrian By Cena, If He Feels Guilty About Paul Bearer Angle

Shares 0

Sam Roberts interviewed CM Punk following Thursday's Wrestlemania 29 press conference.

Punk didn't mince words, saying he's not excited about John Cena vs. The Rock [at Wrestlemania 29] and he would be more excited if he was facing John. He said Dolph Ziggler should say he should be more excited if it were him and Rock. Punk feels certain media outlets will pick and choose certain things he says and then just kind of label him an "awful malcontent." He said he understandS the business "way more than they do" but he also understands personal goals. The former 434-day WWE Champion said where he is, is great but he always wants to be one step higher.

Regarding Cena calling him an "average-looking pedestrian" at the Wrestlemania 29 press conference, Punk said it didn't hurt his feelings and that was the whole point. He said that's why he didn't wear a suit. Punk said everyone just wants to please Vince and he just wants to be comfortable.

Mark Henry asked Punk why he's wearing an Antonio Cesaro shirt. Punk said because Antonio Cesaro is awesome and he likes to represent people that don't necessarily get the representation they deserve.

Punk doesn't feel guilty about Paul Bearer and is incapable of feeling guilt or any sort of remorse. He said he's a legitimate sociopath and that helps him do his job. Punk said "I didn't kill the guy" so he doesn't have anything to feel bad about. He said from talking with everyone that knew Bearer very, very well they say he would have loved the storyline.

Roberts told Punk about The Miz saying he felt like a fool for putting him over in the "Best in the World" DVD only for Punk to reveal he nearly quit the company because Miz main evented Wrestlemania 27. Roberts then asked if The Undertaker was the right match for him to be in this year. Punk said he puts too much pressure on himself and echoed comments from last week.

    He’ll never be the face of the company if he keeps bashing it and everyone associated. Funny he had said earlier only wore the shirt because it was the first thing he found though. Equally as funny saying he doesn’t have feelings and blah blah blah, wasn’t he the one feeling bad about the heartache angle with the King though??? I like Punk but he beginning to make me rethink that

      heart attack not heartache

      Can’t a wrestler stay in character outside of Televison tapings nowadays?

      • GODSENT68

        He was doing the same thing as a face

    • Nostaljack

      I love watching people in this section getting worked.

  • Xavier

    Punk reminds me of that kid in HS who tries to act like a badass who doesn’t have a care in the world by trying to be different, but on the inside just a really insecure kid desperately seeking attention & approval.

    • Batman

      Quite. A a Punk fan for many years, he’s getting more and more unbearable. The whole “I’m the best, everyone else is a dickhead” routine is getting old. Like Taz before him, he’s starting to buy into his own “best in the world” gimmick a bit TOO much. Go watch some Japanese and Mexican wrestlers and come back and tel me if you seriously still believe you’re the best in the world, Punk.

    Believe us, we aren’t excited either

    • Carlos is a dumbass

      And yet your still here

      • Kleck

        Ok, what’s your point exactly? The majority of us are not excited for Rock/Cena II and therefore all should not come to and read articles?

        Judging by your username you entered, it sounds like you’re simply a douche and I shouldn’t feed the trolls.

        • Carlos is a dumbass

          Correction: The IWC isn’t excited for this. The 90% of wrestling fans are excited for this. Secondly, people like you some on here and cry about being unhappy about this and that and yet you guys still watch and pour money into the product. Lastly. I bet you A.) Already ordered the Wrestlemania, B.) Are going to watch it at a friends house or C.) Download it from some illegal website. so I don’t get the point of you coming on here and whining about it, nobody here gives a rat’s ass if you are excited about it or not because your gonna end up watching it anyway.

            Because buying the biggest PPV of the year shouldn’t be based on one match but the show as a whole. As for my entitled opinion, deal with it little man.

            Nice ‘accurate’ statistics there Gallup.

          • Carlos is a dumbass

            I already dealt with it by telling you what a whiner you are. Man up troll baby.

  • Vanisha

    IWC turning on Punk pretty much is the best thing to happen for him. It means he really has made it. Still waiting for you all to turn on Bryan, Cesaro, Ziggler & Ambrose. It will happen…

  • Has Punk ever said hes enjoyed something? or liked.. something
