In the piece, Punk discussed retiring from WWE earlier this year at the young age of 35. These are his first public comments about retirement.

Below is an excerpt:

It [retirement] feels good. It's a lot easier when you hook up with organizations like the Cubs and being friends with some of the team members. It isn't hard to support their charities. Plus I get to do fun stuff like bowl and paint chairs and play whiffle ball with Bill Murray.

It was super fun and for a great cause. You've got athletes and actresses and musicians and all kinds of people painting chairs. I'm super happy to be a part of it.
