  • Punk expects to be announced in UFC as Phil "CM Punk" Brooks
  • Regarding his final days in WWE, Punk offered this:

"Imagine if UFC took Conor McGregor and they just put him on Fight Pass prelims, and they wouldn't let him main event the big PPV or a big show," Punk said. "That's how I felt. I was the main event on all the house shows, I was the only guy that was touring live every single day. When it came time for the PPV main event, oh, someone else is coming in."

  • Punk noted that WWE’s fair treatment to his wife AJ Lee in light of his departure has been “commendable.”
  • Punk claimed in the piece WWE didn’t like him long before he left, stating:

"They didn't like me long before I left and there's no reason to pretend there needs to be any kind of working relationship," he said.
