CM Punk is back talking about WWE again. In an interview with Colin Cowherd of Fox Sports, Punk told Colin that WWE treats their talent like “indentured servants.” Below is an excerpt:

"Back in I want to say, 2011, my contract was up and they were trying to re-sign me and they were trying to re-sign me for lowball figures," Punk said.

"It's what they do to the guys. They're indentured servants," he continued. "They try to pay them the smallest amount of money you could possibly pay them. There's no health insurance. You're responsible for your own travel, your own hotels, your own food on the road. You're home once a day, maybe. I did that 10 years to get to the WWE and then I did it 10 years there, so my gas tank was empty in that regard.”

In an interview with Peter Rosenberg, Punk stated he won’t wrestle for WWE again, however, he’d be open to wrestling again but not in a televised match. Punk said it’s going to be in a ninja outfit against one of his buddies and nobody’s ever going to know. That interview is available at this link.
