CM Punk Discusses His Mic Work, What's Next for Him and More
CM Punk spoke with The Toronto Sun to promote tonight's WWE RAW Supershow. Here are some highlights:
People's view of him:
"There are some people who think CM Punk would have been a mid-carder in the Attitude Era. They have this predetermined assessment of me. I donít know if itís jealousy. I donít have six-pack abs and I canít benchpress 400 pounds. I canít believe I have to step over people to get their attention. They have an antiquated way of seeing things. Iím trying to save this business."
His mic work:
"When I talk, my design is to piss somebody off. Iím not just saying, Ďyouíre bald,í or Ďyouíre ugly.í Doing this is ingrained in my DNA. Itís 100% mine, all me. Half of the stuff I know off the top of my head, the other half I come up with when Iím out there. The best stuff is always the kneejerk reaction. It helps when you get somebody great to work with. I donít know if itís something you can teach. (As a kid) I didnít walk around with a pretend plastic microphone, but I was never afraid of talking back. I used to get the crap beat out of me. But people would tire out from punching me in the face before I would stop talking back."
What's left for him?
"Iím running out of goals. No. 1 with a bullet would be main eventing Wrestlemania. Winning a Royal Rumble would be a feather in my cap. And Iíve never won the U.S. title, so look out Dolph Ziggler."
