CM Punk was interviewed by the Toronto Sun speaking about tonight’s RAW. Here are some highlights from the interview:
If he would have been successful in the Attitude Era: “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 don’t know if it’s jealousy. I don’t have six-pack abs and I can’t benchpress 400 pounds. I can’t believe I have to step over people to get their attention. They have an antiquated way of seeing things… I’m trying to save this business.”
On Beth Phoenix and Natalya: “Beth (Phoenix) and Nattie (Neidhart) are two of the hottest things going right now. The Divas of Doom are awesome. They’ve got a female fanbase that we’ve categorically denied and I don’t know why.”
On Beeing Booed: “If they’re yelling that I suck, that doesn’t phase me. They can yell at me, swear at me. That’s all good. It’s shades of grey now. But I do think the best stuff, the best wrestling, is the good guy vs. the bad guy. That’s what the business was built on.
“If you’re really good at being a bad guy, people appreciate it. It creates a dichotomy where they may yell for me, not at me.”
On Future Goals: “I’m 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 I’ve never won the U.S. title, so look out Dolph Ziggler.”
