The Sun in the UK has an interview up with WWE star CM Punk. Here are some highlights.
On being drafted to Smackdown:
“I?m excited. I?ve done the ECW thing, won the titles there. Did the Raw thing and won all the titles there. Might as well go over to Smackdown and see what happens!”
On cashing in his “Money in the Bank” briefcase:
“If it was up to me, I?m a guy who gets bored very, very easily and doing the same thing over and over again isn?t very appealing, I would much rather do it a different way. I?m all for the ambush thing. I thought it was fun and it gets a reaction. But I?m always thinking character-wise too. No-one ever thought CM Punk would be world champion, and that it was a fluke the way I won it. This time, perhaps I’ll silence the critics and call someone ahead of time.”
If he would ever be interested in going heel in WWE:
“If it was up to me, then yes, absolutely. Do I think WWE is ready for a heel CM Punk? No, I don?t. I don?t see it happening any time soon. But man would that be fun.”
If it meant a lot when he was holding the WWE World Heavyweight Title that Samoa Joe was TNA World Champion:
“Me and Joe have talked about this, and I get that question a lot. Joe’s wife actually asked us, we were sitting around at Thanksgiving dinner, and she said: ?It’s crazy, did you ever both think you?d be world champions in different companies?? We both looked at either other and went ?Yep!? It may sound egotistical, but we knew we were that good. We were two of the craziest most driven people you?ve ever seen in your entire life. I see something and go after it.”
