CM Punk talks discuss the ‘Attitude Era’ – WWE News
WWE Champion CM Punk spoke to WWE Games regarding his favourite wrestlers, stable and facing The Rock at Royal Rumble. According to Punk, his match against The Rock would be a great opportunity for him to prove his mettle.
“Hell of an opportunity for myself. I think it’s a big match, everyone’s gonna watch it, and I’m going to prove why I’m the best in the world. And it’s a high pressure situation, I love that, it’s great. I just hope he’s ready,” said Punk when asked about
his match against The Rock at The Royal Rumble next year.
When asked as to who was his favourite wrestler during his childhood, Punk said it was ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper, since he used to talk a lot of trash for his opponents.
“Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. He talked trash and got away with it… sort of like me,” said Punk.
Furthermore, Punk revealed that he wants to win at the main event at WrestleMania.
“Main event at WrestleMania. That’s an easy one to answer,” said Punk when asked about his next milestone to accomplish.
“I hate teaming up with people. Absolutely hate it. I like winning or losing, failing or succeeding on my own merit. You can say teaming up with Shawn Michaels just for the experience, but there’s nobody that I’d be clamoring to tag with,” answered Punk
when asked about a wrestler he would like to team up with if he gets the opportunity.
Punk is considered among the most controversial performers of the WWE of all time. He has fought the best in the business such as John Cena, The Undertaker and others to walk out victorious, not with his skills but with his tactics.
Punk first became champion when he cashed ‘Money in the Bank’ opportunity on John Cena. Today, he stands toe to toe as John Cena’s rival, even though for most fans he is not equivalent to Cena.
Punk will be facing The Rock at The Royal Rumble next year. It will probably be a championship match, which was actually meant for John Cena but Punk somehow grabbed the title to face The Rock.
