CM PunkLast week, WrestleZone exclusively reported that CM Punk’s WWE contract has actually already expired, and that he signed an extension through the PPV in order to work the main event of tonight’s PPV in Chicago against John Cena.

In an update to that story, Punk has been making the media rounds this week hyping tonight’s show, and has been very candid about his experience with WWE and his current status with the company. In an interview conducted for the Abe Kanan Sirius/XM Radio Show, Punk noted that he has NOT re-signed with WWE at this point, and that the extent of his re-negotiation with the company is roughly as follows:

-WWE wants Punk to re-sign for 5 years, to which Punk said no.

-Up until a few years ago, Punk did NOT get along well with Randy Orton to the point where it almost became physical between the two.

-Punk feels The Rock does not deserve to main event WrestleMania.

-WWE offered Punk a role in a non-WWE produced horror film and Punk turned it down.
