CM PunkMike Buda of Top Rope Radio (every Tuesday 3-5pm CT) on SportstownChicago.com recently interviewed CM Punk at Wizard World in Chicago and he talked about the changes to the WWE over the past year, how he's changed since entering the company and the Rock getting a shot at the WWE title. Here are the highlights of the interview:

On the the Rock getting a chance at his title at Royal Rumble:

"I think it's fantastic since he's getting a title shot against me if I last that long. It's nice to be vocally against somebody who's just being handed things and then being the roadblock. Obviously, I was very vocal about Dwayne just marching in and getting to cherry-pick what days he shows up when he actually wants to be motivated to work and now he's going to be in the ring with me. There's no bringing 30 percent and there's no days off. It's me, it's 100 percent me and it's going to be a challenge for Dwayne."
