"The biggest movie star in the entire world just happens to have come from WWE, so who wouldn’t want to see the biggest movie star go up against the biggest WWE superstar we have, the face of the organization, the franchise? That match just has the glitz and glamour, that’s the main event and we get that. The guys who resent it 100 percent just don’t understand the business because there’s money to be made, there’s eyes to be brought to a WrestleMania. Say it was me and Daniel Bryan headlining, we’re not going to get those people who pay to see a movie star.
Our job is, we get the people who pay to see Rock and John Cena, and you leave an impression that you stole the show. You do something to make them come back and see you the next day. That is my goal every time we do this, and of course, on Sunday, all those people tune in to see The Rock and Cena, but I’m going to leave them thinking I stole the show and now they have to tune in on Monday to see what I’m going to do next. That’s how I’ve been able to build my entire career. I’ve found a way to stand out and steal the show."
CM Punk Speaks on Creative Control in WWE, MMA Interest & More
Thanks to Chuck Carroll for sending in the following:
Thought I'd pass along an interview 106.7 The Fan's Chad Dukes did with CM Punk at WrestleMania. The two interesting talked about how much creative input Punk has with his character. In Punk's words, it's amazing "what a little squeaking" can get a person.
They also discussed his desire to go into MMA. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't (interested)," Punk said.
