Recent CM Punk Interview Ends After Heated Exchange About WWE

A recent interview with CM Punk came to a halt when Punk didn’t like a question about his previous place of employment: World Wrestling Entertainment. CM Punk recently spoke with Kevin Wong of Complex Magazine to promote the UFC and his upcoming debut. Eventually Wong asked a question about WWE, and Punk did not appreciate it. “I don’t feel like fielding questions about it [WWE],” he said. “I’ve been there, I’ve done that, and I’ve accomplished everything I was going to.”

Punk was then asked if he’s anxious or intimidated to go from pro wrestling to MMA, which lead to this exchange:

Punk: “I get this question a lot, and it’s like you guys think I’m an idiot. Like I didn’t know MMA wasn’t pre-determined or something like that. Have you ever tweeted at me, ‘Hey, do you know what you’re getting into?’”

Wong: “I never have.”

Punk: “Okay. It sounds like you might have.”

Wong: “I don’t mean to put you on the defensive…”

Punk: “I’m not on the defensive. Your question is insulting. You’re asking me if I know the difference between the WWE and the UFC?”

Wong: “That’s not what I’m asking.”

Punk: “That’s exactly what you’re asking… You say my fans say that? You’re mistaken. My fans do not say that. I wouldn’t say anything to them [my critics]. I don’t justify stupidity with an answer. I don’t give a s–t what anybody thinks of me, whether I’m going to fight or not. I know what I’m going to do. If I did anything in my life based on someone’s negative opinion on me, I would never f–king leave my house. My fans are people who don’t tweet negative s–t at me.”

Wong noted that after the interview he was informed “Punk has no interest in talking to [Wong] ever again.” You can read the entire interview here. Punk is expected to debut at UFC 199 or UFC 200, possibly against MIckey Gall.
