As noted earlier, CM Punk was interviewed by WTMJ-4 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The full interview has been released, which you can check out in the video below. Below are some highlights:
Brock Lesnar offering to help him:
"I've talked to him and he's offered all his help, even if it's just bug him with a stupid question. It's cool to know he supports me. He's a good guy to know, I think."
Now-Teammate Ben Askren criticizing UFC when they first signed Punk:
"I absolutely agreed with him. It didn't make any sense. But me and Ben talked about it and we're absolutely on the same page. I was offered something I would be a fool to say no to."
MMA being similar to pro wrestling:
"I think MMA is pro wrestling. If you go back to the early 1900's and the whole genesis of professional wrestling, and then you go back to the early beginnings of MMA, it was all pro wrestlers."
