CM Punk – Happy that he is out of the WWE bubble

In a recent interview with Ted Gruber of Red Eye Chicago, CM Punk spoke on a number of topics including his take on the Hulk Hogan racism controversy. He also spoke about WWE a bit while addressing the growing popularity of MMA.

The full interview can be found here. Below are some highlights:

The Hulk Hogan controversy:

"I don't really have a comment on it. Like I said, though, stuff that you say can come back and bite you in the ass. Everybody gets what they deserve in the world. Hopefully he issued a sincere apology and we can all move on from it.

"We all have said stupid things and I don't think you should judge somebody on what they said a long time ago. But some of the stuff is harsher than other things. It is what it is."

Daniel Bryan texting him on his UFC career:

"I thought it was pretty cool. Everybody in WWE whether they admit it or not are big fans of the UFC. Like everything else they are 10 years behind the curve on everything, but they are slowly warming up to MMA. Now it's all Ronda Rousey. But a couple of years ago when I mentioned her they told me the sport was despicable. Everything they are doing now is something I told them five years ago. They live in a bubble. When you are on the road this much, you are 'all in' and nothing else matters; I lived in a bubble.

"They built this empire and they are the best at what they do. But they still have no [bleeping] idea what goes on outside their bubble."

Punk also discussed his MMA training, if he gets annoyed with questions about returning to wrestling, penning Drax No. 1 and more. You can check out the full interviewby clicking here.
