CM Punk on WWE’s part-time main eventers: “They don’t work as hard and make just as much money”

CM Punk has appeared on former WCW commentator Mark Madden’s radio show and made some interesting comments.

On if he has inspired change since demanding it in 2011:

“You have me going out there and saying I want the WWE to change … I did that as a good guy. To this day, there are still people so pissed off that I didn’t get them ice cream bars … I don’t know what they thought was going to happen, but we really got them on that. It’s a TV show, first and foremost.”


The difficulty trying to make his feuds and matches unpredictable:

“It’s damn near impossible to achieve, but it’s always the goal. Wrestling is no fun when you always know who’s going to win – it’s like watching a blow-out football game.”


Does it suck to be out there every week?:

“If I didn’t want to be there every week, I wouldn’t be there every week. Miz will go out there and say ‘it’s great having these guys [part-timers] back’ because I honestly believe he thinks he has to say that … They don’t work as hard, and they make just as much money. But it makes me work harder though – and god dammit that’s gonna burn me out.”


Will he be a “lifer” in pro wrestling?:

“I don’t want to be a ‘lifer’ – I don’t want to do anything. But I get bored easy, so what’s the next hill to climb, and what’s the next mountain to climb?”
