CM Punk: ‘I Don’t Want To Be A ‘Lifer’ In Wrestling’
CM Punk recently spoke about being a lifer in pro wrestling and more. Here are the highlights…
Has he 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 f*cking 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 (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 CM Punk 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?”

Thank u everyone for the kind wishes & some funny 1 liners Im sure were hard to pass up. If u cant laugh at yourself, who canu laugh at?

I ended up landing hard & horizontal. The turnbuckle ripped me another new a hole. I kew it right away, U can see me tell ref “tore my ass!”
Sorry for typo. I ewent to after party brieflly, but had to leave as blood starting gushing. Hotel looked like a murder scene. So much blood
Im typing in the dark. sorry for typos. Hotel security called ambulance & Dr Morken @ HCMC performed sphincterplasty to save me from having
to have a colostomy bag. It hard not to laugh. So feel free to find it humorous. I did almost bleed out, before ambulance got there.
I did the x factor from the top rope & 1 through a table after it happened. My concern was Jery getting the proper send off, Not my butthole
@MJCANDANCE It happened once befoer a few yrs back w Jay Bradley. Thats why I knew what happened this time.
@MJCANDANCE If i woud have lost anymore blood, I would have bleed completely out & needed a blood transfusion. Or died. Barely made it
@MJCANDANCE Colostomy is in the dictionary, but its when a person needs a bag put in there ide or stomach to go poop into.
@shaungt Why not. Its not my 1st near death experience anyway. Plus, how can you not chuckle about a story lke this?
Brighter side of things. will start taking applications for my school. Beginners need to be in shape.
@steveporterjr I’ll still be at my appearance for FUW in Tampa on Saturday. Im advertised, so not missing it. Cant wrestle however.
