Who from the Attitude Era helped develop his character: "Nobody, I've been CM Punk since I was 15 years old... I was nicknamed Punk when I was a little kid, 'cause I was a little punk into the Ramones, listening to the Clash, listening to punk rock music. I was the first guy to punch someone in the face and not ask questions. So that's who CM Punk is and that's where it came from... But a guy who I really liked and admired from the Attitude Era was 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin."
If he will wrestle Austin: "It's not up to me. I'll fight Muhammad Ali, I'll fight Rin Tin Tin, I'll fight anybody. Steve Austin knows that. He's got a bum wheel, he said? We'll see about next year, see what's hurt or injured or what else the excuse will be come next year. I'm not a hard guy to find, I'm the WWE Champion."
Facing The Rock at the Royal Rumble: "I've got a date with the Rock come Royal Rumble 'cause apparently somebody on the Board of Directors in their infinite wisdom just likes to grant title matches... Make no mistake about it, WWE's no joke, any Sunday I could lose this title, I could lose this title tomorrow. I don't plan on it, but I'm saying that the possibility lies within. I have to hold on to this... I have to hold on to this until The Royal Rumble so I can shut Rock up myself, because that's what I've wanted to do for years and I'm gonna get my chance... Rock, you know what's comin' for you. There's a reason why he's been silent, and it's not because he's busy shooting a movie, he knows this time he's finally bitten off more than he can chew."
Punk also discussed being on the cover of WWE '13, wanting to face Cactus Jack and more, you can watch the full interview below:
