Source: The NerdistAs we recently reported, The Nerdist conducted a 90+ minute interview with WWE Champion CM Punk. During the interview, Punk discussed being injured while in WWE and some of the setbacks associated with it.
"Since I've been with the WWE, every time I've gotten hurt there's actually been moments in my career where I'm like, 'alright sweet, I just tore my gluteus medius tendon in my hip and I have to go get surgery, at least I'm getting a break,'" Punk said. "And I go to get surgery and the doctor gives me my pre-op MRI and says that it's not torn off the bone and he's not going to cut me and I'll do rehab. And I'll ask, 'what's rehab on that,' and he'll say 'oh, 2-3 months.' So in my mind, I'm like, 'cha-ching! I just scored three months of not being around all these people that I hate right now. Awesome!'
"And then Vince McMahon calls you and goes, 'Heard you're not getting surgery, that's good news! I need you at TV on Monday to do commentary.' And I'm like, 'alright.' You know what I mean? You're on your iPad and you're like x-ing out the Hawaii Marriott website and you're like, 'alright, I'll see you Monday, thanks man.'"
Punk also discussed why he got into wrestling, his apartment, being a nerd growing up, his tattoos, his father being an alcoholic and much more. You can download and listen to the full 90+ minute interview by clicking here. Punk's comments about being injured begin at the 1:18:00 mark.
