Source: Rosenberg RadioCM Punk recently sat down with Rosenberg Radio. Here are some highlights from the interview.
Is it somewhat intimidating to work with Brock Lesnar: "I'd probably be remiss if I said no, but I don't think Brock's dangerous or anything like that. He just brings a different persona and a different aspect to the game. I like that. I think I'm one of those guys that sometimes needs a little prodding and poking to get the best out of me. You do this so often and you're on the road so many days and you have so many matches. I think this one's going to end up being not just another match."
What does he think of the Randy Orton fan attack incident: "My first reaction is it bums me out, that anybody would want to do that. A lot of people might think I'm comparing two things that aren't really alike but honestly, the first thing that popped into mind is when Dimebag Darrell got shot on stage. What if that dude had a knife? What if that dude had a gun? We don't know and it sucks that anybody would want to do that. Security to me, isn't at fault because if somebody wants to do something that stupid, chances are if they're that methodical about it they're going to get it done. It sucks. It sucks that as performers that is still one of the things we have to worry about instead of just trying to entertain everybody."
How would he have handled the fan attack: "I don't know how I would have handled it. It's one of those things that you don't really know until you're put in that position."
What does he think of Riley Cooper's recent racial slur: "I would say that most of the teammates, and rightfully so, have probably lost a lot of respect for him. I for one, don't really respect anybody that listens to Kenny Chesney, first of all [laughter] Just kidding. Sorry, I had to try and lighten the mood because it is a serious topic. I don't even know if calling what he did bone headed even does it justice. I'll be honest I haven't seen the clip, I just know he dropped some N bombs. I do firmly believe that there's no such thing as bad words, there's just bad intentions, but that's just one of those words, actually, I'll be honest, if you're a white guy, you don't use.
"God, I could talk about this and it'd probably wind up getting me in trouble, because when I say you don't say that in public, it doesn't mean you run around your house and drop N bombs either. It's a super sensitive issue and to me, it's like abortion. I don't think believe that a bunch of 50 year old white haired men need to be making decisions on what a woman can and cannot do with her body. I'm a white guy. N bombs and a lot of racial stuff, I can't really relate to. To me it's just one of those topics I can't weigh in on it because somebody can tell me I don't know and they're right, I don't know."
