CM Punk says working with Heyman was the best thing when he was champion


Fox Sports Wisconsin did an interview with former WWE champion CM Punk at the post UFC 185 media scrum which contained some interesting quotes regarding him and wrestling.

When asked how many programming has he seen since he left WWE in January 2014, he said, “None. I don’t watch wrestling anymore. I’ve tried to, but I have an aversion to it.” He did say though that he does watch what his wife AJ Lee is doing but he thinks she only tells him to watch when she’s excited about something.

He said that he had no regrets about his WWE run which started back in 2005 and although he would’ve liked to punch one or two people in the face, he wouldn’t change a thing about it. During the eight year run with the company, Punk spent 434 straight days as WWE champion and when quizzed about what he remembers the most about being a champion, Punk replied, “Working with Paul Heyman. That was the only thing that kept me sane. It was like a condition of, we get to work with each other because we don’t like anybody else. So, working with him!”

Punk once again was asked about the chances of him ever working with WWE again. “Zero,” Punk replied in a very short and sweet, but direct answer.
