WWE Champion C.M. Punk appeared at Wizard World in Chicago on Saturday and took part in a Q&A session. The following are the highlights of the session…
-Someone asked Punk what he thought about facing Bryan in a submission match and Punk said he would love for that to happen.
-On the Kevin Nash controversy about smaller wrestlers winning the title: Punk said that it is Nash's opinion and you can't hate someone's opinion just because you don't agree with it.
-On JTG's twitter rant: CM Punk said if JTG had a problem with something, he should have talked to Vince McMahon or someone backstage instead of ranting about it on Twitter. Punk said that although his original Pipe Bomb promo was a public rant just like JTG, everything Punk said during the promo were the same things he had been saying to Vince for months.
-Someone asked Punk if he still feels the same way about the things he said in his original Pipe Bomb promo a year ago. Punk said it's different now because he is a lot less pissed off than he was back then.
-Punk was asked if he would rather face The Rock or John Cena at WrestleMania, and Punk said he wants to face The Rock so he could try to have a better match with Rock than Cena did and then be able to tell Cena that Punk's match was better. Punk made it sound like Rock and Cena are the top two possible opponents for WrestleMania next year.
-Punk said it's unlikely he will face Stone Cold anytime soon because Stone Cold just had knee surgery. Punk said the match will only happen if Stone Cold wants it to happen.
-Punk talked about how Eddie Guerrero offered to help CM Punk and Punk would talk to Eddie many times.
-Punk revealed that his new DVD will be shown to the public at a theater in Chicago two days before it is released. Punk said that one of the extras on the DVD is Kofi Kingston and him playing a Street Fighter video game and Punk said it's funny.
-Punk said he doesn't really know if Colt Cabana wants to be in the WWE because when they talk to each other, they don't talk about wrestling.
-Punk said that he was originally going to get the lead role in The Marine 3. He would have worked on WWE TV shows and been off house shows, but the shooting schedule conflicted with the WWE European tour. Punk said that the role went to someone in the WWE that fans wouldn't care so much if he was gone for a little bit. Punk was referring to The Miz.
-Punk was asked who he would work with if he could work with anyone. He said Samoa Joe. Punk was also asked which wrestler from an independent company he would like to see in the WWE. Punk said Samoa Joe again. The fan said that Samoa Joe works for TNA and Punk said something like: "I know. You said indy didn't you?"
-Someone asked when we would see Punk perform the Pepsi Plunge again. Punk said that it isn't used because he doesn't think he needs to use it. Punk said the move isn't banned and no one has told him he can't use that move.
-The Overexcited Brock Lesnar Fan was in line to ask a question and before his question, Punk invited him to the stage. Punk said something like, "Does anyone know who this is? It's the Brock Lesnar Guy!" Punk talked about that the guy is shown in every Lesnar video package because of when he copied Lesnar's entrance thing when Lesnar returned on Raw in April. Punk made the fan do the same thing he did on Raw. I think Punk said that the guys in the back enjoy seeing it whenever it is replayed.
-Punk talked about retiring from wrestling. He said that he will be 34 in a few months and that is too old to be able to perform at a high level in professional wrestling. Punk said he won't be another Triple H or Undertaker. Those two guys are currently older than 40 and still performing in the ring. Punk said when he does retire, he will leave the wrestling business for at least two years. I think he said if he does return to wrestling, he won't make a return to the ring. His retirement will not be like a Terry...
