During a Q&A session Saturday at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia, WWE champion CM Punk discussed the WWE roster being thin right now. Here is what he had to say…
“I was home Thursday. And, before that, two weeks ago, I was home for 22 hours. It’s not healthy – I need to go home and hibernate, I know I really do. A lot of people go, ‘You look really tired today.’ Thanks. Downtime doesn’t exist. There’s two guys and the talent pool has never been thinner. How many guys are suspended right now? (laughs) Yeah, they’re wearing us out, but we can handle it – it’s me and Cena. We need more guys, but I like to be outside (on the road).”
Punk also said that a new WWE title belt is coming soon … “I email people that you people don’t know exist and I bother them constantly about this damn thing. There is a new title. I’ve seen it. I’ll probably get in trouble for saying it, but I don’t think it’s any better than the current one.
It’s better than this. They literally just made it. It’s about 20 pounds heavier than this one. I keep preaching that I want to be the guy – if I’m not the guy who doesn’t produce a new title, then I’ll be a liar, and I don’t want to be a liar. It’s out there, and it’s coming soon. Probably a lot sooner than the ice cream bars.”
