Cena Talks About CM Punk Leaving WWE, Rock & WrestleMania 28



WWE Champion John Cena was interviewed by the Chicago Tribune this week to hype Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, which takes place from the Windy City.

With CM Punk vowing to leave WWE with the WWE championship this Sunday, Cena knows Punk’s the atmosphere in Punk’s home town of Chicago will be electric:

“Chicago fans greeted me with a ‘(Expletive) you, Cena’ chant. Chicago fans cheer and boo who they want. They’re great fans whether they like me or not. They show you how they feel. I don’t like crowds that sit on their hands.”

One of CM Punk’s gripes in recent weeks has been that The Rock, who is no longer an active WWE superstar, made a brief return to the company earlier this year and is already booked for the main event of next year’s WrestleMania. Cena had this to say about Punk’s gripe:

“Here’s a guy [Punk] who literally is a pure-bred wrestler, who loves the business and loves being able to go out and compete. I can understand his frustration. But you can’t ignore the attraction of The Rock being involved.”

With all the negative things John Cena has said about The Rock turning his back on the WWE universe by retiring as an active competitor, Cena was asked why he hasn’t been as hard on CM Punk’s decision to leave. Cena responded:

“I know he’s not going to leave wrestling. He’s leaving WWE. There’s a difference. CM Punk doesn’t feel he’s been treated properly in WWE. We’ve had this problem before. MVP was another one who felt he wasn’t treated well and has gone on to have a prolific career in Japan. Same with A-Train. I have more respect for a guy who leaves the company to better himself in another territory. But all roads lead back to Rome. If you’re successful, you’ll find your way back.”
