CM Punk Talks Facing Austin At WM28, HHH/UFC Ignorance, More

CM Punk appeared on Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” online show today, and discussed a number of MMA and pro wrestling topics.

Helwani asked Punk about Triple H’s recent comments claiming UFC needs to evolve more than WWE. Punk said he felt that it was an absolute insane statement. Punk said pro wrestling, in fact, has a lot of work to do. He mentioned talking about MMA with Triple H many times, and noted that HHH “just doesn’t get it.”

Punk was asked whether or not MMA has hurt the pro wrestling business. Punk claimed that it definitely didn’t help the wrestling business. Punk claimed that to deny UFC as competition to WWE is ridiculous.

Helwani asked Punk who he would be facing at WrestleMania 28. Punk said he doesn’t know because things change in WWE all the time. He said he would like to face “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
