WWE star CM Punk recently appeared on an episode of Ariel Helwani’s MMA Hour, where he talked about a number of topics including the differences in the locker room now from his first run with the company.

Punk said, “It is friendlier, you have to realize to talk about the way the culture is now, you have to talk about the way the culture was when I got there when I showed up, it was very much shark tank, cut-throat, super competitive and everybody looked at me like, f*** you, why are you here, you don’t belong here.”

“I was on television with nothing but top guys, I mean Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Kane, and there’s probably like 5 other guys I’m one hundred percent forgetting, it was brutal, and to try to scratch and claw and get recognized and noticed, and to get that little bit of TV time I was allotted, it was a lot different.”

“Now, I think it’s more laid back, I think that’s probably the best way to say it, it’s a relaxed atmosphere.”
