Former WWE Superstar CM Punk was recently interviewed for Complex Magazine. He insulted the interviewer, refused to answer WWE questions, and left the interview.

When he’s asked if he is anxious or intimidated to make the transition from professional wrestling to UFC he answers...

“I get this question a lot, and it’s like you guys think I’m an idiot. Like I didn’t know MMA wasn’t pre-determined or something like that,” says Punk. "Have you ever tweeted at me, ‘Hey, do you know what you’re getting into?’”

The interviewer, Kevin Wong Answers, “I never have.”

CM “Okay. It sounds like you might have.”

KW “I don’t mean to put you on the defensive…”

CM “I’m not on the defensive. Your question is insulting. You’re asking me if I know the difference between the WWE and the UFC?”

KW “That’s not what I’m asking.”

CM “That’s exactly what you’re asking.”

If he wants to be a star he's going to have to get it through his head that he needs to do interviews. He also needs to learn that playing the heel in MMA requires a little bit more of a delicate touch than being the heel in pro rasslin'.

His a very touchy man, Following him on twitter really shows that, Afraid to ever tweet him because he will block you fast!

I would love him to return to WWE one day, But now I can never ask that either, Because then I insult his intelligence?? Oh Phil...

Yeah he usually sounds easily agitated in interviews or overly sensitive. What do you expect man you got zero MMA experience of course you're gonna get some shit.

Wonder if the pressure is getting to him now, that gall kid is a Gracie brown belt he would sub punk in a round.

Didn't know the kid was a brown belt..wow. I can't believe Dana would risk the loss of another one of his precious children.

Lets no forget this gem with Michael Landsbury.

In Brook's defense, Landsbury is the worst reporter covering sports today.

But yeah, he should just troll all these reporters and have fun with it, rather than getting all upset and bitchy.

Part of me thinks it's just a "shoot" maybe to drum more attention for the fight but part of me things there must've been some REAL bad blood with him and WWE.

I think Brooks is just a standoffish, anti social dude, possibly a huge prick. There have been a ton of fan accounts of him being a stuck up ass at every turn with fans or other people in public and I've read similar stuff about the way he did business in the professional wrestling biz. This interview just might be the norm for him and dealing with people. ?
