Punk said in the interview that fans can expect to see a different CM Punk than what they’ve seen before. Punk made reference to his age and how he plans on being no less entertaining.
“And I think that’s what you’re going to see. It’s a different CM Punk. You’re for sure going to see a guy who realizes that this probably has a time limit on it. I’m 42 years old, so let’s go. Let’s try to have fun and let’s enjoy the moment and let’s enjoy this silly thing we all love called professional wrestling. Seven years is a long time and I’m a different person. That doesn’t mean I’m going to be any less entertaining.”
