- WWE Champion CM Punk spoke with Mark Madden on his Pittsburgh radio show this past Monday to promote SummerSlam. Punk was asked if he now has creative control in WWE. Punk said he doesn't like that term and said control is bad. He noted that he has input now but added that everyone always has input. Madden asked Punk if things have really change in WWE or if it's just another McMahon being the star of the show.

"I think things aren't going to change over night," Punk said. "A few little things have already changed. Just the face they're listening to different people is a step in the right direction. It's going to take a while. Obviously I'm one who's an advocate for any kind of change. Getting guys like Zack Ryder on TV is a step in the right direction. He's entertaining, that's the bottom line. Is he going to main event WrestleMania this year? No. Maybe he will in a couple of years, you never know. I'm just happy what little change has been implemented thus far has been implemented."

Punk says people have been making comparisons to what's happening now and the Attitude Era but added that he isn't trying to fill Steve Austin's shoes. Punk is trying to do something completely different - make it fun again, he said. Punk said he hopes he is making everyone tune in next week to see what's going on because that's his goal.

Regarding John Cena, Punk acknowledged that he has said some nasty things about his SummerSlam opponent but put him over as someone who loves what he does and a hard worker for WWE. Punk said everything he has said about "Dwayne" is absolutely 100% true.

"I'm in a position now where I think I can call guys out on it," Punk said about The Rock. "I have no personal problems against Dwayne. It's very frustrating being here and watch a guy come in and get credit for a WrestleMania buyrate when he didn't do anything on the show. He certainly didn't do anything entertaining. There's a line he crossed at some point where I think he is just as out of touch as the Vince McMahons and everybody else. I'm not calling Rock old, he's still obviously a young physical fit guy but his ideas are old and his shtick is corny in my opinion. Hopefully when my ideas are old and my shtick is corny, there's some young punk that's going to call me out on it. Hopefully Dwayne takes it as, "ok when I come here I have to step it up", and hopefully he does."

I like Cm Punk but I hate the fact that he praises Cena cuz he's a hard worker and dedicated I'm getting tired of hearing that shit from everyone who says that. Cm Punk needs to know if The Rock was there he wouldn't be where he's at right now that's for sure and have more reasons to complain. Cm Punk is the best thing going on right now but if he faces or talks about a legend like The Rock or Stone Cold or Chris Jericho then I'm rooting for the Legend even though I like Cm Punk but to me Old School is the best and New School ain't shit IMO.

Just to show you how popular The Rock is cuz they made fun of him in Family Guy which was funny but you will never hear Cena or Cm Punk names coming out in cartoons or big celebrities but only on late night talk shows

How is Punk Jealous of Cena or Rock.
All he does is hate how Rock can barge instantly into the main event and get credit of WM27 when Undertaker, Punk and Orton all deserves more credit.

It's kind of funny how people say that The Rock can barge instantly into the main event which makes me laugh because for 7 years since The Rock has been gone cuz of acting which I would give up wrestling for acting as well but for 7 years people have been begging and wanting The Rock to come back now that he does to face the man who people hate and kids love all of a sudden don't like him. Cm Punk can say all he wants about The Rock but Cm Punk still has a long way to go to be in The Rock's league don't get me wrong ever since Cm Punk did his work shoot or shoot whatever you want to call it made me like him even more but that was last month and until now he has been giving great entertainment but The Rock on the other hand Face or Heel he entertained the crowd with great wrestling matches, great promos and great entertainment every single Raw, Smackdown or PPV. Cena still needs to do another 9 more years to put on great matches, great promos (stop kissing ass) and great entertainment sorry but Hard working and dedicated don't cut it with me same goes for Cm Punk. Every Monday Night, Every PPV we want to see WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT Not Wrestling 5 times outta the year or Entertainment just for a certain lil audience

Sorry Punk that number was so higher cause of The Rocks involvment.... it was one of the worse Wrestlemainas and both main events had no real appeal to them. No dream matches.

Like him or not he is box office, ratings were up, Buyrates were higher and not the mention Raw was more intense and must see.
Respect and credit got to be given to The Rock, Despite what people think of him, he did give the product a freshness it hasnt had before and ratings and buyrates were up.... and this WM will probably be the biggest finacial success of all.

Hey hey hey... Triple H VS Undertaker was a very favourable match-up. Very favourable.

Anyway, I'm like CM Punk. I like facts. So what've we got?

Fact: Dwayne came back, now makes appearances when most convenient for all parties involved.

Fact: Cena will not leave business as long as he can, and does everything he sees is needed for the company's benefit.

Fact: Punk speaks his mind, his true mind, and knows the very unfortunate truth; the executives of the company are all old and out of touch.

It's not that hard to figure out. It all comes down to the control the heads of the WWE have. Entertainment is easier to maintain than sports entertainment.

Well CM Punk was talking about buyrates and The Rock having a impact in his return and he did......... I agree with Punk and everyone else, Rock treated Wrestling like it was some porn he did in college to pay bills and now he acts like he will never leave Wrestling and its his life..... Rock disrespected the Bussiness, not by not showing up, but just the attitude he had when people brought up his wrestling past.

but the thing is if Rocks Wrestling ideas are outdated Does it Matter? (no pun intended), Rock has his storyline with Cena which seems to be going good, he doesnt influence other peoples storylines... so why the hell does Punk care if Rocks ideas are outdated? it dont effect the WWE.

Plus Punk made it like the Rock had no impact on the WM buyrate or on Raw Ratings, when he did, he made a big diffrence, his involment on the Raws leading up to WM and WM it self was one of the main reasons it was the success it was.

http://i249.photobucket.com/albums/gg219/waynev1/Graphics/CMPunkAvatar.png

I think CM Punk had the right to voice his opinion. The guy was rightfully pissed about some guy who had gone away from the WWE for years an then suddenly got into the picture, and then took credit for something that other people were also apart of. CM Punk also said that one day he would likely get lame too (Self own FTW!) an that one day a punk would call him out. I think he was just trying to encourage The Rock to step up for the fans an then give them an appearance that is WORTH their money.

Punk is jealous of Rock just like Cena. Punk is good, but he is not in Rock's league, he has a long way to go.

Why do people play the "Hes jealous of The Rock" card? Punk is not jealous of The Rock, hes stating his opinion.

Seriously, The Rock may have had a part in the Wrestlemaina buyrates but he wasn't the sole reason. You had matches like Triple H vs Undertaker, CM Punk vs Randy Orton, John Cena vs The Miz, Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes, and Edge vs Alberto Del Rio that people were ecited to see.. This isn't 1999-2002 people. The Rock maybe a legend but to say he had a huge part in the Wrestlemaina buyrates is crazy.

This isnt my opinion, But before wrestlemania if i remember correctly nearly everybody was saying how shit the card was (I actually thought it was pretty decent). Nobody was excited about the undertaker vs hhh match due to the lackluster build, And to be quite honest the only match that did seem to be anticipated was cody rhodes vs mysterio. But i might have been looking in the wrong places though, but the only good i heard about this past wrestlemania was about the rock / cena stuff. To say cm punk is jealous is a stretch , but to say he isnt giving the rock enough credit is in my opinion just honesty. The rock had a big impact on wrestlemania this year as did stonecold. But if i was cm punk i wouldnt be arguing that fact i would be focusing on selling out this years wrestlemania , which IMO could be cm punks first chance to mainevent and really prove he can sell tickets.

Your right, my Black Ninja brother. Neither Punk nor Cena are jealous of the Rock. I think the WWE are just keeping Rocky in the limelight to help those buyrates.

Where were you leading into wrestlemania? everyone was bagging the undertaker vs hhh match. Some people were on the fence, some were originally excited but then when the build got repetitive because the undertaker wasnt in ring shape and couldnt contribute phsically to the build it sorta died down (untill the hbk promo) and some people were all dissapointed because it wasnt sting returning. I personally was relatively excited. But my point was not much was spoken of before wrestlemania besides the Rock stuff.

First, you are right about this not being 1999-2002 (even though Rock was around until 2004). Now while you & CM Punk think The Rock had very little impact on ratings, buyrates & so forth but truth is though, the numbers say otherwise especially if you look back at the last five Wrestlemania PPVs & such. You will see not one of them came remotely close to 1 million buyrate mark (& some of those Wrestlemanias had some strong line-ups unlike this past one). This past Wrestlemania wasn't selling well in the beginning (that was even reported) & had little hype going for it especially since the build-ups were just flat out weak. This probably would have been one of (if not) the worst buyrates for Wrestlemania UNTIL Vince made the big announcement of the special guest host & well...it was the one & only...The Rock! (Which by the way, that place went ballistic) His return made a media frenzy that the wrestling world & WWE haven't seen in ages.

The Rock didn't have a small impact on Wrestlemania's buyrates this year. He had an IMMENSE impact on the buyrates. The overall match-ups were highly weak & if anyone honestly thinks the matches would have put this Wrestlemania over the 1 million buyrate mark? Keep dreaming since the only match worth a damn was HHH/Taker. WWE threw The Rock into the Cena/Miz angle because it was piss poor storyline & it needed a savior & The Rock was clearly it. This upcoming Wrestlemania will also go over the 1 million buyrate mark as well because of The Rock being involved let alone having a match.

I don't think CM Punk is jealous BUT I think (actually, you can see it) he is truly bitter towards The Rock at the fact that a guy gone for 7 years can come in & take over like The Rock did simply because he sells & his name is bigger than anyone else on the roster by a landslide. The ratings, the buyrates, the attention draw & so forth all prove it (it's not even debatable). The Rock is without question the biggest draw hands down for the WWE & Vinnie Mac knows it. Punk can cry, whine, bitch, moan or whatever on his little pipe bomb but in the overall picture...he's just a small dot on the radar who's having a high spot right now but he isn't The Rock, isn't Austin & such by any stretch & more than likely never will be.

(Sorry, if this is a little long winded. Didn't expect it to be as long as it turned out.)

Well I said 1999-2002 because that's when he was in his prime and on top. It wouldn't make sense to say 2004 when that's when he was already out of WWE, making a few appearances.

I never said The Rock had a small part but i'm not going to sit here and say hes the reason Wrestlemaina was successful because he wasn't. Like CM Punk said, he only had a role to be a host. Its not like he was competing in a match or anything, he just helped with bringing a big name to Wrestlemaina. He did his job well but he still didn't "save" Wrestlemaina. We also got to see him on free TV on Raw when he was doing those trash talk battles with John Cena. If we got to see him making a few appearances on Raw to hype up Wrestlemaina and got to see the confrontation of him and Cena, why be hyped to see him at Wrestlemaina when he already did those things on Raw? If anything, i'm going to be ecited for the Wrestlemaina matches. Like I said, Rock maybe a box office hit but he wasn't the sole reason why the Wrestlemaina buyrates were great.
