PUNK ON ROCK, TYSON ON BROADWAY, RAW IN MILWAUKEE NEXT WEEK AND MORE WWE NEWS

CM Punk was interviewed by SportstownChicago.com. When asked about The Rock getting a title shot at the Royal Rumble, Punk commented, "I think it's fantastic since he's getting a title shot against me if I last that long. It's nice to be vocally against somebody who's just being handed things and then being the roadblock. Obviously, I was very vocal about Dwayne just marching in and getting to cherry-pick what days he shows up when he actually wants to be motivated to work and now he's going to be in the ring with me. There's no bringing 30 percent and there's no days off. It's me, it's 100 percent me and it's going to be a challenge for Dwayne." The entire interview can be found by clicking here.
