WWE star C.M. Punk spoke with ESPN's Jon Robinson. The following are the highlights of the interview, which can be read in full at

-Punk on a third match with The Rock: "I don't think it's in the cards, but I wouldn't say no to it."

-Punk on teaming with Brock Lesnar: "I'd love to. That's actually something we're discussing, yes."

-The WrestleMania match he's most looking forward to watching: "Fandango versus Chris Jericho. You probably don’t believe me, but it’s true. I can't remember the last time somebody debuted at WrestleMania, and Fandango is actually one hell of a talent, so I’m excited to see where this goes. Besides, it’s Chris Jericho. You can’t go wrong with a Chris Jericho match."

-Punk on which WrestleMania 29 match will be the most talked about: "My match. I’m out to prove people wrong again. I don’t think it’s a secret that I wanted to be in the main event at WrestleMania and I don’t think it’s a secret that people are like, 'But you’re in one of the main events, you’re wrestling The Undertaker.' But I’m not one for consolation prizes. I’m out to steal the show, and I’m out to do the improbable. If I’m able to do that, that remains to be seen, but we’ll find out."

Powell's POV: Punk also stated that he got in trouble for performing the piledriver on John Cena, but he did not go into details. Rather, he spoke about why the move was banned and why he wanted to use the move anyway. He also spoke about the potential of The Shield, Paul Heyman, his childhood WrestleMania memories, WWE teaming up with 2K Sports for future video game titles.
