In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani as part of The MMA Hour, WWE superstar CM Punk discussed several topics, including the differences in the WWE locker room since he made his return to the company.

“It is friendlier, you have to realize to talk about the way the culture is now, you have to talk about the way the culture was when I got there when I showed up, it was very much shark tank, cut-throat, super competitive and everybody looked at me like, f*** you, why are you here, you don’t belong here.

I was on television with nothing but top guys, I mean Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Kane, and there’s probably like 5 other guys I’m one hundred percent forgetting, it was brutal, and to try to scratch and claw and get recognized and noticed, and to get that little bit of TV time I was allotted, it was a lot different.

Now, I think it’s more laid back, I think that’s probably the best way to say it, it’s a relaxed atmosphere.”
