CM Punk recently conducted an interview with Laurence Holmes and spoke about his relationships with Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar.
Here's what he had to say about McMahon:
"I can't read the guy's mind, but I do think that it's pretty clear that yeah, absolutely, he does look at me differently. How can he not? The relationship is certainly different and that's something that's always evolving. My relationship with Vince today is different than it was in April. It's something that constantly changes and constantly evolves."
"I never dealt with Brock. I don't think I met Brock until he came back to WWE, so I really have no comparison. There are a lot of people back there who say me and Brock are very, very similar. Unapproachable, bad attitude, a kind of cloud hanging over our heads. But to me, he's a sweetheart. I have no bad stories about Brock yet."
And about the perception of his attitude:
"No, that's just what it is. That's my role here. I am who I am. I do not apologize for it. If I'm in a bad mood, I wear it on my sleeve. That's just who I am. It's not like I run around and I treat people poorly and smack coffees out of people's hands and piss in people's Cheerios or anything like that. If I'm in a bad mood, I'm in a bad mood. That's just the way it is. And I'm not overly malicious about it. I've developed this, I don't know, it's kind of sometimes the outside view of who I am and it doesn't bother me at all. The people who truly know me, they know me and the ones who are misinformed, I really kind of care less about what they say about me."
