We discuss how the interview was put together, interesting tidbits that were cut out of the article, how Punk might draw on pay-per-view compared to other wrestlers-turned-fighters, his other wrestling-related articles on RollingStone.com, and just what the heck was Punk buying at Walgreens?

Lots of thoughts on some of the excellent Wrestlemania-centric WWE Network programming, the balance between letting fans tell the company what they want and commanding the fans on where to go, how badly Jerry Lawler is hurting WWE programming right now, the end of The Undertaker’s Streak, and a completely out-of-left-field idea for the future of John Cena!
