– WWE Champion CM Punk did a media call this week to promote WWE ’13, his new WWE DVD and the Hell In a Cell pay-per-view. Here are some highlights courtesy of Slam Wrestling:

Facing Ryback at Hell In a Cell:
“We don’t know what kind of a motor he’s got either, you know. Most of his matches he’s had have been like, what, a couple of minutes. I’m a marathon runner. We’re going to get him on his bike to see if he can survive.”

His Marvel Comics debut on November 21st:
“It was cool. Comic books and pro wrestling — and music, I guess — have always been the things I’ve been into. So obviously to do the pro wrestling thing, it’s been my career, and now to write for Marvel Comics, though it was just an intro. But we’re working on other stuff, future projects. It’s pretty cool. A dream come true.”

What he has left to accomplish:
“The WrestleMania main event. That’s all that I’ve got left.”

His place in WWE history:
“I can only hope that history will be kind to me when I look back on my career. I certainly don’t look at it like, ‘Oh, I’m a legend,’ ‘Oh, I’m this, which means I’m going to be that.’ I just kind of do my job, I’m confident, obviously, that I know what I’m doing. My fingers are on the pulse of what the people want. When it’s all said and done and I can look back on my career, hopefully people will remember me fondly.”
