Paul Heyman spoke to Machinima Sports prior to the SummerSlam pay-per-view about the love lost between himself and CM Punk.
“I don’t hate CM Punk, I love CM Punk. All rebellious personalities need to prove their own worth to themselves.” Heyman said. “CM Punk just needs time to find out on his own that he’s not the best in the world without Paul Heyman… [After Punk's match with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam] I will forgive CM Punk, I will accept CM Punk back. I will rebuild CM Punk and I shall take CM Punk to the main event at WrestleMania.”
