Bill Simmons of Grantland.com interviews CM Punk

"Well, hi."

I’ve been waiting for this one for about a week: Bill Simmons, famous from ESPN.com’s Page Two and creator of Grantland.com, interviewed CM Punk and posted the audio from it today. (Click here to listen.) Punk discusses his new theme song, Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality,” how much of his infamous Monday Night Raw promo from last month was planned, how close he really was to leaving WWE to go home and sit on his couch, who influenced his career both as a wrestler and as a child, and what went into his invasion of the San Diego Comic-Con. He also puts over various members of the roster, so listen up for those. Simmons has a very laid-back interview style, and Punk seems to be totally on the level here; it’s an interesting listen and worth checking out.

Maryse files for order of protection… wow, what is that bikini bottom, a Band-Aid?

Now seriously, who would stalk *this*?

According to Prowrestling.net, WWE Diva Maryse has filed for an order of protection against a man she’s calling a “crazy stalker.” I’M NOT CRAZY!

Maryse alleges that 61 year-old Lee Silber has sent her threatening letters and left more than 50 voice mails on her cell phone. Silber offered to give Maryse a six-figure payoff and a 100 carat diamond ring to prove he is her friend.

I also don’t look 61, either.

Look, Maryse is hotter than donut grease, but are we ever going to come to a day and age when even the craziest of the crazies don’t think of stalking as the appropriate way to make friends and meet people? I mean, sure, I slept outside Jim Ross’ hotel room door at the Ramada in Waterloo, Iowa, this past weekend, but that was only in case he had an emergency or needed a foot massage, nothing weird. -Eric
