While promoting AEW Grand Slam, CM Punk made no attempt to hide his shade of Hulk Hogan. While talking to “Rasslin with Brandon F. Walker,” the Second City Saint said that Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin were some of the biggest draws in pro wrestling. Then he also admitted that Hogan was probably the bigger draw over The Texas Rattlesnake before slinging some serious shade at the two-time WWE Hall of Famer.
“Hulk Hogan is a bigger star than Steve Austin but then you look at business periods and eras and box office receipts and all that other stuff. I think Hogan’s a piece of sh*t so obviously, I’m gonna be like Steve Austin, yay. But that’s another podcast.”
We’re not sure what CM Punk thought about WWE bringing Hulk Hogan into the fold after it was revealed that he admitted to being a racist, but his words here were a pretty clear indicator of how he feels. Hulk Hogan still a lot of fans, but even his WrestleMania appearance was met with boos.
CM Punk is set to take on Will Hobbs at AEW Rampage Grand Slam. That two-hour show will be taped during the Grand Slam event in Arthur Ashe Stadium. We will have full coverage right here at Ringside News.
