Road Dogg began his career in WWE as a wrestler towards the end of 1994. He eventually transitioned to a backstage producer role in 2014 and also worked as a WWE Performance center trainer, which suited him well. The WWE Hall of Famer also accused CM Punk o virtue signalling.
Recently, CM Punk shared his thoughts on WWE treating Sasha Banks and Naomi after they walked out on Monday Night RAW. He called people in WWE cowards and bootlickers.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Road Dogg addressed CM Punk’s comments and noted how it wasn’t fair to compare Banks and Naomi’s situation to Brock Lesnar. He also accused CM Punk of virtue signalling.
“Only in WWE, do you get to go, ‘No, I don’t like that’ and walk away,” said James. “I’m including Brock in that as well. Like I know he came back. I don’t know what conversation was held, but you know. I also imagine everyone on social media jumping right to — CM Punk as well, let me throw his name in there to start some social media buzz. He jumped right to, ‘Oh how come they didn’t do the same to Brock Lesnar like they did to Sasha and Naomi.’ I think it was a totally different — it’s apples and oranges, you can’t compare the two. It’s not fair to compare the two. Anything to make the WWE the devil, especially on Twitter.
“It’s not applicable. Don’t bring it up CM Punk. Do you know what I mean? I think that’s virtue signaling like I’m going to say this, ‘Why aren’t they equal to the women?’ Well, look it’s not the same, so it’s not fair to make it the same.”
Even Paige brought attention to this hypocrisy displayed by WWE. Banks was advised to go to AEW, so we’ll have to wait and see whether she will end up there or not in the end.
