CM Punk parted ways with WWE after the Royal Rumble in 2014 after being frustrated with the company, which led to him walking out on it. Punk had made it clear on so many occasions that he never wanted to wrestle again. That all changed as he ended up debuting in AEW.
CM Punk has been the subject of controversy ever since he cut a shoot promo on Adam Page last month. Things have progressively gotten worse for him since then. In fact, there’s a chance of him getting fired as well.
Speaking on the latest episode of the Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Road Dogg talked about his time working with CM Punk. Dogg stated that he believes Punk is not a nice person.
“He’s not a nice person. He’s not good. I don’t know. If you’ve been friends with somebody for so long and all of a sudden y’all are in a lawsuit over stuff and you can’t just talk, I don’t understand it. But that’s not the straw that broke the camel’s back. For me, it was when we actually had to work with him in our 2014 run and seeing the attitude that he had towards me and Billy. Granted, we were not Hall of Famers at the time, but we were on our way to be for sure, and we were The New Age Outlaws. At least we’d been there as long as he had, and he showed us no respect. He showed us disrespect. I mean, that was that. You don’t get a second chance at that. I’m showing you respect. Why aren’t you showing me respect?”
“But the truth of it is, dude, respect is a two way street, and if you don’t give it, you dang sure ain’t getting it, not from me. You got one shot at that with me and Billy. He talked to us negatively. If I hadn’t had a job there, like if I wouldn’t have been newly hired, I would have probably fought him. I feel relatively confident that I would have come out on top and this was prior to his training. This was prior to his karate training.”
A lot of people want CM Punk fired as well following the backstage brawl at AEW All Out. We will have to wait and see what will become of CM Punk.
