CM Punk’s run in WWE came to an end after the Royal Rumble in 2014 when he was frustrated with the company, which led to him walking out. He had gone on record to say that he hated his time with the promotion. His remarks over the years certainly caught the attention of EC3 as well.
CM Punk has been the subject of controversy ever since he cut a shoot promo on Adam Page earlier this year. The brawl after AEW All Out was just another nail in the coffin for him.
While speaking on The Wrestling Outlaws, EC3 said that he believes CM Punk could never be pleased no matter what. He blasted Punk for being bitter about his WWE run.
“It’s impossible to please somebody that’ll never be pleased. That’s probably a reflection on him. I was just gonna say if you’re in the WWE, Vince, you know this well, you have to sacrifice a bit of your creative vision to play ball. But if you can get 70% of it in, 80% of it in, the way you want, man, that’s playing house money. He had the opportunity to do exactly what he wanted to do with the “pipebomb.
Like, very few people would be afforded that opportunity to say whatever the hell they want, make it seem as though it was a shoot, but it’s a work. Like, how many people had that Cart Blanche to go nuts, at least one opportunity to actually say to the world what they think is going on or what is really going on? It’s a legendary promo for that reason. You won a lot, have some satisfaction in those victories.”
Triple H has also softened up when it comes to CM Punk. We will have to wait and see if he will go to WWE or not. For the time being, that seems very unlikely.
