CM Punk’s comeback at the Survivor Series Premium Live Event sent shockwaves across the world of professional wrestling, which he followed up with an appearance on RAW last week. Now it appears Punnk was called out for his promo on RAW last week, which some felt was contrived.
A lot of things took place during last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, as new storylines were being built up. CM Punk also closed out the show with his first WWE promo in almost 10 years, which ended up receiving mixed responses.
While speaking on the Kliq This podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash talked about CM Punk’s promo on Monday Night RAW. He noted that it was very contrived and went against what Punk stood for.
“I thought the glad-handing on the way to the ring was not him,” Nash said of Punk. “I just thought … for somebody who’s so pipebomb, it just felt very contrived. At the end, he’s like, ‘Oh s**t, I better slip this in and have some credibility’ by [saying] ‘I’m not here to make friends. I’m here to make money.’ I’ve heard that before.”
CM Punk is set to make his return on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, which will be his first appearance in almost a decade. It remains to be seen what he will have to say on the show.
