CM Punk has been the talk of the wrestling world for the past month since he made his return from injury at the AEW Quake by the Lake special episode of Dynamite, confronting Jon Moxley.
The following week, Punk allegedly went ‘off script’ in his promo, calling out Hangman Adam Page in an unplanned spot, before the issues with them became public.
Things escalated even further at the AEW All Out media scrum, when CM Punk went on an angry rant towards Colt Cabana, Adam Page and the Executive Vice Presidents of the company.
WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg spoke about Punk on the latest episode of the Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, when he said that Punk ‘is not a nice person’, and how he showed him and Billy Gunn ‘disrespect’ back in 2014.
“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.”
Road Dogg recently made his return to WWE after he was released back in January, taking on the role of Senior Vice President of Live Events.
