CM Punk is one of the most popular and controversial wrestlers of the modern era. The 43-year-old from Chicago became famous thanks to his experience in WWE, where he captured myriad titles. Punk has in fact held the World Heavyweight Championship three times, the WWE Championship twice and once each the ECW Championship, the Intercontinental Championship and the World Tag Team Championship, making him the 19th athlete in history to have completed the Triple Crown.
His second reign as WWE Champion, which lasted a whopping 434 days, is the sixth longest in the history of the belt. After taking a long hiatus from wrestling, he returned in 2021 by signing a contract with All Elite Wrestling.
Within his podcast, Road Dogg revealed that CM Punk didn't have a fantastic reputation backstage WWE.
Road Dogg on CM Punk
“I heard from many quarters that it was not easy to work with CM Punk” - said Road Dogg.
"I don't know exactly what happened behind the scenes, because I wasn't close to the WWE environment in those years. However, I was told by several people that it was difficult to interact with Punk because of his character” - he added.
A comment on the new course initiated by Triple H could not be missing: “Everyone calls him Triple H, but I call him Hunter. HHH has learned a lot from being in contact with Vince Mcmahon and I think he is ready to be the boss.
Now that Vince is gone, it will be interesting to see how his leadership transforms. What's the difference between the two? Well, Triple H is a great friend of mine. We have a special relationship that will never break. At the same time, The Game has always separated business from friendship when we have worked together" Road Dogg finally admitted that he has always been jealous of Chris Jericho: “He and I were very different.
I can't deny that I was jealous of his success of him, not least because he got him push him through some wins against me. Now no one remembers it anymore, but it bothered me a lot at the time." WWE legend Jim Cornette has reviewed CM Punk's surprise return from last Wednesday's AEW Dynamite.
"And for 45 seconds, again we were transported back to a wrestling program, because here comes [CM] Punk - the returning champion, the conquering hero. He's running down the ramp, the people are blowing, it's a big pop. He makes a big comeback, all the heels bumped for him, it's laid out perfectly," Cornette noted.
