Road Dogg on CM Punk and feuds

In an interview with the, 'Oh You Didn't Know' Podcast, Road Dogg talked about CM Punk and his criticism of The Rock. “I believe Punk was doing two things: going into business for himself in a good way,” he said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc.

“Like starting a conversation, and it was basically starting a conversation with the grassroots wrestling fan of this big Hollywood guy went away, now he’s coming back and they want me, the workhorse, to wrestle him.’ You know what I mean? It was the plumber vs.

the movie star. CM Punk is a person who knows how to draw attention to himself. “He needed something, the story needed something and so whether that was true or not, I liked it. I thought it made something there where there might not have been otherwise.

And look, Punk is a guy that will cause trouble. He will say things to wrinkle your feathers and he’s done me that way, and they always say, ‘Don’t let anybody push your buttons unless you let him,’ and I agree with that.

I let him, but he can do that, so I can understand how Rock being a little stand-offish and Punk, being a little — I guess stand-offish is a nice way to put it too. I can understand there being frustrations of putting that stuff together”.

Road Dogg recounts an anecdote

Road Dogg also recalled an interesting anecdote. “Me and CM Punk almost went to blows when I was a producer on a live event, and we had to get called into Vince’s office at TV and make nice and shake hands,” he said.

“I never thought Punk was what Punk was, but again, I know he is what he is. I know he’s hugely successful in this industry and over. I give him all the credit in the world. I just didn’t get it. I see it now. I still don’t get it, but I see it so I know it’s true, but me and him didn’t see eye to eye.

He was the champion at the time and it was about how he was carrying himself as a champion, and I had a discussion with him that he obviously didn’t like being talked to that way, so the next time I saw him, it was not yelling in my face, but I was yelling in his face. I’ll put it at that. He was a lot more professional and calm than I was at the time”.
