CM Punk and Roddy Piper both commented on Piper being left off the "Top 25 Masters of the Mic" list on WWE.com. Piper posted:
I don't know if this is true. Told the WWE put out a book of greatest mic men. Told I was not no.1. Lost the last piece of respect & cred. LOL..Before this petty who is best goes to far, cause I love them all. Imagine if the WWE would let Rock, Austin,Piper, Cena do a Pit! Magic. Simple. All there interviews were scripted! There lay the difference! "#2. The book is full of Sh*t. And everyone, including all the boys know it!
Meanwhile, Punk posted to his Twitter:
that list is a joke because Piper isn't number one. Typical WWE revisionist history/political favoritism.
