"They're not Twitter wars. They're not. The Merriman thing isn't even anything. That dates back a couple of years now. We were in Costa Rica, there was a bunch of us lounging around a pool. I think it was me and Ted DiBiase, we were watching this goof run back and forth. He would literally go into the little poolside gym, do some bicep curls and then walk around us, hoping that some of the Divas would notice. A couple of the girls got up to leave to go get ready for the show and some big fat white guy came out of nowhere and I saw him handing out business cards to the girls."
Punk also said that former WWE diva Gail Kim got up to leave and Merriman went up to her, which led to an uncomfortable situation where Kim was trying her best to get away from Merriman and avoid him.
