Maven Recalls CM Punk’s 2014 WWE Exit & Issues With Ryback



In his latest YouTube video, former WWE Superstar Maven reflected on the famous podcast interview CM Punk did with Colt Cabana following his WWE exit in 2014.

That interview eventually led to a lawsuit from WWE doctor Chris Amann as well as, ultimately, the dissolution of Punk and Cabana’s friendship.

During the podcast, Punk called Ryback an unsafe worker; in an oft-repeated quote, Punk said he asked Ryback if he intentionally injured Punk or was just “dumb as f**k,” to which Punk claimed Ryback responded, “I’m dumb as f**k.”

You can check out some highlights from Maven below:

On Punk calling Ryback an unsafe worker: “Not wanting to work with someone because you think they might hurt you, yeah, that’s a thing. I don’t know Ryback. I never worked with Ryback; I don’t know if he is safe or not safe. I understand why he might be a little bit hesitant working Ryback… I would give anything to know if those words actually came out of his mouth. ‘Yes, I admit it. I’m dumb as f**k, you got me.’”

On Punk’s advocating for himself at the time: “Punk is someone who demands perfection out of himself, and I understand when you demand perfection in yourself, it’s only natural to want that perfection to come from not only the people that you’re working with but the people that you’re working for.”

On Punk’s decision to walk out of WWE: “If he wasn’t walking out on anything, I give him credit for actually walking out at the best time for him and at the best time for others in the company; it’s not like he was holding up a program with someone.”
