Road Dogg Critiques CM Punk’s Mentality For The Business, More



On the latest edition of his “Oh…You Didn’t Know” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg Brian James shared his thoughts on CM Punk in light of the backstage drama following the AEW All Out 2022 media scrum. James highlighted a couple of situations that involved Punk being disrespectful to him and Billy Gunn in 2014 when they were still in WWE and a point where he physically wanted to fight Punk.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

His thoughts on CM Punk’s mentality about wrestling: “I also heard if you don’t want to be the champion, then there’s no reason for you to be in this business.’ Well there’s only one champion! If that was the mentality of everybody in the industry, there’d be one person on the card. If you’re coming into this with the CM Punk mentality of ‘I need to be a main event, I need to be a champion,’ you’ve got bigger fish to fry.”

Road Dogg on the falling out between Punk and Colt Cabana: “If you’ve been friends with somebody for so long and all of a sudden you’re in a lawsuit over stuff and you can’t just talk to [one another]? I don’t understand it.”

Road Dogg on CM Punk being disrespectful to him and Billy Gunn before they teamed together in WWE: “Seeing the attitude that he had towards me and Billy, granted, we were not Hall of Famers at the time, but we were on our way to be for sure. I mean that was that. You don’t get a second chance at that. I’m showing you respect, why aren’t you showing me respect? Respect is a two-way street, and if you don’t give it, you dang sure ain’t getting it. Not from me, and you got one shot at that with me and Billy, and it was just like he talked to us negatively.”

Road Dogg on wanting to fight Punk at the time: “If I wouldn’t have been newly hired, I would have probably fought him and I feel relatively confident that I would have come out on top. That’s enough burying Punk. He’s burying himself good enough right now.”
