WWE fans, wrestlers, and commentators are all excited to see what the future holds with Vince McMahon announcing his retirement from his company and Triple H becoming the CEO. However, CM Punk is still worries about drastic changes in WWE.
On the recent “Absolute Geek” podcast, Punk scoffed at the idea of McMahon surrendering control of WWE, suggesting that his former boss will continue to run the promotion from the shadows.
“You think because he [McMahon] tweeted that ‘I’m retired’ that he’s not going to be hands-on, and he’s not gonna [run the show]?” Punk asked in response to a question on McMahon’s retirement. “Sure, we all are [hopeful of a change], but I don’t think the structure there…what’s the word I’m looking for… I don’t think the culture there changes. At all. I think it is what it is.”
“I’ll put it to you like this – people are going to be real fu—g mad about this, but f–k it,” Punk said. “Mercedes [Sasha Banks] and Trinity [Naomi] leave, and they announce on SmackDown that ‘Gosh darn, we’re so disappointed in them, they really let our fans down.’ Brock Lesnarsplits, comes back obviously, I think he worked the show [SmackDown], but where was Michael Cole saying ‘Man, Brock Lesnar really let these fans down?’”
“I walked out, they went on TV and they called me a quitter. What’s changed?” Punk asked. “What’s the difference? You’re gonna attack this two poor f—-ing women because they kinda had enough and walked? They got bigger balls than everybody there. So what’s changed, you know? There’s nothing much that’s changed.”
Punk continuing, “There’s those that say it and there’s those that have sex. The those that lick the boots and have the audacity to travel on live tv and say that regarding those 2 women? They’re f—-ng cowards and bootlickers. That s–t is ridiculous. Why didn’t they are doing it for Brock? They did it on behalf of me, you know?”
