WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff has accused CM Punk of being “f*cking whiny” and says his comments directed at Colt Cabana are “like high school sh*t.”
CM Punk caused a storm at the post-All Out media scrum when he took aim at a laundry list of people including Adam Page, The Elite, MJF, and his former friend Colt Cabana.
Cabana and Punk had been close friends for many years until that friendship ended in acrimonious fashion with the two men filing lawsuits against one another as a result of them being sued by WWE doctor, Chris Amann.
Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff addressed CM Punk’s remarks and thinks his comments about his former friends just sounded like whining:
“It’s so f*cking whiny. ‘We have to get up here and address this…’ You know, it’s like this is like high school sh*t. And obviously something clearly Phil [CM Punk] has left some scar tissue and I get that. [He is] Disappointed, feels betrayed possibly, who knows?”
“I don’t know what the story was and who did what to who, it doesn’t really matter. But at some point, you got to let that sh*t go bro. You can’t let it get in the way of how you’re perceived as a character. And I just want to say and I don’t have anything personally against Punk, I lost some respect for him based on some stupid sh*t that he said but it doesn’t mean I dislike him or want him to fail or whatever.”
“But here’s a guy who’s supposed to be a baby face whining, it’s f*cking whining. Like if my 10-year-old kid came home from school and whined to me like that, I’d grab him by the ear, I’d take him outside and we’d have a talk about being so f*cking whiny. Not a good look, especially for a babyface.”
Punk’s media scrum comments caused a commotion backstage with “a melee” taking place and reports have suggested that there could be “pending legal issues” as a result of what happened.
