8. Ryback Says CM Punk’s Negative Comments Towards Him Did A Lot of Damage, Thanks Chris Jericho For Standing Up For Him
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about how CM Punk’s negative comments towards him did a lot of damage. Ryback thanked Chris Jericho for standing up for him but wasn’t happy with WWE not revealing the truth.
For those who don’t know, Punk claimed that Ryback intentionally hurt him during their feud and took 20 years off his career. Below is what Ryback said:
“Those Punk comments did a lot of damage to me. CM Punk has a tremendous following. When you have as many followers as he has, and you say something about somebody, they’re going to believe everything you say. To this day, I don’t know why Punk tied me in with his whole thing against the WWE. I feel like part of it was he was his unhappiest with the company when he was working with me, and I kind of got tied into all of it. I was always upset that the WWE never went out of its way to say, ‘That’s not true about this guy.’ Guys like Jericho, who have been in the ring with me, went to bat for me, and I can’t thank them enough for that – but why couldn’t the company do that, especially when I took the hit on that? That always bothered me that they never tried to clear that up.”
