• Brodie Lee Reveals What CM Punk Said To Him In WWE That He Didn’t Believe
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, new AEW wrestler Brodie Lee (fka Luke Harper in WWE) revealed what CM Punk said to him in WWE, that he didn’t believe back then.
Below is what Brodie said:
“CM Punk once told me when we were feuding in 2014, I think, he goes, ‘Just so you know, man, everything in WWE could always be better.’ And it’s the same thing that rolls through my head all the time.
Back then, I’m like, ‘No, f*** this guy, there’s no way that’s true,’ and it’s been true almost every time.”
