• CM Punk On Apologizing To The Rock For Being A D*ck During Their 2013 Feud
During his appearance at Starrcast III, former WWE wrestler CM Punk talked about his relationship with The Rock and apologizing to “The Great One” for being a d*ck during their 2013 feud.
Below is what Punk said:
“When I wrestled Rock, I remember — I don’t know if I had met him, but he’d been around. The night before it was requested I go to his hotel room and he’s got the entire suite. It’s him, Brian Gewirtz, it’s his assistant, there’s like two other people in the room and I’m immediately like, ‘F*ck, I’m out numbered.’
I remember somebody I didn’t know from his team walking up to me and handing me my promo, and I’m like ‘Wooo, buddy!’ We start talking and I feel like it was a Hollywood kind of setting, like they were doing a table read. This is how this dude operates, but this is me, and this is how I operate.
This was a crash course of me and Rock getting in front of each other for the first time. It wasn’t negative so to speak, but it was very much like, ‘No, this isn’t how I do things,’ and him being like, ‘Oh okay, well, cool, this is how I do things.’
I said, ‘Okay, we’ll try and figure it out because if you say this, this, and this about me, then I’m going to say this, this, and this about you.’ And he was like, ‘Well, alright!’ I was like, ‘No offence, I don’t know who these guys are and they’re writing material for me when I think this is the way we should go.’
So, I think we kind of pushed all that aside, and me and him had kind of a one-on-one conversation in a crowded room, which is f*ckin’ uncomfortable.
I think he respected the fact that I wasn’t backing down, I wasn’t refusing to do anything, but just like, ‘Hey, could we maybe do this a different way?’
He was great and he was fun to work with, and I liked working with him.”
