• “He showed us no respect” – WWF Legend On CM Punk’s Attitude Towards Him
During an episode of his ‘Oh You Didn’t Know’ podcast, WWF Attitude Era Legend Road Dogg talked about the New Age Outlaws, him & Billy Gunn, reuniting for another run in 2014.
During that run, they had to work with CM Punk, and Road Dogg claimed that Punk disrespected them backstage.
Below is what the 2019 WWE Hall Of Famer said:
“He’s not a nice person. He’s not good. I don’t know. If you’ve been friends with somebody for so long and all of a sudden y’all are in a lawsuit over stuff and you can’t just talk, I don’t understand it.
But that’s not the straw that broke the camel’s back. For me, it was when we actually had to work with him in our 2014 run and seeing the attitude that he had towards me and Billy (Gunn).
Granted, we were not Hall of Famers at the time, but we were on our way to be for sure, and we were The New Age Outlaws. At least we’d been there as long as he had, and he showed us no respect. He showed us disrespect. I mean, that was that. You don’t get a second chance at that. I’m showing you respect. Why aren’t you showing me respect?
But the truth of it is, dude, respect is a two way street, and if you don’t give it, you dang sure ain’t getting it, not from me.
You got one shot at that with me and Billy. He talked to us negatively. If I hadn’t had a job there, like if I wouldn’t have been newly hired, I would have probably fought him.
I feel relatively confident that I would have come out on top and this was prior to his training. This was prior to his karate training.”
