On a recent edition of Bauer & Pollock, former WWE writer Court Bauer shared a story of CM Punk’s WWE tryout match from 2005. He revealed that the DX duo buried Punk as they didn’t know who he was at that time.
“One time, Triple H along with HBK buried CM Punk. I think it was his 2005 tryout,” Bauer said. “Maybe he didn’t know the name, and wasn’t familiar with who it was but they buried him.”
He said that he, Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis, Triple H & Shawn Michaels were watching Punk’s tryout match in the Gorilla position, and he compared it to one of DX’s goofy skits.
“They annihilated his look and his work and I’m like you just sunk the guy in front of the Chairman!”
