• Hulk Hogan Opens Up About His Heat With CM Punk

During a recent appearance on the Steve Austin Show podcast, WWE Hall of Famer “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan opened up about his heat with former WWE wrestler CM Punk.

Hogan noted that Punk had heat with him because he didn’t interact with Punk backstage at RAW’s 15th anniversary show.

Hogan said he was dealing with a lot of real-life issues at that time and admits he unknowingly made a mistake.

Below is what Hogan said:

“I was so worried about my home life and the problems I had at home and I don’t mean to call anybody out, but stuff happens.

When I went back for RAW’s 15th Anniversary, I walked into the dressing room there and there was a guy named CM Punk. I didn’t know who he was and I heard I had heat because when I came back I didn’t say hello to him.

When I walked in that dressing room, all I could think about was that I needed to get home and fix my life falling apart. I don’t remember seeing, meeting, talking, or disrespecting anybody that day, but I had to live with that because I was in that space at that time.”

For those who don’t remember, Hogan saved Hornswoggle from The Great Khali on RAW’s 15th Anniversary show (which took place on December 10, 2007).
