• Jim Ross On Triple H Having A Problem With CM Punk’s “Soft, Over-Sized A$$”
During a recent edition of Grillin’ JR podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross opened up about Triple H having a problem with CM Punk’s physical appearance.
Below is what Good Ol’ JR said:
“Hunter [is the one that said his a$$ is too big]. It was all about the workout sh*t, man and how he looked in an 8 x 10 or whatever. He’s not going to look the same because he’s not the same, and if all you’re going to do is put out androids all looking alike what the hell do you got? You got no uniqueness, you’ve got no individuality — so, that was the whole deal.
I think the consensus was that this guy might not be in great shape because he looks soft. And I’m saying that his softness as far as his a$$ is concerned – his a$$ issue was a non-issue in my view. It was basically based on the fact that the perception was he had an over-sized, soft a$$.
Silly as it sounds, it’s so absurd that it doesn’t make any sense, and I swear to God, folks, I’m not making this up. But that was the whole deal and then finally, through hell and high water, he plowed through this bullsh*t and became the star that he is.
He had a Hall of Fame level career there, there’s no doubt about that. Will he ever be in the Hall of Fame? Eh, I wouldn’t bet on that one. And I’m not so sure that he would accept it if it was offered.”
