On July 1st 2005, CM Punk and his then close personal friend Colt Cabana filmed a Ring of Honor Shoot Interview titled “CM Punk & Colt Cabana – Straight Shootin'”.

Back in 2005, political correctness wasn’t much of a thing at all, but most certainly nowhere near what it is nowadays, so it comes as no surprise that the context from such 18 year old conversations doesn’t always hold up very well nowadays.

The things said in this interview put former WWE Champion CM Punk in a very bad light and make him seem like a s*xist and misogynist, which – speaking of today – isn’t the case at all though.

Here’s a transcript of the most controversial parts from this 2005 Shoot Interview:

CM Punk: “The other unofficial member of the Gold Bond Mafia, of course if you ask any of us she’s not a member, but to her – this is her world. I couldn’t even tell you her real f**king name. (Punk holds up a picture of him groping a woman’s breasts) She is the ‘Bikini Girl’. That is strictly what we called her.”

Colt Cabana: “And when we first saw her, I’ll be honest, me and Chuck E Smooth were like ‘oh this chick’s totally hot, this chick’s totally hot’ – and we’ll tell the story of how we spent years with her – and at the end she was the ugliest, most disgusting girl of all time. I was grossed out by her.”

CM Punk: “I HATED her.”

Colt Cabana: “Everything that was about her was disgusting. But now the fact that – this proved the difference between some of the young guys growing up, and some of the guys – we understood the work of it. You know, how it’s a work, how it’s a business. And we got this girl every single week with her family van to drive us 300 miles every week. Not putting 1 mile on our car and us knowing that. Trying to not pay for gas as much as we could. And she loved- she wanted to train. Like maybe we got her in the ring once and, you know, made sure to hurt her so she’d be out another 2 months, but she’d still be with us ‘because she was dedicated’ and uh.”

CM Punk: “The point is- and you know this is gonna sound real degrading – but like, most women in the business are rats. You know I mean that’s a hard fact of life that you eventually realize and it was like – she got in the business. And at the time she was like ‘Oh I wanna be a wrestler & I wanna train’ — I never saw her get in the ring. You know, like it just never happened. And when we did get in the ring, all it took was a good forearm shot and then – that was it – she was done. So we always kinda kept her in check (Colt starts laughing), but she would be ‘Bikini Girl’. She would wear a bikini and walk around the ring when the show started & take people’s ring jackets and you know, sunglasses.”

Colt Cabana: “We’d make sure there was a spot for her, but- you know not a ‘spot’ but just whatever so she could drive us and no one would be spending – putting miles on our cars”

CM Punk: “No miles on our car. No gas out of our pocket. You know what I’m saying, because it was like – you know we weren’t getting paid more than you know sometimes 30-40-50 bucks from Ian and stuff like that. And we certainly weren’t getting trans’d (transported?) – so it was always like me, Chuck E, Cabana, Prazak, maybe occasionally somebody else. We’d always fill up that ‘Bikini Van’, you know & drive it down. And how many tickets would she get? None of us would ever drive. ‘Oh can one of you guys drive?’ …’Nahh you know I’m really tired’, ‘I just got off of work’ I mean, that was the thing where maybe somebody, a bunch of other young guys would probably just try to gangbang her and that’d be the last you’d see of her. We tried to get blood from that stone & we squeezed it like everything she was worth.”

Colt Cabana: “She’d always have like snacks for us too.”

CM Punk: “Yeah. Yeah. You know she’s like one of these girls that who like her aspiration in life was to have a kid!”

Colt Cabana: “Mom. She wanted to be a mom.”

CM Punk: “She wanted to be a mom so she thought she was kinda like the den mother and we let her f**kin believe that. You know, (puts fingers to head like devil’s horns) ‘Evil’ you know blah blah blah. And we would just randomly try to get her booked on shows whenever we could so we didn’t have to drive.”

Below is the complete shoot interview:

CM Punk went on to wrestle for World Wrestling Entertainment from 2006 until he refused to show up to work anymore in early 2014, which got him fired a few months later.

Phil Brooks then tried his luck in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), but after 2 UFC undercard-fighters defeated him pretty easily, Dana White didn’t give him another chance to fight in his promotion.

Punk then joined Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2021 and managed to win the AEW World Title twice (and got injured during both reigns), but got suspended over a backstage brawl that took place after the All Out 2022 PPV.
