• “Somebody needs to hand CM Punk his f**king a$$ in AEW” – Former WWF Tag Team Champion
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, Old School ECW/WWF Tag Team Legend Bubba Ray Dudley talked about fellow ECW Legend Taz getting into a storyline with CM Punk on AEW TV.
Here’s what the 2018 WWE Hall of Famer had to say about the new ‘Team Taz vs. CM Punk’ storyline:
“They’re all gonna get the rub from being in the ring with Punk, and since none of them can hang on the microphone. Starks might do a decent job. I’m willing to sit back and give Starks that chance because I think Starks is witty on the mic. But for any of them that can’t hang, that’s why Taz is there.
We all know that Taz is amazing on the microphone. He’s a great announcer, called WrestleManias for a reason. He’s an awesome promo guy. I’ve pointed out some of the things that I didn’t like because [Taz] was putting himself in front of the talent or putting himself in the front of the segment. He was the star in the beginning, he’s not supposed to be the star, he’s the co-star to help get the younger star over. We’re going to see him in that light.
Taz doing all the talking like a Bobby Heenan or any of the great managers who did the talking and stood behind the talent, and Taz can go head-to-head with Punk. Then we get the Starks or Hobbs in the ring with Punk. I want to see Hobbs beat the sh*t out of Punk. You see the beauty of Punk is, and when the time is right, somebody needs to hand Punk his f**king a$$.”
