Road Dogg "Relatively Confident" He Would Have Beaten CM Punk In A Fight
Things could've gotten rowdy between Road Dogg and CM Punk
WWE Hall of Famer Brian 'Road Dogg' James has elaborated on the past issues he had working with CM Punk in WWE.
Speaking about the heat between the two of them on the most recent episode of his Oh You Didn't Know podcast, the D-O-Double G said:
"He's not a nice person. He's not good. I don't know. If you've been friends with somebody for so long and all of a sudden y'all are in a lawsuit over stuff and you can't just talk, I don't understand it. But that's not the straw that broke the camel's back. For me, it was when we actually had to work with him in our 2014 run and seeing the attitude that he had towards me and Billy. Granted, we were not Hall of Famers at the time, but we were on our way to be for sure, and we were The New Age Outlaws. At least we'd been there as long as he had, and he showed us no respect. He showed us disrespect. I mean, that was that. You don't get a second chance at that. I'm showing you respect. Why aren't you showing me respect?".
Continuing, the current SVP of WWE Live Events said he would have fought the Straight-Edge Superstar, if he hadn't been newly hired:
"But the truth of it is, dude, respect is a two-way street, and if you don't give it, you dang sure ain't getting it, not from me. You got one shot at that with me and Billy. He talked to us negatively. If I hadn't had a job there, like if I wouldn't have been newly hired, I would have probably fought him. I feel relatively confident that I would have come out on top and this was prior to his training. This was prior to his karate training".
Punk is currently serving a suspension due to the fight between him, Ace Steel and The Elite (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks) following Punk's explosive post-All Out media scrum appearance.
As well as being suspended, Punk is expected to be out of action for up to eight months time after undergoing surgery to repair a torn triceps.
