Jim Ross reveals reason why CM Punk was dealt a tough hand by officials (WWE News)
Previous WWE star CM Punk has been a hotly debated issue of discussion this week, as he showed up at Starrcast III this previous end of the week and plunked down for a tell-all meeting, during which he talked about his past, his time in WWE, the sprouting AEW versus WWE war, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
On the most recent scene of “Barbecuing JR,” host and WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross talked finally about CM Punk, and why it was hard for Punk to get a decent deal during his initial days in WWE.
Ross likewise remarked on the observation that CM Punk was a “high support” ability in WWE, and contrasted Punk with Hall of Famer Steve Austin, who had a comparable behind the stage persona in the organization.
“I know that sometimes if you got talent that you can say is ‘high maintenance’ — you know, Stone Cold Steve Austin was high maintenance,” revealed Ross. “He didn’t trust anybody. He had a very great sense what he was doing, what he could do well, what he couldn’t do well. He also had a feeling about how he interacted with — Austin was not the most social guy in the world. He became that more often because when you become more accepted, then it’s easier to get more involved in this thing from an emotional standpoint. But Punk was a lot like Austin in that regard.”
