He may be making bank as a gigolo now, but there was a time when Buff Bagwell was a professional wrestler, and a moderately successful one at that. Because of this, when he does media it is inevitable that he'll be asked about the current product put out by the likes of WWE and TNA, not to mention its top stars.
That's what happened during a recent appearance on The Shoot podcast, and he said some really dumb things.
Let's start with his thoughts on John Cena:
"I don't think he's a Rock, I don't think he is a Sting, I don't think he is a Goldberg, I don't think he is a Stone Cold. But I think he's bigger than a Buff Bagwell. I really do. Now, mainly because of the way they've pushed him, I give him credit (for) being bigger than me. When you lay out the facts, no he's not as big as The Rock, no he's not as big as Stone Cold, no he's not as big as these other guys I'm talking about. Then again, you give me the same push i think i would be just as big as John Cena. He's not that cornerstone guy. He's not that super mega superstar that The Rock has become. He's not that super mega superstar Stone Cold had become. He's just WWE's number one guy and with a little bit of help, a lot of guys could be that guy. He's just got the look, he's got the ability, and he was at the right place at the right time to be their poster child."
And now CM Punk:
"He's too small. That's why they kept him and The Rock as far apart as they could until they had to wrestle because when you really stand Rock against CM Punk in the ring, they just don't look like it fits. You've got a 260-pound guy in The Rock down to a buck 80-85 CM Punk. Nothing against being 185 but you know TNA's got a division called the X Division for guys like that. I think that's a good thing to have, but as far as being the world heavyweight champion, CM Punk should not be. He's not big enough, he don't look the part. He's heard... I bet if you ask him and he told the truth, he's heard a million times 'wow, you're not as big as I thought you were.' That's not good for pro wrestling. You've gotta be big, you know? To make it believable, to make it more realistic. I don't think he's that. He just doesn't carry that kind of power."
I have no words for this. I'll let you Cagesiders do your thing in the comments below.
