The original shots have been deleted, but nothing is ever really gone from the internet. Certainly not CM Punk telling Miz to “go s*** a blood money covered d*** in Saudi Arabia”.
Let’s back up. The incident started when the WWE on Fox Twitter account posted a clip of The A-Lister talking to the camera after his appearance on the Jan. 7 edition of FS1’s WWE Backstage. He remarked that he felt it was the best episode of the show ever, and bantered with Renee Young & Paige about others that might have been better. While none of the options offered specifically mentioned Punk, Miz still said:
“Oh, sorry. I didn’t ‘change the culture,’ My bad. My bad”
That quote was highlighted in the tweeted video.
Punk saw this, and quote tweeted a response to Miz. All the posts are now deleted, but here’s a screenshot:
Well alrightee then. That escalated quickly. Kind of seems like there might be some history here, no?
As a fan of both guys, I’m not sure what to think. Other than... damn. And that Fox & UFC employee Punk might find the footing on his moral high ground isn’t as firm as he might think.
Miz hasn’t commented, and I doubt we’ll hear any of the parties speak of this again.
But “never say never” and all that. These are guys who could have a heck of a worked shoot feud if they ever wanted to. The list of potential Punk programs just keeps growing, doesn’t it?
