Originally published at Seth Rollins on CM Punk: “Stay away, you cancer. Get away from me forever.”
Seth Rollins pulled no punches in a brutal assessment of CM Punk when asked about possible future free agents.
Speaking during an interview with Nick Hausman of Wrestling Inc, Rollins, albeit in character, said:
Oh, Philly Phil. Oh, stay away. Stay away, you cancer. Get away from me forever.
I don’t like Phil. He’s a jerk. Oh, did we just figure that out? Did we just figure that out?
Everybody in the room is like, “Oh no, dude, did he say that?” Yeah, he’s a jerk. Come on, they figured it out over there. We knew it over here. I don’t want him back. Go do something else, bye bye, bye bye, see you later.
Wow! I’m not surprised he thinks it, but I’m surprised he said it. At the same time, it is wrestling and anything a wrestler says you have to take with a grain of salt.
Big blow to CM Punk Spokesman Nick Hausman lol.
I am not a fan of CM Punk, but calling someone cancer. I dunno, that is too much for me and says more about Seth than Punk…
I would guess that the majority of wrestlers in WWE and AEW would use the exact same language. “Locker Room Cancer” is a pretty commonly used term in sports, I dont see it as extreme take. If anything I think it speaks to how disliked Punk is by his peers.
CM Punk is a jerk - look how he treats his best friend lol.
He’s whiny, annoying, egotistical etc. this is the same human being that thought he could walk into the UFC without any training, and somehow win and did worse than I think I would’ve done. He thought he should hijak a press conference and humiliate people right to his boss to send a message.
All while eating muffins like a psycho.
I mean, why would Seth want him in the company other than to draw money, which the company already has enough?
I mean in all seriousness, is this the kind of guy you want to work with?
I did find it kind of odd that Cole brought up the comments. Didn’t say what he said directly, but something to the effect of “Rollins caused quite the stir on social media today”. Anytime something like that is mentioned on WWE TV I’m always suspicious its an angle. Dont get me wrong, my gut tells me its not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is.
It’s a common phrase, though I absolutely agree that it SHOULDN’T be. But I’m not reading anything into that.
By the way, I think the last few years have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that having a character who can be an asshole in “real“ media is definitely the way to go. You can say whatever you want as long as it’s something your character would say.
