CM Punk Reveals What Vince McMahon Told Him Before The Pipebomb Promo
A lot of fans were absolutely disgusted by the PG product of WWE back then. Everyone was getting tired with John Cena destroying every single person on the roster. They finally got a ray of hope with the rise of Punk. It felt like finally there is someone who can give a solid competition to John Cena.
He was actually a huge competition for John Cena back in the time. He was getting even more famous than Cena. And the pipebomb actually made him more famous. It was the promo that made him a serious contender of Cena.
It was not very common in WWE to break the fourth wall. This is the reason why the promo became so famous among the fans and the critics loved it as well.
CM Punk who currently works in the All Elite Wrestling recently spoke to Dropping Character podcast where he talked about his famous pipebomb promo and she said that Vince McMahon told him not to mention the director Kevin Dunn during his promo. He said;
“When I showed up that day, he [Vince McMahon] found me and he said, ‘You’re gonna go out there and air your grievances tonight’ and I was [laughing]. ‘Sure I am. Sure I am, guy’, and he’s like, ‘Write some stuff down and let me approve it’ and I’m not gonna name names but I got with some people who were writers and I started talking about things that I wanted to say and they said, ‘Oh he’s not approving any of this.
“He’s not gonna want you to mention Brock’ because Brock Lesnar was gone and they had a tumultuous relationship with lawsuits and stuff that I would soon experience myself. You know, so, in my mind, what I did was I immediately just shut down and I went with the flow and I let them write stuff down and hand to Vince and Vince went, ‘Okay, this looks good.’
“He gave a couple of notes, some of which I used. One was don’t mention Kevin Dunn who is the guy in the production truck, don’t mention somebody else. ‘Okay’, and then I went out and said whatever the f*ck I wanted.”
