CM Punk suffered his second MMA loss at the UFC 225 event. This fight failed to impress the MMA fans all the way. There was already a backlash around his performance from 2014.
Mickey Gall knocked him out within just two minutes and 16 seconds four years ago. Now, this loss might have ended his MMA career.
There are some of the CM Punk fans who would be upset with this outcome. There is another section of pro-wrestling fans who are glad of this outcome. It was Punk’s destiny in the world of Mixed Martial Arts industry. His attitude has always been a big problem ever since leaving the WWE.
It is the main reason why Corey Graves took shots at CM Punk following the loss. The commentator from WWE took his Twitter-handle to let know his feelings about his former colleague. He seemed more than happy about the loss. The rant continued in a series of such tweeted which seemed quite a personal issue.
Fightful.com reached Graves to know the real reason why he went for such a rant. Graves revealed an incident from 2014 where he wanted to have dinner with CM Punk. The former WWE Champion had already left the company. He denied dining with Graves just because of his association with the WWE.
The Straight Edge leader also did not want to keep any relationship with any of the WWE superstars. Graves could not accept the fact that Punk showed this much audacity to the company.
This is the same brand that took him to the fame. Now he did not want to keep any mention of them in his life.
Check out the interesting words of the ‘saviour of misbehaviour’ (courtesy stillrealtous.com),
“What really set me off was this week when he essentially disowned the business that made him,” Graves said. “My only issue with him was that he turned off people that actually loved and supported him. Beyond “the business” and he never wanted anything to do with us…yet continued to present himself as this “Punk” hero.”
Graves also clarified this rant had nothing to do with the ongoing lawsuit. CM Punk has just won a case filed against him by WWE doctor Chris Amann. He was not talking from a corporate perspective at all or a representative who is taking his frustrations off. But there might be some truths to it.
Here are the further quotes from the commentator,
“I’m simply hurt/pissed off that a guy that I looked like as a big brother-type has turned his back on me and everyone that loved and supported him only because of the name on my paycheck. I’m definitely not the only one. I won’t name names, but there is a large group of us to this day that inexplicably lost a solid friend because of where we work.”
