The wrestling world just experienced a great weekend of professional wrestling and fans had a bounty of events to enjoy.
Let’s tuck into the latest news that has followed:
Triple H once said CM Punk’s ass was ‘too big and too soft’
On the latest episode of Jim Ross’s podcast Grilling JR – which was based around CM Punk – JR recalled a weird criticism from Triple H: “I remember someone saying, ‘Well, his ass is too big. His ass is too big, and it’s too soft.’ Wait a minute, where are we here? What are we doing? The crowd is telling you, this guy’s over. Our job is to put an ass every 18 inches in the stands! … [It was] Hunter. It was all about the workout s**t, man. Or how he looked in an 8×10 or whatever. He’s not gonna look the same because he’s not the same, and if all you’re gonna do is put out androids that all look alike, then what the hell do ya got? You’ve got no uniqueness. You’ve got no individuality. So that was the whole deal.
“I think that the consensus was, ‘This guy may not be in great shape because he looks soft.’ And I’m saying that his softness as far as his ass is concerned — his ass issue, which is a non-issue, in my view — is basically based on the fact that the perception was, he had an oversized, soft ass, silly as it sounds. It’s so absurd, it doesn’t make any sense. And I swear to God, folks, I’m not making this up. But that was the whole deal. And finally, through hell and high water, he plowed through this bulls**t and became the star that he is.”
