Former WWE Star Really Wants To Knock Out CM Punk
Kid Kash wasn’t in WWE long, but he was the second man in history to ever win both the TNA X-Division Championship and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. And yet, in a recent interview, Kash didn’t feel like discussing his own accomplishments. Rather, he opened up about what he’d like to do to former colleague CM Punk.
In an interview with MMA Fighting, Kash talked about the beef he’s had with Punk dating back fifteen years. In particular, he ties this into a criticism of Punk’s UFC debut, noting how much he would have loved to knock him out.
“Damn, he’s the same weight that I am. How bad would I love to knock his ass out? I’ve never liked him. I’ve known the guy for at least 15 years, probably, and he’s been such an arrogant asshole. He was handed so much s***. He never earned a f***ing thing. I’m kind of amazed that he had the camp that he had for two years and went down that quick and with no defense whatsoever. I would be there with bells on it. I would love to fight that f***er, I really would. … He would be in for a very rude awakening. That f***er couldn’t beat my meat; he couldn’t.”
Kash would go on to criticize Punk for leaving WWE in the first place.
“How arrogant is that. You just simply quit an amazing job. It’s an amazing job. You make a lot of money. Your merchandise sales are incredible. You travel the world. On top of that, you’re one of the main headliners and you’re crying about it. I’m sorry, buddy. That’s just an ego shooting out, one for the ages.”
This really doesn’t seem like a feud chalked up to any one incident so much as it’s simply a case of the two men never getting along. Attitudes clash in wrestling, and both Kash and Punk are notoriously outspoken. With that said, I don’t think this is a feud we’re ever going to see settled. If anything, it seems like a one-way rivalry, in the sense that Punk doesn’t seem to care or think about Kash at all. Maybe the negative feelings are mutual for Punk, but mentally, he’s seemed so far removed from pro wrestling these past two years that I wonder just how much he even thinks about any of those old beefs.
But what do you think? Does Kid Kash have a point about CM Punk? Or does it come across as sour grapes? Sound off in the comments!
