– WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross says he enjoyed CM Punk’s segment with Jerry Lawler on last night’s RAW. Ross wrote:
“@CMPunk is brutally blunt, whether one agrees w/ him or not. Best in World’s verbal jousting w/ @JerryLawler is good stuff. #SauceIt”
– At the same time, WWE announcer Matt Striker says he does not endorse anyone dissing Lawler. Striker wrote:
“If @CMPunk doesnt like Jerry Lawler or Michael Cole’s commentary I can think of someone’s style he may appreciate…. Let me be clear: I do not endorse anyone ripping on Jerry Lawler. He has paved the way so a guy like me can be in this business.”
– On a related note, the back and forth between Punk and Lawler on commentary during the Big Show vs. John Cena main event last night had a lot of people talking backstage.
