WWE Legend Upset with CM Punk for His Promo on RAW

– WWE Hall of Famer Superstar Billy Graham is upset with WWE Champion CM Punk for his promo on Monday’s RAW from Tampa. Graham posted the following on his Facebook:


I watch the last hour of WWE Raw last night. It was the worst excuse for a show I have ever seen! My agent Scott is tight with legendary World Champion Bruno Sammartino. Scott has told me that WWE has been calling Brunno regularly begging him to go into the Hall of Fame. Bruno has been polite but has always said no thank you.

Tonight on RAW for the last 45 minutes of the show all they did was have CM PUNK talk, talk and more talk! The killer line came when Vince had Punk putting over his 314 straight days as world champ and then said and I quote, ” you had people like Burno Sammartino , only wrestled in Madison Square Garden only wrestled one a month.”

This was by far the biggest put down of Bruno ever. Why would WWE have Punk say that about someone they have been begging to go into the Hall of Fame for untold years? When that teenager looking CM Punk made that statement he was also talking about me, Ivan Koloff , Stan Hanson etc. Find the re run and listen closely and answer me this my Facebook friends – How can they justify putting down a real icon like this, and not get called out on it?

Any news sites can quote me on my statement below:

CM Punk, I have lost all respect for you for nor saying no to the writers of the WWE for saying Bruno Sammartino only wrestled once a month in Madison Square Garden. You talk about one of the greatest icons ever in pro wrestling like he was a JOBBER??? You should be ashamed of yourself for not having the self-dignity to say NO to the writers on that line. That line you delivered indicates that I am a big loser like Bruno as well and insults me as I wrestled in the same era as Bruno. This only confirms more that I want my name out of the WWE Hall of Fame.

How many monthly sell outs have you yourself drawn at Madison Square Garden? Not a PPV or the Raw TV show. Quit talking trash about Bruno. It’s an insult to him and all the wrestlers of his era including myself!

Superstar Billy Graham”

    Who would have though out of all the guys that didn’t take what Punk said personal was Hulk Hogan himself. Normally it is Hogan who sounds bitter. But he knows what Punk is doing he is selling himself as being a heel. I don’t see a problem what Punk said because the fact is we don’t know what would happen if Punk had face somebody like Billy in his prime. All we go by is what we see now of days. Oh Punk got a rough matches but guys back in the old days use to wrestler for more the an hour I do believe. Punk is a great heel I hope it not the Rock to take the title for Punk I feel it should be somebody more desrving. But something tells me Punk WWE title run comes to an end.

    Well done Billy, now all the dipshits from this site will cry more.

  • Scooter

    Remember that time Billy Graham wrote a poem about how much he wanted to kill Chris Jericho? I see another one of those coming.

  • John

    I don’t see anything wrong with what Punk said. It was a heel promo. I’m glad he said what he said about the business because it’s true.

  • CC

    agree with Omar.

    but lets not forget, Graham has been a bitch for years, constantly whining about shit like he has no knowledge of how the industry has always worked.

  • d_pooch

    Looks like maybe WWE is done with Bruno, assuming Punk was asked to say those lines. Then again, Punk could be taking liberties with his heel promos.

    I see what Billy Graham is saying, but I also think he is taking things too seriously. Let’s remember, this is entertainment. But I guess it’s still real to Billy Graham!

  • Prince

    Anyone see Jericho’s response to this on twitter? Absolute gold. @IAmJericho Dear Superstar Billy Graham, Shut the hell up and stop being such a mark. Your Pal, Chris Jericho.

  • Doomsday Riser

    Typical granny reaction by Billy there…smell some insecurity too.

    The ripping was just storyline…deep down he probably appreciates what Bruno did for the industry,’superstupid’ Billy Graham!!!

    Hell,Punk ripped on Hogan as an arse-kisser but Hogan took no offence as he realises that its kayfabe…and Hogan > Bruno pffft…

  • Irishrhyno

    “Dear Superstar Billy Graham, Shut the hell up and stop being such a mark. Your Pal, Chris Jericho.” Jericho is so great

  • Cboz78

    “It’s still real to him, dammit”!

  • Hodgieguy

    I notice Billy Graham didn’t say anything about the fact that Bruno only wrestled once a month because it is true..These guys did not have anywhere near the schedule that todays roster has. I don’t see the issue with what Punk said.

  • Vassiliadis

    Damn! And I though Superstar Billy Graham would know what a heel does when putting a heel promo, specially someone like CM Punk.

  • Steven Moseley

    Yeah, CM Punk is just being a great heel, I don’t a problem here.

  • Matt Trovato

    It’s the same old same old with Punk though, he should be used to it by now. Angry teenager grows up to become angry adult who wants it his way and complains like the world should revolve around him. Don’t get me wrong Punk is a great wrestler but this gimmick he has makes him such a crybaby. If they took out this “constant need of respect” thing from his gimmick he’d be more enjoyable to listen to because he’s fantastic on the mic. Plus Paul Heyman is one annoying guy to both look at and listen to.

    I found it hilarious though with Rock stading in front of him in Raw, made Punk look like a child.

  • Omar

    Looks like he forgot what a Heel does.
