Heath Slater: “I think @CMPunk is in the right. If the @WWEUniverse doesn’t respect him. Make Them!”
Tyson Kidd: “Not so sure I agree with @CMPunk . Respect is earned not commanded. Great talent but attitude or mindset is out of sync. For the record I’ve both teamed with and wrestled against @CMPunk and have a great deal of respect for him. Some actions are questionable”
Curt Hawkins: “Been a fan of @CMPunk since I was in high school. I’ve never been a fan Jerry Lawler. I thought the kick was justified.”
Antonio Cesaro: “Not surprised by @CMPunk’s uncivilized actions tonight. After all he’s American. Good thing you have me as your #USChampion now. #respect”
Michael McGillicutty: “Look, @CMPunk is the WWE World Champion. Show him respect. Lawler doesnt know when to keep his mouth shut. Now u know old man!”
Titus O’Neil: “YES,YES&YES Again!! @CMPunk You did the Right thing on @WWE #RAW if they don’t want 2give U #Respect then TAKE IT!#PrimeTimePlayers Approved”
