CM Punk Makes ‘Disturbing’ Jeff Hardy Claim

Former WWE Champion CM Punk has done it all – from WWE Champion, to UFC star to actor. During a recent interview on The Movie Crypt podcast, the ‘Second City Saint’ discussed how a moment during his World Championship title win against Jeff Hardy at Summerslam 2009 was truly a disturbing and scary one. Revealing, how during that moment in time, perhaps he shouldn’t of been laying on his back, on a table as Hardy scaled a giant ladder. Credit to Fightful for the below quote. CM Punk was ‘removed’ from this major WWE show.



“I remember wrestling Jeff Hardy in the Staples Center and he was jumping off a very tall ladder onto me. I just had to lay on the table for an extended period of time, which really makes you think about it. It’s one of those things where, I’m just looking and thinking, ‘he’s really high up there.’ You just stew in that moment and I was thinking, ‘I should just get up and walk away. Why am I laying here? This is stupid.’ He finally jumped on me and I was like, ‘Yeah, that hurt.’ You want to protect Jeff more than you want to protect yourself because he’s the one that’s jumping, but you realize that’s a 200-pound man hurdling at you from a great height and it’s not going to end well for either of you,”
