In a recent episode of his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Brian “Road Dogg” James noted he didn’t understand CM Punk.
Although he acknowledged Punk’s in-ring skills and promos, Dogg didn’t get his character and gimmick.
“I know who he is. I honestly don’t get it. I don’t get it. If the guy can work great, and I’ve seen him work, and he’s pretty great…I don’t know what I don’t understand. If the answer is, ‘Because you’re old, and so you don’t understand,’ I get that. But I also think that’s a cop-out answer because you don’t understand either. You just like it, and I just don’t. Let’s not get down to brass tacks because we’ll both be right and we’ll both be wrong. If you do like him, then all that stupid crap he does makes perfect sense to you, and you love it. If you don’t, you can’t get past it. I know I’m in the minority here, and I got no problem doing that, but I’m allowed to have my own sense about things and opinions.”
Dogg continued, “Everybody loved CM Punk too. I never got it. Never understood it. Cuts a decent promo. Good, in today’s world. Never got the rest of it. Let’s lay it on. If we’re getting heat, let’s get it.”

In a recent episode of his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Brian “Road Dogg” James expressed his confusion about CM Punk. While he acknowledged Punk’s in-ring skills and promos, Dogg admitted that he didn’t understand his character and gimmick.
Dogg’s comments reflect a difference in opinion and taste within the wrestling community. He acknowledged that some fans might attribute his lack of understanding to his age, but he believes that it’s not just a generational gap. He stated, “If you do like him, then all that stupid crap he does makes perfect sense to you, and you love it. If you don’t, you can’t get past it.”
The confusion surrounding CM Punk is not uncommon. Throughout his career, Punk has been known for his unique persona and controversial actions. His ability to connect with the audience through his promos and his rebellious attitude has garnered him a dedicated fan base. However, there are also those who don’t resonate with his character and find it difficult to appreciate his work.
Dogg also mentioned that he never understood the widespread adoration for CM Punk. While he acknowledged Punk’s promo skills, he admitted that he didn’t grasp the rest of it. This difference in opinion highlights the subjective nature of wrestling fandom. What appeals to one person may not resonate with another.
It’s important to remember that wrestling, like any form of entertainment, is subjective. Different wrestlers have different styles, characters, and gimmicks that appeal to different audiences. While some fans may passionately support CM Punk and appreciate his contributions to the industry, others may not connect with his persona.
Ultimately, wrestling is about personal preferences and individual interpretations. It’s perfectly acceptable for fans and even industry veterans like Road Dogg to have differing opinions on wrestlers and their characters. These differences contribute to the diversity and richness of the wrestling community.
