During a recent interview with the New York Daily News to hype the new WWE ’12 video game, CM Punk made some controversial comments about The Rock – and his Hollywood megastar ego.
“You know, the thing about that is, he’s not around. It doesn’t help morale when the guy goes right from his limo to the dressing room to the dressing room to the ring. He’s very bourgeois Hollywood.”
Punk thinks The Rock is back to help his own career and make sure WrestleMania is a success – without allowing any of WWE’s younger stars to benefit from his return.
“He came back, he did WWE Raw after that. He said he was never gonna leave. And the next time we saw him is a month later. Yeah, it does bother me. A little hello would have been nice. He could have run by with his own entourage.”
According to Punk, The Rock has made little effort to interact with the rest of WWE – and it’s caused a lot of resentment in the WWE locker room.
When asked if Rock was a diva, Punk said that would be an insult to WWE’s Divas.
“I can’t say that. At least the WWE Divas say hi to me in the halls.”
