Mexican wrestler Vampiro appeared on this week’s MLW Podcast with hosts Konnan and Court Bauer, which can be heard at MLW.com. On this week’s show, Vampiro spoke about WWE Champion CM Punk’s straight edge lifestyle and his past experiences with Punk, including “joking around” with Punk by handing him pills and spiking his drinks ..
“There was kind of a weird vibe there. Kind of a ‘Hey, hey how’s it going?’ type of thing. That whole Straight Edge thing, I get it. I used to joke about it with him. I’d give him handfuls of pills and put things in his soft drinks to [mess] with him, but in a good way, trying to break the ice.”
“Him right away being a Straight Edge guy, if you’re into punk rock music you know why and where it came from, although it was kind of new then. Unfortunately, that whole Straight Edge scene kind of came and went really quick and it turned into what we know as ‘emo.’ Emo is short for ‘emotional core,’ which basically came from a Straight Edge concert when a dude started to cry at a punk concert.”
