Triple H Reportedly Livid Over CM Punk’s Podcast Interview

November 28, 2014 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

While a previous report stated that there has been a mixed reaction to CM Punk’s interview with Colt Cabana on the Art of Wrestling podcast, according to the latest version of Wrestling Observer Radio just about everyone in the company who listened to it–which is pretty much everyone from management and main roster to NXT–thought it was great. The report claims that while Punk had a lot of enemies backstage–particularly at the end–even his detractors are reportedly pleased that some of the details he provided have finally surfaced. It was noted that many people backstage are afraid to discuss their issues with management and while they don’t like him or want him back, they are glad that these details have been revealed to the public.

To no one’s surprise, the McMahons are not pleased about it. According to the report, Vince McMahon is “upset but not fuming” and is simply upset that the whole thing happened. Triple H, on the other hand, is furious. Brian Alvarez noted, “‘Triple H wants to kill Punk’ was the exact text message…Hunter and Stephanie have such an abject hatred for CM Punk.”

It was noted that Ryback isn’t happy, which is the least surprising news to come out of this considering his Twitter reaction over the weekend where he called Punk “fragile and insecure.”

WWE management is also very displeased with Cabana and he is obviously not likely to ever receive a call back from the company. It was also noted that if Steve Austin asks Vince McMahon about the interview during the live edition of his podcast on Monday, that McMahon will not discuss it in depth; he’ll give a very corporate-style response and quickly move on.

In addition, it was noted that Punk will do a “Part Two” podcast in the near future where Punk answers questions from fans.
