'Road Dogg' Brian James has briefly commented on CM Punk's recent AEW controversies and didn't shy away from taking a big jab at the former WWE Superstar.
WWE employed Road Dogg when CM Punk left the company in 2014. The former world champion was allegedly unhappy with how he was treated by the company and voiced his displeasure backstage during a meeting with Vince McMahon and Triple H before quitting.
On an episode of Oh...You Didn't Know podcast, Road Dogg didn't miss the chance to throw shade at Punk amidst the developing backstage situation in AEW:
"So, fast forward to 2022, and apparently, he's still going into somebody else's office talking about going home! Look, I don't know if it's a pattern with you or not, but it sure seems like it's forming one to me," noted Road Dogg. "And so, look, let's continue. I just wanted to throw a jab. I just wanted to throw a jab at Punk." [3:30 - 4:00]
