WWE Hall of Famer Superstar Billy Graham was somewhat offended by the CM Punk promo from RAW on Monday and called the last hour of RAW the “worst excuse for a show” he has ever seen.
Graham jumped in defense of Bruno Sammartino after Punk said that his 414 days as champion would amount to more if he wrestled like Sammartino just once a month at MSG, hence his status of best in the world.
“When that teenager looking CM Punk made that statement he was also talking about me, Ivan Koloff, Stan Hanson etc,” Graham said. He also added that he lost all the respect for Punk for what he said and for going with the script.
Just like Graham jumped in defense of Sammartino, Chris Jericho chimed in to defend Punk and his promo on RAW. On his Twitter, Jericho told Graham to shut his mouth and even went as far as calling him a mark.
Meanwhile, Paul Heyman suggested that CM Punk should defend the WWE title on Hall of Fame night at MSG against Billy Graham, then asked “flesh peddling promoter” Vince McMahon to book it.
“Hogan. Flair. Superstar. All great. @CMPunk #BestInTheWorld. That includes you, @TheRock! @WWE #Rumble,” Heyman wrote.
