Former NFL Star Takes Shots At CM Punk, Says The Two Have “Personal History”

Former NFL star Shawne Merriman had some interesting comments to make about CM Punk during a recent appearance on FOX Sports Live.

Merriman, who tried out for the WWE last year, was asked for his thoughts about Punk jumping-ship to the UFC and revealed that the two have some personal issues.

“We have a little beef,” said Merriman on the FOX Sports 1 program. “We have a little history.”

Merriman continued, “I was talking to a friend, Eve [Torres-Gracie], who I met, who is a commentator-broadcaster for WWE. I said, ‘Hey, how you guys doin?’ I saw her at the hotel. ‘What you guys out here for?’ We had a good conversation and she walked off. Next thing I know this guy goes out and puts on Twitter that I got ‘dissed’ by one of the WWE women and I’m sitting there like, ‘What are you talking about?'”

From there, Merriman let the insults fly.

“And this is coming from a guy who was wearing a small speedo/thong next to the pool, so he’s obviously not that tough. For him to talk the way he did and then go into the UFC — I think it’s a complete joke.”

Merriman concluded, “It’s personal. It’s a little bit more than personal, and I would love to have my shot at him one day.”
