I was listening to ESPN this morning and heard Cowherds rant on Punk live. It was so poor that I actually tried calling into the show to call him a fucking idiot who doesnt know what hes talking about. Off the top of my head some of the idiotic things he said were...This morning on ESPN Radio, Colin Cowherd, host of ESPN's "The Herd," mentioned CM Punk and his stance on Nike's recent signing of UFC star Jon Jones.
CM Punk opposes the signing of Jones because he feels his past with alcohol makes him a bad role model for kids. Cowherd ripped Punk and called him a moralist who shouldn't have an opinion on alcoholism, citing several wrestlers charged with DUI as well as several drug related deaths in the industry in recent years.
-Pro Wrestlers have no say in moral issues because they all die at 25 from rampant drug and steroid use
-Wrestling appeals to a bunch of 16 year old booger pickers (whatever that means)
-He did have one interesting point which is what we were just talking about yesterday being Punk shouldnt impose his lifestyle onto others. (I agree with that)
-The WWE once had a guy die in the ring (presumably Owen Hart) and they rolled him out of the ring and kept on wrestling
I mean the stupidity he was spewing out just spoke of his ignorance to the wrestling scene these days. CM Punk is his own man, Why is he being lumped in with all the steroid useing wrestlers of the past? Should I have called in and said all Baseball players are morons because they use steroids? Or all football players are stupid because they have a head injury epidemic? Those are false statements. ALL wrestlers dont take steroids and if hes ever seen Punk, He certaintly doesnt. But he has no say because hes a pro wrestler..What a joke
The thing that annoyed me the most though was his mindset that all wrestler are morons and they have no say on anything.
