    Default Jeff Hardy and Paul Roma discuss current WWE Champion CM Punk

    Jeff Hardy:

    Working with CM Punk: "It was great working with CM Punk, we have different beliefs in terms of our outlook on life but he is so talented it’s crazy, we had many great matches together and it was a pleasure to work with him."
    Quote:
    One taboo subject that James Guttman has addressed in his own audios has been CM Punk. While Punk is an amazing wrestler, JG has pointed out that to a casual fan, he's a smaller guy that kind of looks like he smells like cigarettes. Guttman asks Paul Roma his opinion on Punk's look and Roma agrees.

    "He looks like somebody who was dragged out of the tattoo parlor - kicks his feet up and is just chain-smoking cigarettes. Not somebody that you want your son to look like."
    But then, Paul brings up an interesting point and references a past ClubWWI.com guest as the formula for Punk's success - even with average fans.

    "But, at the end of the day, you have to look at him and look at Honky Tonk Man. Honky Tonk was a guy who had no body, but had a great gimmick and people wanted to see him get beat. So when he went out there and beat all these ex-champions and champions-to-be like Tito Santana, people were saying, "How can that be? How can he beating Tito? How can he be beating this guy? How can he be beating that guy?" And that's what had you coming back. Again, it's like Mike Tyson. You don't have to like him, but you're going to watch to see him get beat. If you do like him, you're gonna watch to see him not get beat. And that's the same thing with CM Punk. You said it. He doesn't have a physique. He' s just that less-than-average guy as far as physically looking at him and he goes out there and wins, wins, wins. And it drives the average joe out in the audience, that looks like him, to say, "Oh, I can do that, man. CM Punk is doing it and he looks like shit. I can do it. " The other people out there, who are jacked and in better shape physically, are saying, "When's this guy gonna get beat?" That's the philosophy that Vince is using with this dude."

    It's quite a different outlook from Jeff Hardy than this interview

    In the interview Jeff was most likely clean.

    In that video he clearly was not.



    Kind of changes what you're willing/able/knowing to say.

    I think the Jeff Hardy then and the Jeff Hardy now are two very different people. He's obviously smartened up from his drug issues and is giving a proper opinion on Punk now rather than a intoxicated rant about how Punk chooses to live his life.

    Who is Paul Roma?

    Also, Punk doesn't look 'less-than-average'. He's slim by professional wrestling but he looks a lot better than the average joe. He doesn't look chubby and out of shape like Honky Tonk man. He's pretty well-defined, but I think his tattoos obscure his muscle definition a lot.

    I like when people say Punk isn't in shape because he isn't built like Cena.

    CM Punk is not below average!!

    I think we all agree CM Punk is pretty much the hottest male alive in that pic all this Paul Roma talk is nonsense.

    (Power and Glory were pretty good though....)

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    If Punk is less than average, then I want to be less than average.

    I can honestly say, I loved Punk's look when he lead the Nexus. I hated his Zod look.

    Yeah, I get the whole "Why isn't Punk considered fit?" thing.

    In competitions I'm typically one of the lesser ripped looking guys cause I still have plenty of softness for my athleticism, but put me out there and I'll perform better than most do. Sometimes it's not just about how you look.

    And Punk is in pretty damn good shape regardless.

    Punk looks like shit compared to other workers. Nash described him best, he looks like the cook at your local Waffle House. Thats not too big of a knock on him, because he is talented (even though smarks have ruined him for me) but he doesn't possess any of the cosmetic presence that you would expect from someone whose suppose to represent the best of those deemed "Superstars"

    Sometimes being so different is what sets you apart as a top guy.

    I think it depends pretty heavily on how into wrestling you are in terms of how you judge Punk's physique. To me, and it appears that to a lot of us on PW - he don't even notice it. We know Punk, we know his ability, how cool he is and how great on the mic he is. However, two of my friends (who've not seen wrestling in at least five years) saw the Punk / Rock interaction a couple of weeks ago, and they both pointed out how small Punk looked next to Rock. I saw it as a great back-and-forth promo. They saw it as The Rock dwarfing some lightweight.

    I agree ... in this instance, I'd say it is, though.

    Great, opinions from someone who probably can't even remember his feud with Punk and a never was. Then we throw in the opinion of Kevin "Can't walk across the ring without getting hurt" Nash, who btw is still terrified of old and out of shape Manny Fernandez.

    Glad to see that Jeff is thinking more clearly now that he is clean. Punk is certainly better than average in terms of everyday society. Obviously in comparison to other pro wrestlers though he isn't in better shape, but he probably is light years ahead of them in terms of mic work and in-ring ability so it probably doesn't even really matter that his look isn't top notch.

    Punk looks small compared to The Rock because Punk isn't roided out of his mind.

    Both Hardy's looked like they were high in that video. Matt needs to accept that Amy is gone. How pathetic is this guy?

    Is the Rock using roids? I wondered this when he came back originally, the guy was HUGE, his muscle definition was incredible, even compared to Cena.

    Romeo Roma is wrong imo because CM Punk became WWE Champion because of his rising popularity after the first pipe bomb and then regained it as a babyface. I don't remember Honky Tonk Man ever winning the IC title as a babyface. In fact people hated the guy so much that he was forced to turn heel. CM Punk turned heel to face The Rock. Completely different scenarios. Punk was a babyface WWE Champion in this same very reign.

    As for his look all I got to say the first announced inductee into this year's HOF says hi lol. He had more main events and world titles than Romeo ever sniffed at.

    I think Jeff isn't jealous anymore at this point and is happy he's making boat load of cash from TNA and probably just doesn't care to be bitter anymore about anything.
