The straight edge wrestler is not a fan of the WWE megastar; not holding back in his opinion of the two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee.
Appearing on Brandon Walker on Rasslin, Punk would answer a question of his own popularity by bringing up stars of the past.
When asked if CM Punk is the biggest star currently in wrestling, he would make comparisons to Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hogan, saying how a lot of perspectives and opinions are just subjective.
"It's like the kids say, there is levels to this, and you don't know until you ascend to those levels. One of the things I've always hated about the wrestling business is it seems that people -- there are exceptions to the rule, some people are good about it -- there have always been people who have gotten to a certain level and they are almost taught, and the culture is fostered for them to believe that they need to make sure nobody else gets to that level. They don't want anyone to 'steal their spot.' Throwing my name in the hat with someone like Steve Austin, who arguably is the biggest star the business has ever seen. A lot of this is subjective.
Punk would then make his opinions on Hogan very clear:
"You can make the argument that Hulk Hogan is a bigger star than Steve Austin. Then you look at business periods and eras and box office receipts and all that other stuff. I think Hogan is a piece of sh*t, so obviously I'm like 'Steve Austin, yeah.' What it feels like, I don't have the words to describe. I know what I feel like is, I want to help everyone on the AEW roster f*cking get there."
