WWE: Chris Jericho says CM Punk unfairly accused Ryback

Chris Jericho spoke with Digital Spy this week and what he had to say was extremely interesting. As many will know by know, Jericho was a good friend and colleague of departed superstar CM Punk who made a shed load of headlines in 2014. Jericho has predominantly not said anything too critical of Punk since his departure, but things changed this week.

CM Punk left WWE in acrimonious circumstances last January the day after Royal Rumble after a severe disagreement with Vince McMahon and co over a number of issues in the wrestling company.

Punk didn't just leave the company, he left his friends - including Chris Jericho - completely in the dark. But then all of a sudden at the back end of 2014 he came out with an explosive podcast in which he ripped into the WWE, and superstar wrestler Ryback in particular, for damaging him during a match.

Punk was out of order 

Despite being Punk's friend, Jericho criticized CM Punk's comments this week in his interview with Digital Spy. Jericho believes firmly that Punk's remarks about Ryback were out of line, and his dislike of the way Punk hung Ryback out to dry compelled Jericho to invite Ryback to be guest on his podcast, Talk is Jericho, recently.

Jericho explains that he invited Ryback onto the show so he could help the much-maligned wrestler put the record straight on CM Punk's comments - which included the accusation that Ryback once deliberately broke the ribs of Punk during a match. Safe to say, Jericho doesn't believe what Punk had to say at the back end of last year.

"Loved it [the interview]. That's why I wanted to have Ryback on, I wanted people to see his personality, to hear his passion," Jericho told Digital Spy. "He was unfairly accused [by CM Punk], in my opinion, of certain things, but I worked with Ryback for months and loved it.

"I know he's not dumb and I know he's not an idiot, and I just wanted to give him a chance to tell his side of the story and show his personality and let people know what he's all about."

Looks like CM Punk has lost another friend.
