Despite CM Punk leaving WWE and not being associated with the company anymore, he's still getting interactions from the wrestling universe on Twitter, and earlier this week, he even got interaction with a current superstar - Ryback.

It's well documented that the two do not see eye to eye. They had on-screen rivalries during CM Punk's historic title reign, and they also had off-screen rivalries because of it.

The two simply hated each other but it was all a secret up until CM Punk officially left the WWE in order to join UFC.

After leaving the company, the former wrestler agreed to do a radio podcast with his good friend Colt Cabana back in 2014.

CM Punk was very open about his time in WWE and how it all fell apart due to bad writing and not getting that WrestleMania main event.

However there was a certain segment that caught everyone's attention and it was when Punk opened up about working with other wrestlers, and he made it clear that one wrestler he hated working with was Ryback.

He started it by admitting he didn't want to talk about The Big Guy simply because 'he took 20-years off his career'.

Punk admitted that at the time he was already feeling 'beat-up' and 'hurt', but once John Cena got injured, WWE had to find him a new feud, and that new feud came with Ryback.

They had several matches throughout the rivalry but one incident remains in CM Punk's mind and aggravates him to this day.

There was one spot when Ryback had to put Punk through a table, however 'steroid guy' as Punk calls him, messed up the spot and severely injured the champion at the time.

Punk admitted he was going to be Gorilla Pressed through a table, but Ryback missed it and dumped him on the concrete floor, tilting his pelvis in the process.

After the incident, Punk spoke to Ryback backstage and asked if he did it on purpose or if he was just 'dumb as f**k'.

Ryback responded with 'I'm dumb as f**k, I'm sorry.'

Fast forward a couple of years and now Punk has had to postpone his UFC debut due to surgery on a herniated disc.

Ryback saw the news and send Punk the following tweet: '@CMPunk My bad it was an accident "I'm dumb as f&€#"'

Probably not the wisest tweet sent by Ryback given his current role within WWE.
