CM Punk takes yet another shot at the WWE

Ever since CM Punk left the WWE at the start of 2014, the Straight Edge Saviour hasn't held back in giving his opinions about the company. 

Punk has spoken about the stranglehold that Vince McMahon has over the creative team and decisions they make, some superstars - cough, Ryback, cough - being terrible wrestlers that constantly hurt their opponents, and the WWE medical staff, who were completely fine with Punk wrestling with a staph infection. 

Well, Punk is now at it again, with the now UFC fighter hitting out at the WWE's writers and creative team.

Speaking in a recent interview on UFC Unfiltered, the former World Heavyweight Champion revealed his displeasure with the state of the creative team, saying they are killing wrestler's promos by over-scripting them.

"I think the good ones, the interviews and the promos people remember, those are improv," Punk started off as saying.

"Now, [professional] wrestling's just overscripted to death. It's almost like they have a chokehold on it."

The Big Dilemma

According to Punk, scripting a wrestler's promo is fine when they are not comfortable on the mic - something he never struggled with - but it is when they start doing it for the guys who can absolutely kill it on the stick, that's when it becomes a problem.

"Some guys need to operate that way and I feel like some people need to let loose and be themselves. You've got a whole room of guys writing for you. They don't know you. They don't know where you're coming from. They don't know your perspective or your character and stuff like that.," he said.

"I always felt that the crowd could tell and then they're going to pay attention to their phones or s--t on whatever segment you're in. So yeah, I was always a fan of just kind of doing my own thing." 

The Natural

Punk is telling the truth. Think about what it took for him to finally become a big star in the company. It was the pipe bomb, where he let all of his frustrations with the WWE out on live television, just telling it like it is.

That run, where he was basically allowed to say whatever the hell he wanted during his promos against the likes of Vince McMahon, Triple H, John Cena and more was absolutely excellent and it made him the WWE's biggest star.

Hopefully, with Punk now gone, someone else can pick up from where he left and run with it, becoming the new Voice of the Voiceless.
