CM Punk is set to make his UFC debut on Saturday night as he takes on Mickey Gall, but ahead of the event he has once again unleashed a rant towards his former employers.
Punk left WWE following the 2014 Royal Rumble and refused to return to WWE despite still being under contract with the company. He was then fired by the company on his wedding day a few months later before his wife then followed his leave by walking away from the company as well.
The former WWE World Champion has spent the last year training to become a UFC fighter and has been the subject of a recent ESPN documentary leading up to his fight, but despite the fact that he is now the property of UFC, he still holds a grudge when it comes to WWE.

WWE 'FULL OF SLOBS?'
Ahead of his showdown with Mickey Gall this weekend, Punk sat down with Ariel Helwani from MMAFighting.com for an in-depth interview. Once again Punk decided to call out the WWE locker room and his former friends.
"There’s a lot of slobs. I’d see guys take their wrist tape off and just throw it on the ground, you know what I mean, right next to a garbage can, stuff like that. So if you had a guy like Bob [Holly] in the locker room… you’re not trying to do that [expletive]."
Punk brought Bob Holly into the discussion because he was talking about enforcers in WWE and the fact that these guys played a big role in WWE back in the day but now it seems that there is no place for them.
WWE NEEDS AN ENFORCER?
Punk spent a lot of the interview that was made as a way to build up his UFC debut talking about the WWE locker room and the fact that he feels that it is missing an enforcer.
"There’s nobody in that locker room that’s, in a good way, an enforcer. Nobody’s gonna pick up the locker room. You know what I mean? Nobody’s gonna clean up after themselves. They just destroy…It was happening when I was there. I was the guy that was picking stuff up. And that’s because, you know, Eddie Guerrero always told me ‘hey, pick up the locker room.’ You know? ‘Can you pick up the locker room before you go?’ And I’d be like ‘Yes sir’"
It seems Punk still harbours many opinions about WWE from his time with the company and despite the fact that he left almost three years ago and is currently embroiled in a $1 million lawsuit, he still manages to share these opinions at the most opportune time, ahead of the biggest fight of his career.
