During the latest edition of his “The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, AEW wrestler Matt Hardy commented on some backstage tension over CM Punk in WWE when the two men were working there at the time. He said,

“Some people in the office were very split on [Punk]. Paul Heyman was a big advocate for CM Punk, obviously, around that time. But I do know that there were forces in the office that weren’t high on Punk and they didn’t really want him to come up to the main roster. … He overcame a lot of odds. … I do remember there [was] some guy who just had issues with him because he was very outspoken about things, you know, and was very outspoken about the whole straight edge thing.”
