CM Punk Takes Shot At Shane McMahon
Who really is “The Best In The World”? CM Punk laid claim to the nickname during his time in WWE. Now, Shane McMahon uses it to draw heat. Sunday night during Extreme Rules, Punk seemingly took a shot at Shane on Twitter (h/t CagesideSeats).
Pictured is CM Punk responding to former UFC Public Relations head Dave Sholler, mocking Shane McMahon. Punk doesn’t comment on wrestling often anymore, making this even more fun.
