Paul Heyman Talks WWE Not Wanting CM Punk From The Start, Punk Having To Swim Upstream In WWE.

Paul Heyman recently appeared on The KiddChris Show and shared his recollections of CM Punk's earliest work in WWE. The show's host led into the discussion by asserting that WWE never wanted anything to do with Punk and Heyman agreed.

"They never wanted CM Punk to begin with," Heyman said. "When I was in Louisville, doing WWE Developmental, they sent CM Punk down to me so I could fire him. Every week I would send memos to guys who were in charge of the Raw and SmackDown rosters saying: ‘You have a main eventer down here; someone scoop him up’ and no one would take him for a year—to the point when we launched ECW in WWE, I brought him with me because no one else on Raw and SmackDown even wanted him."

Heyman explained that Punk’s biggest successes were against WWE’s will and contrary to their judgment and praised Punk for his accomplishments despite these issues.

The Laser Tag Grudge Match: Nerdist vs. RocketJump and Gearbox.

By now, you’re probably aware that at Comic-Con, we, along with 2K and Gearbox, took over the top floor of San Diego’s Petco Park and transformed it into the rootinest tootinest team-based shootinest Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel laser tag arena this side of the Mississippi. You know what? It was the best on the other side of the Mississippi, too. You’ve seen CM Punk’s final form as the cyborg assassin, The Laser Tag-inator. You’ve even seen RocketJump’s portrayal of one man’s descent into madness vis-a-vis the crucible of laser tag. But, now you can witness the action of the biggest, baddest event that went down at Petco Park all weekend: the Grudge Match between Team Nerdist, and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants known as Team RocketJump and Gearbox.

Watch in awes as Chris Hardwick displays an athleticism heretofore unseen by the likes of nerds! Marvel as Freddie Wong displays a rate of fire that would surely get him accused of wall hacking! Tremble in fear as CM Punk…sits…in the audience. And keep a careful eye on that magician of mayhem, Randy Pitchford. Seriously, he’s a magician and therefore probably can’t be trusted. There are only two things that we know for certain in this life: Nerdist Laser Tag was the best damn part of Comic-Con 2014, and Team Nerdist definitely totally absolutely won. But don’t take our word for it — watch for yourselves and see the laser-based awesomeness.

CM Punk Dines on Grubs With The Bug Chef and THE BOXTROLLS at SDCC.

Maybe it’s the carnival atmosphere San Diego Comic-Con has taken on in recent years, but if you cover something in chocolate or deep fry it and put it on a stick, the people will come. The people will come, they will be hungry, and they will eat what you offer. That’s what CM Punk discovered when chatting it up with David George Gordon, aka The Bug Chef at The Boxtrolls Truck outside the convention.

If every movie out of Laika House in the last few years has included something that made you go “ewwwww”, The Boxtrolls will be no exception. The adorably misunderstood sub-street-dwelling trolls feast on bugs as their main source of nutrients, and when Gordon heard this, he saw an opportunity to bring what some parts of the world consider a delicacy to the masses. Those delicacies include teriyaki-marinated grasshoppers, waxworms in quesadilla  form, and Oaxacan Chapulines, a small grasshopper seasoned with chili, lime juice and dipped in chocolate.

You may not be ready for insects on your dinner plate (even if they are served in cheese or chocolate), but CM Punk is down to try anything. And as far as Comic-Con food sources go, these can’t possibly be that bad. The line to get up to the truck was extensive, and as The Bug Chef reminds us all, bugs are an absolutely excellent source of lean protein. Who knew?

The Boxtrolls arrives in theaters September 26th, and we are excited to explore the new beautiful and weird world that Laika House has cooked up for us this time.

Bret Hart Talks Wanting To Wrestle CM Punk & Cena.

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart joined the TJRWrestling Radio show yesterday to talk about his career and the Bret Hart Invitational Tournament at X-Fest 2014 in Calgary on August 30 & 31. For more info on X-Fest 2014, visit XFestCalgary.com. To listen to the full interview head over to TJRWrestling.com or download it on iTunes.

Three opponents he would have liked to wrestle:

"I would have loved to have worked with Kurt Angle. He would have been a lot of fun to be in the ring with. I would love to wrestle John Cena, especially the Bret Hart of 1997 that was a heel against John Cena the All American good guy. For the third guy I would have to say CM Punk. Punk would have been a perfect guy for me to work with. He might have to carry me through the match with him as the heel. I miss him on the shows. I hope he makes some kind of comeback one day.”

Exclusive: CM Punk is The Laser Tag-inator.

“Comic-Con with me if you want to live.”

Unfortunately, there were no such plays on words when the steely-eyed, adamantium-abbed, cold-blooded laser tag machine CM Punk entered the Nerdist Laser Tag arena at San Diego Comic-Con. Neither we nor 2K nor Gearbox could have anticipated that a straight edge cyborg with nothing to lose would cut a laser-filled swath through all comers. His mission: to tag all lasers. His targets: all living Nerdist lifeforms. Not even the Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel-themed fun could stop his rampage. What follows may make some viewers uncomfortable, but it is an important video to watch so that history does not repeat itself. Without further ado, please bear witness as Nerdist podcast guest CM Punk unleashes the beast within and gazes ruefully upon the apocalyptic aftermath.

Check out the video here.

Paul Heyman on CM Punk's promo skills.

Paul Heyman recently spoke with Chris Yuscavage of Complex Magazine to promote his new WWE DVD and SummerSlam.

Before this interview, I revisited “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s podcast and you said that you still talk to CM Punk and that’s he’s a friend—he’ll always be a friend. Have you spoken to him recently? And do you guys have a “no-wrestling policy” when you guys talk now?

It would be very uncomfortable to describe to anyone any personal conversations I have with anybody. It would be akin to me saying, “So what did you and your wife talk about at the dinner table last night?” Or, “Hey, I heard you went to the baseball game with your best friend, what was he talking to you about?” The answer is, to the entire world, none of your business. Whether Punk and I have a “no-wrestling policy” or a “no-music policy” or a “no-religion policy,” that’s between us. And since we’re not marketing anything in public together, I’m hesitant in describing anything regarding a conversation I would have with—whether it’s CM Punk, or any other friend of mine.
