CM Punk has once again trashed Hulk Hogan over his alleged love for the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning.
Punk was doing coverage during yesterday’s Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup victory parade for CSN Chicago and blasted Hogan for appointing himself as a spokesperson for the Lightning when he doesn’t even know their team captain’s name.
When Hogan’s name came up and Punk was told Hogan is a big Tampa Bay Lightning fan, Punk disagreed.
“No he’s not,” Punk said. “That’s the problem I have with that. If I’m a Lightning fan, I’m embarrassed they hitched their wagon to a guy like that. Doesn’t know Stamkos’s name, the captain’s name. Icing to him is something he eats three times a day.”
“My love for hockey supersedes anything else and I would just like to see people tune in and understand the game and appreciate the game for what it is. You put something on there like that, it kind of lowers it a little… If I’m a Lightning fan, I want someone to better represent my team. They’re a hell of an organization. That paints them in the wrong light.”
