Booker T clarifies what he said about almost having “a little run-in” with CM Punk at WWE NXT event

As previously noted, Booker T stated during his podcast that he “almost had a little run-in” with CM Punk at the March 12th 2024 WWE NXT event.

During his latest podcast, Booker T clarified his comments…

“You know what? I don’t know why people want me to have — I saw somebody said, ‘I just want to see you and CM Punk have a fight.’ Look, me and CM Punk, we won’t be having a fight, OK? I want to let everybody know out there, I have no ill will toward CM Punk. Contrary to popular belief, I consider CM Punk a friend. So when I’m saying something about CM Punk, guys, do not take it literally like the internet and these sites do. Don’t take it serious, don’t jump into that mud.”

If you hear me say anything here on The Hall Of Fame, this show is show-related. I’m trying to entertain my fans that are watching this, trying to give you guys a moment where you ain’t got to think about that kind of stuff, alright? So if you hear me say something about CM Punk, Corey Graves, Michael Cole, Brad [Gilmore, his co-host], [laughs] OK? Don’t jump into the internet mess, alright? So let’s just get that out there right now because that story, that 40-second story that people wrote, it was clickbait, guys. That’s what it was, more than anything. Did I put it out there? Did I say it as far as I had a beef? You know, I was going to run up? Yeah, I said it. But like I said, I was entertaining, guys.” (quotes courtesy of
