CM Punk speaks his mind about Vince McMahon when asked about sex trafficking allegations

During an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, CM Punk commented on the sex trafficking allegations against Vince McMahon

“There’s no positivity there. I didn’t read all the allegations. I read text messages and I went, ‘Oh, fuck this.’ It’s indefensible. And I think doing this [interview], I had imagined I was going to be asked about it. I think the easiest thing for people to do is to ignore it or avoid it. But man, it’s there. My initial first thing out of my mouth was, ‘I’m shocked at how dumb he was writing stuff down and leaving that paper trail.’ It’s horrific. I think at this point, all the energy should be to somehow, I don’t even know if you can make reparations or amends, but there’s victims here. So what CM Punk thinks about Vince and the CM Punk-Vince relationship doesn’t fucking mean anything. All that stuff takes a back seat. I’m more concerned about going forward, how do those people survive after suffering all that trauma? My biggest concern.”

When asked if the wrestling business is better off without Vince McMahon, Punk said the following…

“How do you say anything but yes, the business is better without [Vince McMahon]”

Punk continued with his thoughts on Vince…

“It’s very, very hard to reconcile. I heard what Becky [Lynch] said, because Vince is a father figure to a lot of people. Vince, I think, liked to develop the father relationship. And I think that’s where he was always fascinated with me because I was just like, ‘Fuck you. I got a dad. You’re my boss. Let’s just keep it that way.'”

“It’s just wild, all that shit. It’s sad. It ruined his life. He ruined his life ruining other people’s lives.”
