Former Four Horsemen member Paul Roma spoke with ClubWWI.com. Here are some highlights. CM Punk’s look: “He looks like somebody who was dragged out of the tattoo parlor – kicks his feet up and is just chain-smoking cigarettes. Not somebody that you want your son to look like. “But, at the end of the day, you have to look at him and look at Honky Tonk Man. Honky Tonk was a guy who had no body, but had a great gimmick and people wanted to see him get beat. So when he went out there and beat all these ex-champions and champions-to-be like Tito Santana, people were saying, ‘How can that be? How can he beating Tito? How can he be beating this guy? How can he be beating that guy?’ And that’s what had you coming back. Again, it’s like Mike Tyson. You don’t have to like him, but you’re going to watch to see him get beat. If you do like him, you’re gonna watch to see him not get beat. “And that’s the same thing with CM Punk. You said it. He doesn’t have a physique. He’ s just that less-than-average guy as far as physically looking at him and he goes out there and wins, wins, wins. And it drives the average Joe out in the audience, that looks like him, to say, ‘Oh, I can do that, man. CM Punk is doing it and he looks like s–t. I can do it.’ The other people out there, who are jacked and in better shape physically, are saying, ‘When’s this guy gonna get beat?’ That’s the philosophy that Vince is using with this dude.” Being a Horsemen member: “I had friends – close friends – who said to me, ‘Don’t you understand? You’re a Horseman.’ I said, ‘Yeah. I got it, dude. I’m a Horseman.’ (They’d reply), ‘Oh dude! It’s an honor! Don’t you understand? There’s only been like a few people and blah, blah, blah.’ And I’m like, ‘Okay. Alright. I get it. I’m a Horseman. Big f–king deal. It’s not real. What are you not understanding? It’s not real.’ Take Brock Lesnar. He goes into the UFC. That’s real – as far as I know. That’s real. Those guys are fighting. He is controlling, for the most part, his own destiny. You go out there and get your a– kicked – not good. You go out there and win – that’s good. Wrestling’s not real. You go out there and they tell you if you’re gonna win or lose.” Honey Boo Boo: “You’re telling the rest of the world that it’s okay to raise an ignorant child. An obese child. And your mother can be an absolute ignorant asshole. And this what you’re putting on TV because you’re trying to get ratings. Well, keep giving them money. They’ll keep jumping in pools of mud and keep feeding their daughter Twinkies till she explodes and keep her uneducated. Because, at the end of the day, you give them 20 bucks and they’ll do whatever you ask them to do. It’s 20 bucks more than they had and it’s really sad to see that that’s what everything’s turning into.” RECENT PHOTO OF MATT AND JEFF HARDY BACKSTAGE AT REUNION SHOW….
