Remember when CM Punk delivered his famous “pipe bomb” speech? Of course you do. Everyone remembers that, from the “Stone Cold” Steve Austin shirt to John Cena splayed out across the ruins of a table, the broken witness to The Second City Saint’s scorching oration. The way the WWE Universe’s boos of the pontificating Punk melted into stunned silence, then slowly into cheers as Punk exposed and condemned the backstage machinations of WWE.

Everyone remembers him rallying the fans and the powers that be alike into a call for change that has resonated throughout the past year and led to the emergence of unlikely champions like Daniel Bryan, Zack Ryder and even Punk himself. Everyone remembers the story that got cut off at the very end. Everyone remembers Punk calling out John Laurinaitis by (a fairly un-PG) name and the promise that he’d become WWE Champion before the whole sordid series of events had run its course.

What gets lost slightly in our collective memory of the “pipe bomb,” in between all the corporate skullduggery and personal potshots at the McMahon family, was that CM Punk had a few choice words for “Dwayne” as well.
