RIPPA

The look on the interviewer's face at the end of that video pretty much nails it. "I CAN'T GIVE OUT THE PHONE NUMBER OF A MUTUAL FRIEND, YOU USURIOUS PIECE OF SHIT, I DISOWN YOU"

Unless Swaggle was trying to mack on somebody who Punk didn't want him to, which is possible

I think Punk had fair grievances:

1. being injured by guys like Ryback without recourse or proper time off; 

2. how is everyone gonna get paid with a $9.99 network killing PPV money?

3. not being a main event guy.

In regards to the third one, Punk just couldn't face the fact that some/most guys aren't going to be The Rock or John Cena...regardless if you are or are not better wrestlers than they are. I always said Punk was Jericho 2.0 (a top guy but not THE GUY), and I don't think he could accept that...and ultimately, that's what turned him into a big fucking crybaby.

Side tangent - in watching the promo for the Swoggle shoot, all the former WWE employees think Sheamus is a dick but Swoggle was the first guy to say so on camera (apply appropriate amount of salt as necessary)

He has to be talking about getting Colt's number, right?

I think a huge part of the reason Punk was never made "The Guy" was because of his personality.  You don't want to hang the company on a paranoid, difficult, humorless git who will throw a shitfit and maybe walk out because of every real or perceived slight.
