Former WWE star Trevor Murdoch stopped by Under the Mat Radio and discussed Chis Benoit, Lance Cade, his restaurant, and more. You can listen to the full interview by clicking here, here are some highlights:

What WWE thought about CM Punk when he first came in:

"I'm not going to name any names but when Punk was in developmental there were a lot of people bagging on him. They were like who is this guy? Tattooed up with a Pepsi symbol on his arm, what they thought was a Pepsi symbol on his arm and him being an internet sensation and indy sensation. They really couldn't see the big picture the connection that he has with the fans when he goes out there. How much hard work he puts in his craft and when he steps out that curtain how much hard work he puts out there."

The differences of wrestling now to when he was growing up:

"The wrestling end of it is changing daily it's not the sport that it was when I was younger following it. It's more towards the entertainment end of it and that's a machine you really can't stop unless the fans change that…and what I mean by fans is that they all have to get together and speak loud and clear and let them know that's what they want. Everything they (WWE) do on TV is based on what they do for viewership and it's up to us as fans to change that. I respect the WWE and all it has done for me."

Trevor also discussed a crazy road story with Harley Race, how he got hired in WWE, how he was the security guard walking out with Kane back in 2003 and much more. You can listen to the full interview by clicking here.
