Nash was asked about his thoughts on the former WWE Champion walking out on huge money and a big spot on the main show, and the former WCW star said when they spent time talking at the Royal Rumble earlier this year, Punk was upset that the powers that be were putting the match together above the wrestlers putting the match together.
Nash also indicated that Punk was not a small guy and he wasn't a big guy either, therefore he took a lot of punishment on a nightly basis. He also said he had a heating pack on his back at the Rumble, and when they shared a floor to sleep on while traveling in London, England together, Nash woke up almost paralyzed while Punk woke up and put his pack back on. Asking what his condition was, Punk told Nash he hadn't gotten an MRI at that point, but Nash believes he's had one since.
Chief Jay Strongbow once told Nash when he was starting out in the business to get a house and pay cash for it so that once he's done in the business, he has a place to call home. Nash then said Punk lived in a nice townhouse and that he's a simple guy who doesn't need 15 cars. He also said Punk was an indy guy for over 10 years before he started out on top. Because of the wear and tear, Nash thinks Punk saved his millions and surely is a smart guy by avoiding a burn out, even though he missed a big payday.
