WWE legend CM Punk takes subtle dig at Vince McMahon as he replies to Charlotte Flair social media post
WWE legend CM Punk seized an opportunity to take a subtle dig at former boss Vince McMahon.
The 42-year-old hasn't set foot inside the ring since he left the company on sour terms in 2014 and subsequently announced his retirement.
And Punk couldn't resist taking a funny dig at WWE chief McMahon as he replied to a tweet posted by Charlotte Flair.
On Wednesday evening, The Queen shared a photo of herself smiling on RAW commentary and wrote: "caption this".
Punk couldn't resist getting involved by referencing McMahon's infamous treatment of guest commentators in WWE.
He replied: "GODDAMNIT PAL WATCH THE MONITORS AND STOP SAYING WRESTLING PAL.”
WWE boss McMahon has a reputation for constantly barking orders in the ear of announcers from his Gorilla position backstage.

Punk, who made regular appearances on commentary during his time in the company, previously admitted how stressful he found the role.
Speaking on the Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette podcast in 2020, he said: "I remember the first night on commentary, Vince started yelling in my headset.
"I elbowed Lawler. I wrote a note to him asking which is the volume bottom.
"He pointed to it and I turned it all the way down. When we took the headsets off after the show, I was like, ‘Did you not know you can do that?’ He said, ‘We are going to get yelled at.’
"Vince never said anything to me."
Three-time WWE champion Punk tried to build a career in mixed martial arts after leaving wrestling and was signed by UFC in December 2014.
But he lost both his fights and resurfaced in the wrestling world in November 2019 as part of Fox Sports' punditry team for WWE Backstage.
