CM PunkWWE Superstar CM Punk spoke to Yahoo Sports, and had some harsh words for Milwaukee Brewers player Ryan Braun, who was suspended for the 2012/13 season in June, in violation of the MLB's drug policy. 

"Look at [Ryan] Braun. That dude just denied, denied, denied and then he gets caught and goes, 'oh yeah, I'm sorry, I made a mistake.' I don't believe you. You're a liar. You've already proved it publicly in an open public forum. You're a liar. Just shut the [expletive] up and go wash dishes for a living."

"There seems to be this weird moral debate about what exactly is cheating. If you're on a list from some fancy bourgeoisie pharmacy, you're doing drugs. Regardless of what your personal stance is on that in the guidelines of Major League Baseball, there are banned substances. I don't care if you like the rule. If you're a baseball player, follow the rule. If you don't like it, don't be a baseball player."

The full article mentions Punk's upcoming SummerSlam match against Brock Lesnar, and his straight-edge lifestyle and affiliation with other straight-edge baseballs players.
