As noted, WWE spoofed CM Punk’s UFC 203 loss during Dolph Ziggler vs. Miz at WWE Backlash last sunday. You might recall the match opened with Ziggler ducking a wild punch from Miz and then Ziggler took Miz down and hit some ground-and-pound fists. Miz, however, was able to escape the beatdown and make it to the ropes for a break.
Gall spoke to TMZ Sports about that match and, during the interview, Gall was asked about the spot and said that it was “an honor.”
“That’s cool, man,” He said. “It’s an honor. I think it’s not so much me but their feelings against him, so, I guess that’s kinda crappy. But you know, hey, I loved it, it’s cool man.”
