As for the other stuff, why do you care so much?
Because he has always been respected for how real and honest he was. Straightforward, not afraid to make sacrifices to get ahead. He was offered a gimmick to get on the main roster, and he refused. He didn't even change his name. He was the same person he was from the indies, and everyone loved that.
Now it's like, this company did so much shit to him and he's gonna smile, nod, and take money anyway? This doesn't sound like a dude keeping it real anymore. It sounds like someone the old CM Punk would rip on. But I get his wife still wants to go back and he loves money. It just seems that after all that conflict, giving up principle for cash is the least cool thing he's done besides get beat up by Michael Jackson.
