Vampiro talks about CM Punk and the origin of ‘straight edge’

filed to GERWECK.NET:


Former WCW star Vampiro returned this week to MLW Radio presented by He spoke with Konnan and Court Bauer about crossing paths with a young CM Punk in MLW and teasing him about his straight edge beliefs.

“There was kind of a weird vibe there. Kind of a ‘Hey, hey how’s it going’ type of thing. That whole straight edge thing, I get it. I used to joke about it with him. I’d give him handfuls of pills and put things in his soft drinks to [mess] with him, but in a good way, trying to break the ice. Him right away being a straight edge guy, if you’re into punk rock music you know why and where it came from, although it was kind of new then. Unfortunately, that whole straight edge scene kind of came and went really quick and it turned into what we know as ’emo.’ Emo is short for ’emotional core,’ which basically came from a straight edge concert when a dude started to cry at a punk concert.”

    “put things in his soft drink to mess with him.” Sounds like a total creep.

    “Hey Punk, Want to hang out in my hotel room tonight” Vampiro saids while handing Punk a bottle of water.

    “Thanks, Um…” Punk takes a large swig of the water before proceeding, “I dunno. Thin…gs…got a little…” Punk proceeds to fall to the ground, unconcious.

    “JACKPOT!” Vampiro exclaims, his heart filled with glee.

    Hey! I was that dude that started to cry at a punk concert! Vampiro just made me cry again which has ironically created a third, entirely different genre of music… Vampirock! It’s basically like emo but now you’re dressed like vampire, only go out at night and just date girls with really pale skin. Wait a minute…

    Haha.. Some hillarious comments. Remember when the Demon was supposed to throw Vampiro into the holy water? And Oklahoma would always call him Vampyro

    So, straight edge became emo because “some guy” cried at a punk rock concert? GET OFF THE DRUGS VAMPIRO!!!
