- Mister Saint Laurent reporting…


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."

    What a moron. It’s such a wonder why Vampiro is not the WWE champion right. Waste of space for a human.

  • ceedot

    I don't understand the animosity towards Vampiro?

    • Chris H

      He made a comment comparing straight edge to emo, so all the posers won't like that. Because their label is better than someone else's label.

      • Dave Barton

        I thought the animosity was because Vamp purposely tried to force drugs & booze on Punk…the labels never even occured to me.

  • Heel

    Good thing Vampiro is completely irrelevant these days, as I would hate for young people to take his punk rock history lesson as gospel.

  • Fozzy Bear

    Emo, goth, straight edge…it’s all crap so doesn’t matter. Vampiro is a tool

  • pocco

    Haha. Listen to all you emo marks. Vampiro just gave you a glimpse into lockeroom history and all you clowns do is bash him. No wonder the boys laugh at the IWC.
