CM Punk was a controversial figure in pro wrestling for years. He burned a lot of bridges and stopped talking to friends in the pro wrestling business. He also had a lot of public legal drama with Colt Cabana. Now Punk and Cabana are in the same company and many are wondering if there is any friction.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer was asked whether any word about heat between Punk and Cabana in AEW. There is no heat and it’s not anticipated that there ever will be, because everyone maintains a professional atmosphere as they work together for the good of AEW.
“There’s nothing there [between CM Punk and Colt Cabana]. Look, there are a few people in that company who probably, I won’t say plenty of people, but there’s a few people in that company who probably, I mean they may have made up, but I know they’re not particularly fond of Punk for whatever reason. There haven’t been any incidences and there’s not gonna be. I mean it’s part of wrestling, there’s always going to be people who don’t get along with each other. I mean, in every locker room there are guys who have pasts and everything like that. I haven’t heard a word, and I don’t anticipate. Colt Cabana is a total pro and Punk’s a pro.”
Dave Meltzer also mentioned that Kurt Angle and Jeff Jarrett were in the same company for years, and they had drama over Karen. The two also feuded on television, but things remained professional. CM Punk might have ruffled some feathers along the way, but it’s easy sailing in AEW at this juncture.
