AEW Dynamite’s latest show at Chicago was a huge blast. Fans went nuts with the promo that CM Punk and Maxwell Jacob Friedman cut together. The crowd of Chicago gave hometown hero CM Punk a thunderous welcome, only for MJF to obstruct the superstar’s homecoming.
MJF kicked off the promo by accusing Punk to be a meth addict. Any long time fans of the superstar know how absurd a claim that is, given how Punk was known to be straight edge. MJF then referenced Punk’s pipebomb promo on WWE.
Doesn’t feel so good getting interrupted does it? Quite frankly, you really hurt my feelings last week. I extended out my hand like a gentleman. It was almost as bad as the time you quit, took your ball and went home. You know what was great? The pipe bomb. That was your best moment. Except every MJF moment is the best MJF moment. Because unlike you, I’m not a one trick pony. Don’t get it twisted. I respect you. I even respect that you’re straight edge, but how does someone who is straight edge look like a meth addict?
MJF shot a lot of WWE themed insults at Punk. However, the former WWE superstar was ready with some of his own. He called MJF a “little less-famous Miz.” Punk even referenced John Cena, Stephanie McMahon and her marriage with Triple H. He said:
I’m in your head. Probably has something to do with the fact that you’ve got a poster of me on your wall. I shut up the great MJF without saying a word. You think you’re someone when in reality, he’s just a less-famous Miz.
The Miz reference really took AEW fans by storm. The Miz has been trending on Twitter, as fans are coming together to make jokes on the mention. With WWE and AEW under rivalry, fans get excited over any references to each other from the two promotions really riles the fans up.
