CM Punk made his All Elite Wrestling debut a few months ago at AEW Rampage: The First Dance. It certainly changed the pro wrestling world as many people took notice of the company. Tony Schiavone considered it the greatest debut in pro wrestling history.

CM Punk has become one of the mainstays of AEW television and has feuded against the likes of Darby Allin, Eddie Kingston and others. Finally, CM Punk started a long-awaited feud with MJF.

As seen on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, CM Punk and MJF engaged in a war of words that saw CM Punk referencing the likes of The Miz and Triple H and others. It received a lot of praise from fans and pro wrestlers alike.

While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray talked about CM Punk and MJF’s promo battle. Bully Ray criticized one aspect of the promo, where CM Punk said ‘needled***’ to MJF and explained why it shouldn’t have been said.

“So, if I’m CM Punk you know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna let MJF pile all those shots on me. I’m gonna let him get in as much steam on me as I possibly can because I know I don’t have enough material to come back at him with.

He doesn’t have that much time in the business and the amount of time he does have he’s been doing so well. If I’m Punk in that situation, and this is definitely a Monday morning quarterback call cause I haven’t thought about this until now, I think I might let him get the best of me for real.

Pile on so much heat that people are like, ‘Holy crap, Punk’s in a lot of trouble.’ And then have to do the one thing that you can beat him at, with your fists. That’s why I thought the needle dick line was stupid. ‘I’d like to punch you right in your needle dick.’ You’re supposed to wanna punch him in the face.”

The promo was also blasted for being similar to Monday Night RAW. We will have to wait and see how AEW will book CM Punk and MJF’s feud as it is certainly one of the best things going on in the company right now.
