CM Punk proved all doubters wrong after becoming the new AEW World Champion at AEW Double Or Nothing. Fans had high expectations from his reign but ended up being disappointed. AEW was also blasted for its last-minute booking of the AEW World Title scene.
As seen on a previous week’s episode of AEW Rampage, CM Punk revealed that he is injured. This shocked fans as they believed another Summer Of Punk was going to happen.
While speaking on Cornette’s Drive-Thru, Jim Cornette expressed his displeasure at the battle royale on this week’s Dynamite. It was won by Kyle O’Reilly, who lost to Jon Moxley.
“And I don’t agree with the battle royale, that just clutters the thing up and it’s mark booking. And, it shouldn’t have been announced at the same time. If Punk had come out and announced the injury and then they would have said that had not Tony Khan making this announcement. We’ve seen what he comes off like on television.
If they just said that ladies and gentlemen, right now, Tony Khan and members of the AEW staff are meeting to determine how an interim champion will be crowned in AEW to defend that title, while CM Punk is inactive and then to unify on his return. And we’re gonna have those plans and that announcement next week here on the program. Then, you’ve got a week not to f***in go off and fart out a bunch of s**t that may bite you in the a** later on.
Jon Moxley will be facing off against Hiroshi Tanahashi at the Forbidden Door event on June 26th to determine the interim AEW World Champion. We’ll have to see who will win the match in the end.
