After a day full of news from around the wrestling world, Dax Harwood took to Twitter to lighten the mood. The AEW star shared some fan art with a cheeky caption to further the narrative that there are problems with CM Punk in AEW.
CM Punk went off-script at the beginning of his promo on AEW Dynamite this week. Punk laid the title down on the canvas and called out fan favorite Hangman Adam Page. When Page didn’t show up, he called him a coward and then turned his attention to Interim World Champion, Jon Moxley.
The retweet from Harwood was from a fan with artwork of FTR holding Punk on their shoulders after he won the world title in Las Vegas, this past May. The caption that was on the retweet read, “Punk bullied me into doing this.”
An obvious joke, fans got a good laugh out of it. Harwood’s tag team partner, Cash Wheeler, commented that the artist “Completely went into business for himself with this great piece of art.” Both comments referencing Punk’s comments toward Adam Page.
Wrestlers trying to make light out of a messy situation isn’t unheard of. In fact, it’s pretty normal. This was just another one of those instances, and it certainly won’t be the last. We will continue monitoring this ongoing story here at Ringside News.
