CM Punk made his debut last year at AEW Rampage: The First Dance and instantly became one of their top stars. He competed against numerous top talent since then, especially against Adam Page. Even Booker T shared his thoughts on Punk’s latest controversy.
The Second City Saint started AEW Dynamite this week with a promo. He called out Adam Page and issued a rematch to him for the title. However, Page never showed up, and CM Punk dubbed the entire thing as ‘less important.’
CM Punk’s promo on Adam Page was not part of the plans and was shoot. In fact, CM Punk even got heat on himself due to the promo. While speaking on the Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T stated that he is not surprised at the backstage drama involving CM Punk.
“I am not surprised. I mean, I have been in the locker room with him, you know you’re talking about backstage. Everything that we are hearing in news right now, on social media, I am not surprised one bit. I know the fans, you know, theyr really love CM Punk. They got some kind of love affair with this guy and I’ve said it before, CM Punk is, he has that ability to make fans feel a certain way about him.”
