CM Punk’s time in AEW has been quite the experience. While his return has been a success for fans and business for AEW as a whole, there are rumors that Punk has been rubbing some people. But apparently, Punk’s current reputation is just rumors.

On the latest “Extreme Life of Matt Hardy” podcast, Jon Alba and Matt Hardy discussed if there is dissension in the AEW locker room over CM Punk. Hardy mentioned that there’s no outright chaos in the company and has no comment regarding Punk and the office.

“I don’t know. I really couldn’t speak on any of that. I mean, I can speak from my experiences. AEW has been great and everything I’ve done has been good. There’s no outright chaos and dissension backstage. Whatever kind of conversations that happen between Punk and the people in the office, I mean, I’m not privy to that right now, but he came last week and he was there to do business, obviously.”

“It’s real life. It’s human beings interacting with each other and they’re gonna have differences of opinion. They’re gonna get upset with one another. Even going back to what I said about how Jeff resented Punk whenever he made those comments, I mean, things happen. People are human beings and they have emotions and they feel, so yeah, but I mean at the end of the day, people love the fu**ing drama from behind the scenes and backstage. So a lot of times, especially to the diehard fans, that’s almost more interesting to them than the actual kick ass product they get to see right in front of their face that we’re doing for them.” 

Punk does have a history of being a lightning rod for controversy and not getting along with other talents, especially lately with reports of dissent between him and Hangman Adam Page and the ongoing heat with Colt Cabana. Ringside News will monitor the never-ending saga of CM Punk.
