CM Punk is not known to hold his opinion back. If anyone had that thought about the Second City Savior, he squashed those ideas in a big way following his AEW World Title win at All Out. Punk sat next to Tony Khan during the media scrum, with the title in tow, and he buried The Young Bucks and Colt Cabana in epic fashion. Now there are huge issues.
Punk’s issues with Colt Cabana are well known. Lawsuits were involved on a couple of occasions, and this drove a huge rift between them. Hangman Page dropped shade on Punk for burying Colt Cabana in AEW during a promo a few months ago, and Punk improvised a call-out on Dynamite to make it clear he isn’t going to take that.
During the media scrum after All Out, CM Punk buried the Young Bucks for not being fit to manage a Target. Punk also threw huge shade at them for spreading the narrative that he had Colt removed from AEW. Punk claimed that he wants nothing to do with Colt Cabana.
Now, it’s 2022. I haven’t been friends with this guy since late 2013/2014 and the fact that I have to sit up here, and we have irresponsible people who call themselves EVPs who couldn’t manage a target, and they spread lies and bullsh*t, and they say that I got him fired when I want f*ck all to do with him.
Ringside News was told that “Punk drew a line in the sand. You’re either with him or f*ck you, he wants you gone.” We can also confirm that there was a physical altercation, and we were told that Punk was the aggressor, but we were unable to confirm who he “took a swing” at first. Ace Steel was also present in the melee.
This fight took place during Swerve In Our Glory’s time during the scrum, so it happened right after CM Punk left the room. We were also told that this “completely divided the locker room” and the scene was terribly unprofessional.
We were told that the locker room is in chaos now. They are 100% divided, because it’s either for or against CM Punk. A majority of the locker room is also against CM Punk, with Danhausen and FTR being the only talent we can confirm who are still likely to “basically” stand behind Phil Brooks.
Talent were discussing this event nonstop after it went down, and nobody is happy about things. The whole ordeal was described as “wild and chaotic.”
This is a still developing story and there are many layers to unravel. Tony Khan must make a decision on the matter and be a boss, because his World Champion caused three of his remaining Executive Vice Presidents to threaten a walkout last night.
