During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks. Things simply spiraled out of control from there, and this is not a work. That being said, if it’s all for a pro wrestling storyline, then Tony Khan has Eric Bischoff’s respect.
Punk and Ace Steel were involved in a brawl with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega after Punk’s scathing words. Ringside News exclusively reported that the AEW locker room is divided now.
While speaking on a bonus clip from Ad Free Shows recently, Eric Bischoff offered his take on the entire situation. Bischoff stated that he would be AEW’s biggest fan if the whole ordeal is a work.
“He’s paying that cat lots of money,” Bischoff said. “He’s paying CM Punk a fortune and CM Punk is cutting his balls off, not only in front of everybody else in the roster, the executive team, the production team, oh, by the way, his business partners, you know, like Warner Discovery, potential advertisers, potential sponsors, maybe even if need be, a potential network to sell their show to should something go wrong with the Warner Discovery merger. For what reason?
If there was money in it, if it was part of a story, and everybody I just mentioned including TV partners are on board and understand what you’re doing, have had it man. It could work. I’ll be your biggest fan.
I’ll support taking a risk like that because you have to take big risks to gain big rewards. You just do.
Not all of them work out, but you gotta try, and if that’s what they’re doing, hats off if everybody’s on board, but if Punk is just venting his spleen, spreading the heat around the entire roster, instead of focusing on his opponent which is business, man, I feel bad for Tony.”
