CM Punk became a huge name in AEW after debuting last year and that hasn’t changed. What has changed is pretty important: his fans and peers alike perceive him differently after his most recent incident.
Punk used inflammatory language against Colt Cabana and the AEW EVPs during the media scrum after All Out. Punk and Ace Steel got in a huge fight with The Elite after the All Out media scrum due to those remarks.
While speaking on his podcast, Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, Jim Cornette shared his thoughts on the whole incident. He ripped Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks for being unprofessional.
“They’ve been exposed and they’re jealous. ‘We started this. It’s ours where we can play with all of our friends and do our cosplay trampoline wrestling…’ So, that’s why they created their little six-man thing so that they could all play together and every time it’s come for the past three weeks, 200,000 people have said, ‘f**k it. We don’t want to see this’ and the pressure because they’re being seen through. And their friends are as unprofessional and mostly untalented and in some cases, blithering d***its.
They accepted the job of being Executive Vice President. So, therefore, you can’t storm into the f***ing boy’s locker room and f***ing tell him for telling the truth in public. They’ve disqualified themselves from able to do, when you’re one of the boys.”
Ringside News exclusively reported that CM Punk’s rant caused many within the AEW locker room to side against the AEW World Champion. The tense situation backstage has caused legal problems for AEW as well. Ringside News will keep you updated on the situation.
