CM Punk had a meltdown during the post-All Out press conference, and that didn’t sit well with fans and peers alike. Punk went ballistic against Colt Cabana and dragged Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks into his tirade as well. Punk and Ace Steel got in a fight with The Elite after the scrum was over.
Tony Khan responded by stripping Punk and The Elite of their championships. While the new AEW World Trios Tag Team Champions were crowned last night on Dynamite, the fate of the AEW World Championship will be decided in the finals of the Grand Slam Tournament of Champions on September 21, 2022.
Ringside News exclusively reported that the AEW locker room was divided after the fight, and many wanted Punk gone from the company. WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash was the latest to share his two cents on the whole fiasco on Thursday.
Former WCW announcer Mark Madden took issue with what Punk said. Madden made an excellent point when he said, “BTW, why was it a big deal or insulting that Colt Cabana shared a bank account with his mother? I shared one with mine when I helped support her as she grew elderly. Opened the account for that reason. I didn’t get that being brought up.”
Big Kev replied to give his two cents about Punk making a big deal out of Colt Cabana sharing his bank account with his mother.
I think the fact he’s sitting next to his boss who’s basically in the same situation In reference to his dad’s money is covering the monthly nut.
AEW removed CM Punk from Dynamite’s opening video as well. The Elite were also removed from the opening intro package, but there’s been no talk of firing Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks.
Punk wanted things to go his way, but that ended up blowing in his face. His future with AEW remains uncertain in the wake of the backstage ordeal. We’ll have to wait to find out what’s next. In the meantime, Colt Cabana has not publicly commented on this situation.
