The AEW All Out media scrum ended in chaos after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally decimating everyone involved.
Punk was involved in a backstage brawl where he fought with The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega. As previously reported, AEW has suspended everyone involved in the brawl. There was also the chance of Punk and Ace Steel getting fired.
Punk was also said to have suffered an injury during AEW All Out and even underwent surgery for the same. While speaking on the 83 Weeks podcast on AdFreeShows.com, Eric Bischoff made it clear that he can’t imagine Tony Khan not firing CM Punk after the latter humiliated him during the media scrum.
“The worst part of what happened in that media circus was the level to which Phil Brooks, whatever his name is, Phil went to humiliate Tony Khan. He eviscerated him. First he cut his balls off, made him look like a complete tool, and then when that wasn’t enough, and he had more time to just ramble on, I think he humiliated Tony Khan.”
“Now I’ve said some things about Tony. Other people have said some things about Tony that aren’t flattering, but just to sit next to a guy that you’re paying millions of dollars to and have him trash your company and make you look like a complete fu**ing tool, which he did. It’s not the fight. I don’t give two sh*ts about the fight. The only thing I would have cared about the fight is who got the best shot. I think the way Phil humiliated Tony, that was unforgivable.”
I never had anything like that happen to me. Now, guys would say sh*t that was leaked to the media because that’s what a lot of guys did back then. They would leak things to the media to try to help execute their agenda or get a point across that they couldn’t otherwise make. That sh*t happened and it bothered me, but nobody ever sat next to me in a media scrum just completely trashing my company and making me look like a complete as*hole. That never happened.
I just can’t imagine a scenario where you’d keep that guy around. I cannot imagine one, and if they do, my guess, it’s just a guess having been involved in litigation, that they’re keeping them around until they can determine, they meaning AEW, that from a legal perspective, they’re bulletproof, because otherwise you got this disgruntled piece of sh*t named CM Punk, that oh, just coincidentally, supposedly tore a tricep early in his match. Is there any indication of that? Has anybody seen anything in that match that makes him go, ‘I can see yep, there’s really.’ Now maybe there is. I didn’t see the match. I’m not saying it’s bullsh*t. What I am saying is bullsh*t is when I saw him in that press conference, he didn’t have any fu**ing problem feeding his face with Twinkies.
He wasn’t selling anything. He wasn’t in pain. He was stuffing his face like he hadn’t eaten in a fu**ing month. I mean, he looks like a wino. It looks like somebody picked him up on a street corner somewhere in Chicago and sobered him up 20 minutes before the press room. He looks like sh*t, always has. But did you see him selling his tricep when he was eating? He was just fu**ing two fisting Twinkies while he was up there. You couldn’t see it right? So I think it’s bullsh*t. I think he got hurt, I think he tore his tricep in that backstage altercation, whatever that was. That’s gonna be a mess. So if they keep him around it’s because they’re trying to navigate that. That’s my guess.”
Eric Bischoff also recently blasted CM Punk for being bitter and brittle. He will also be out of action for a long time, well into next year because of the injury. Things simply don’t look good for Punk in general.
