Bobby Fish eventually made his way to AEW after he was let go by WWE as part of budget cuts last year. He teamed up with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly for a while in AEW, but it was not meant to last forever.
While speaking to Joey G. from Wrestling Headlines, Bobby Fish explained how some of the talent may no longer be one of the boys after CM Punk’s rant.
I was not in the locker room the last couple of months that I was there. Prior to that, I will say no, I didn’t feel like there was anything brewing,” Fish said. Fish went on to say that he believes it can damage camaraderie when there is an element of separation backstage.”Track record will prove that any time anyone is separated in the locker room, and now there were definitely certain people within the company that had their own locker room,” Fish said, noting that Punk and The Elite had their own locker rooms backstage.
“I don’t know, it’s just kind of my feeling that once you separate yourself from the boys, can you really be considered one of the boys? And I might be in the minority, I might be in the majority, I don’t know, but I know the separation always felt a little weird to me, but it was what it was.
We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Bobby Fish. As for CM Punk, he will be out of action for a long time due to surgery.
