The AEW All Out media scrum ended in complete and utter disaster after CM Punk went on a scathing rant on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and The Young Bucks, verbally ruining everyone mentioned and then some.
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.
While speaking with the Battleground podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer DDP shared his thoughts on CM Punk’s rant and subsequent brawl. DDP stated hat he believes CM Punk shot himself in the foot with that move.
“Tony Khan and I got pretty close [after I helped Cody at All In] and he’s a really good dude. I felt bad for him when [CM] Punk was going through his rant. But you know, Punk, that’s what he does. He says what’s on his mind and it’s really worked out for him a lot of times.
This time, I kinda think he shot himself in the foot a little bit but he’ll get through it. He’ll be fine. I’m sure he’s making stupid money right now, and that’s kinda like F U money for that spot. But again, I don’t really know Punk that well.
By his actions, he’s the kind of guy who wears his heart on his sleeve obviously, but what you see is what you get. He’s not gonna candy coat anything, although he probably could a little bit. He’s gonna be himself and he’s gonna be true to himself and I don’t think it got him fired or anything. I think he’ll get a suspension along with the rest of the boys and hopefully they’ll come back with a different attitude when it comes to like the company is paying everybody. I’ve always said that the stories in the back are way more intense then the stories outside. What the fans get to see and what really happens, there’s just so much. Rome with backstabbing has nothing on professional wrestling.”
EC3 also feels that AEW has severe lack of leadership following the brawl at AEW All Out. We will have to wait and see how AEW will weather the storm in the coming months.
