AEW has a lot going on right now, and CM Punk’s return made things very complicated for some people. Now, it seems that one unnamed top name in the company is not okay with this situation at all.

CM Punk’s return to AEW came last week during the premiere episode of Collision. His off-the-cuff promo took some inside baseball shots at the Young Bucks as well, and this prompted them to respond via their Twitter bio.

The Wrestling Observer Newseltter noted that one top AEW star now has a bad taste in his mouth about the whole ordeal. It wasn’t noted who this report is about, but they went home after Dynamite in a bad mood.

One top name noted to us that they went home after the show on Wednesday in a bad mood and, even with the key people kept apart and not on the same shows, described the fear of this being a ticking time bomb that will not have a happy ending.


CM Punk certainly knows how to divide people, but this isn’t the time for that. A “ticking time bomb” within the company is never a good thing to hear whispers of, especially if a top star is expressing those thoughts.

Tony Khan is doing his best to keep everyone happy here, but he also wants to make money. He realizes that fans still want to see CM Punk, even if the locker room might be divided over this.

AEW might have to eventually make a decision about this situation. It appears that things aren’t getting any better, because CM Punk hasn’t changed his tune one bit.
