The Second City Saint essentially buried Adam Page on live television last year. CM Punk’s promo on Adam Page was not part of the plans and was shoot. In fact, Punk even got heat on himself due to the promo. Now it appears CM Punk mocked Adam Page after AEW Collision went off the air this week.
This all stemmed from the promo Adam Page cut on Punk before their Double Or Nothing encounter last year. During a recent interview with ESPN, CM Punk claimed that Adam Page chipped his tooth during their match and lot of other things.
After this week’s episode of AEW Collision went off the air, CM Punk chose violence and went after Adam Page. He said that he figured out that they call him Hangman because nobody buys the Hangman action figures in the toy aisle and he’s a “peg warmer.”
“Look at this ‘Carolina is Hangman Country’… Earlier today I went to a local supermarket and I figured out why they call him Hangman. It’s because the pegs in the toy aisle are full of Hangman action figures because nobody wants to buy them. He’s a peg warmer, unlike me who moves merchandise, and pops ratings and sells toys.”
CM Punk was also challenged to match for AEW All In. We will have to wait and see how AEW will book Punk’s feud with Samoa Joe, as fans might not be very into the idea yet.
