CM Punk had a lot to say during the media scrum following All Out last year, and he dragged Hangman Page, the Young Bucks, and Colt Cabana in brutal fashion. That led to a backstage fight with The Elite and CM Punk and Ace Steel backstage, and things are still not pretty.

CM Punk is still back in AEW, and controlling who gets to be backstage at Collision, but he is not okay with The Elite. Things are tricky backstage, to say the least, as both sides are not working in this situation one bit.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that CM Punk is telling people that he wants to sit down with The Elite, but they are refusing that request. Hangman Page on the other hand, is not talking and trying to stay out of things.

Punk claims to people that he talks to that he still wants to sit down with Hangman Page, Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, but they refuse. Those we spoke to say that Hangman Page generally avoids the situation, and has not been interested in working with Punk at least over the last year or so.


It was also made very clear that, “The situation was not a work on Hangman’s end as of publishing this article, though many on Collision have said that they believe Punk is trying to work himself into an angle. Those close with the Elite say that these situations make them want to distance themselves more.”

We will keep a close eye on this story, and everything else in the pro wrestling world, right here at Ringside News. This should be quite a story when everything is finally unpacked.
