The wrestling community is buzzing with discussions about the recent AEW controversy, stemming from a post-match promo delivered by CM Punk on AEW Collision. Of course, CM Punk is in the middle of that controversy.

In the segment, Punk directed critical remarks towards Hangman Adam Page, prompted by a sign displaying the words ‘Hangman Was Right.’ This all revolves around a greater story, and the biggest that Ryan Nemeth has ever been part of.

In the aftermath of the segment, reports surfaced indicating that several AEW performers were asked to leave the Collision tapings, with some departures potentially influenced by Punk himself.

Speaking on the Battlegrounds podcast, Tony Khan was asked about the reports, as well as the promo Punk cut on Hangman after Collision.


“No, not really. I thought it was a great show Saturday night and I don’t have any further comment to that, but I am glad people are still very interested in our wrestlers and what’s happening after the wrestling shows.

“I think we’ll try to have a couple great shows this week but certainly there has been a lot of interest in what’s happening in AEW in and out of the ring.” 

Tony Khan obviously doesn’t want to draw more attention to this story, but that’s not going to work. Pro wrestling fans are interested, and they now officially care about this situation. So, Tony Khan might need to get a handle on this story before it escalates further.

We will keep a close eye on this story here at Ringside News. There could be a lot more to unpack by the time this story is over with.
