CM Punk is undoubtedly one of the most divisive figures in pro wrestling right now and that’s unlikely to ever change. His beef with Adam Page is clearly not over, but it appears Punk was not behind Page getting removed from last week’s AEW Collision taping.
After last week’s episode of AEW Collision went off the air, CM Punk decided to take multiple shots at Adam Page and mocked him in promo. In fact, Punk might have been responsible for sending non-contracted AEW talent home after this week’s episode of AEW Collision.
Many also believed CM Punk was responsible for getting Adam Page removed from the show. According to a report by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Adam Page was not ‘removed’ from last week’s AEW Collision taping, adding that CM Punk had nothing to do with what happened to Page.
Sources within AEW confirmed to PWInsider.com this morning that Hangman Page was not “removed” from this past Saturday’s Collision taping.
It was simply a case of the location of the promo being moved to a different place, which had zero to do with CM Punk. The belief is that the Punk promo after the show bled into the promo being moved by those looking to knock Punk.
As we noted yesterday, Page lives in the Greensboro area, which is why the promo was going to be filmed that day. It was not a case of the company sending him on the road and then sending him home.
We are also told by the same sources that Punk texted an apology to Page early Sunday morning but the same sources remained unaware if the two sides had conversed, just that an apology had been sent.
Punk noted he was “rocked” during the same post-match promo but no one has confirmed he was concussed during the six man tag against the House of Black.
AEW also has no plans for Punk vs Page feud in the future. CM Punk also apologized to Adam Page for his off-air promo on AEW Collision. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see what will become of Punk in the end.
