CM Punk made a return to AEW, and he promised Tony Khan that he wouldn’t publicly bash Kenny Omega or the Young Bucks. He didn’t say anything about Adam Page, and the Second City Savior certainly used that loophole in a big way.
CM Punk dragged Adam Page in promo after Collision, and things were a bit strange after that. CM Punk’s name was also connected with other stars not being allowed to go to Collision tapings, adding to the drama surrounding his name.
Adam “Hangman” Page cut a promo on Dynamite this week, but it was pre-taped. That being said, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Page was asked to be a peacekeeper when they requested that he film that segment early.
Adam Page was also booked for that show. He was to tape an interview backstage that would air on Dynamite. He lives in the area so it wasn’t a case where he flew to the show, but he was there and then told not to come to the building. One wrestler noted to us that it would have made sense for Page to have come out off TV as a surprise pop since he’s from the area but as far as we know his only role was to do the pre-tape and not appear before the crowd.
When he was then told not to go to the building, the term used was “to keep the peace” and his promo taping was moved to another location in Greensboro. The story going around after was that it was Punk-related, with different people in the company with knowledge of the situation both confirming and denying that part of the story.
Only time will tell what happens in this situation. There are no current plans for CM Punk to wrestle any members of The Elite. At this point, they legit don’t like each other, and we can only hope that time heals those wounds.
CM Punk reportedly wants to sit down and talk with The Elite, but they’re not interested. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more on this story, and everything else going on in the pro wrestling world.
