CM Punk has never failed to burn bridges with almost every promotion he has worked with, especially with WWE. His fairytale run with AEW came to an abrupt end last week and it all began with his antics at the media scrum after All Out last year. It appears Punk was dragged for mentioning Colt Cabana’s mother during the media scrum.

CM Punk ended up ruining his reputation after AEW All Out last year after he went on a tirade against The Elite and Colt Cabana during the media scrum. During the meltdown, he mentioned how Colt Cabana still uses his mother’s bank account and more.

While speaking on his latest Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T talked about CM Punk mentioning Colt Cabana’s mother during the media scrum and made it clear he did not approve of Punk’s words, adding that it was simply classless on Punk’s part.

“I would almost be willing to say that Punk has met [Cabana’s mother]. Coke and a smile. Yes, they may have broken bread. He may have sat in the house and made small talk, whatever. You know what I mean? Right. So, to have a problem with Cabana and bringing his mom up by name. It’s a no-no. It just goes to show you that’s a classless move. It was just a low blow. I mean, because the thing is. Punk, he’s a rich guy. He’s got a lot of money and got money. Cabana is a guy who’s there again. He may have been living with his mom. He’s not a guy that’s a rich guy. He hasn’t had the breaks that Punk has had in his business. He hasn’t. You know what I mean? So, to belittle him and try throwing it in his face, just go. It was a classless move. And people can say what they want, but you aren’t going to hear me talking about somebody’s mama, especially if I met him.”


Tony Khan ended up firing CM Punk last week after the latter’s backstage fight with Jack Perry at AEW All In. Khan would then provide the reason behind Punk’s firing. Only time will tell whether CM Punk will ever wrestle again, as it seems highly unlikely right now.

What do you make of what Booker T said? Do you believe CM Punk crossed the line by mentioning Colt Cabana’s mother? Let us know in the comments!
