CM Punk: AEW stars REFUSE to sit down to speak with him

Last updated

In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, tensions can rise both inside and outside the ring. One such tension that has recently come to light involves CM Punk and the prominent AEW faction, The Elite.

CM Punk, known for his outspoken nature, made headlines during a media scrum following the All Out event last year. He didn’t hold back as he took shots at Hangman Page, the Young Bucks, and Colt Cabana.

This verbal onslaught wasn’t just limited to words, as it escalated into a backstage altercation involving The Elite, CM Punk, and Ace Steel. The aftermath of this incident has left a palpable tension backstage.

CM Punk: The Elite’s Stance

Despite the passage of time, the situation hasn’t cooled down. CM Punk, who has a significant influence in AEW, especially regarding who gets to be backstage at Collision, has expressed his desire to sit down and clear the air with The Elite, according to a new report from Fightful Select:

“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.”

However, The Elite, comprising Hangman Page, Young Bucks, and Kenny Omega, have consistently declined his requests. Hangman Page, in particular, has been notably silent on the matter, choosing to distance himself from the ongoing feud.

Speculations and Theories

There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding this feud. Some believe that CM Punk might be trying to craft this real-life tension into a storyline or angle for AEW.

This theory is further fueled by comments from those close to The Elite, suggesting that such situations make them want to further distance themselves from Punk.

However, it’s essential to note that as of now, Hangman Page’s involvement in this situation is not part of any scripted storyline.

Many in the AEW community believe that Punk’s intentions might be to integrate this feud into an on-screen angle, but the authenticity of these claims remains to be seen.
