CM Punk was called a ‘cancer’ by fellow AEW star

Last updated

AEW star CM Punk was reportedly called a ‘cancer’ by a tenured member of the All Elite Wrestling roster following the ALL OUT PPV.

According to a new report from Fightful Select, Chris Jericho had some choice words for his former colleague back in September 2022.

“We’ve heard about some of the names that were around during the brawl who were suspended as they were physically involved, but there were also several that approached shortly thereafter” the site began.

“One of those was Chris Jericho, who was heavily lauded by those we spoke to for his resolve and demeanor stepping up during the scrum right after the incident took place.

“Fightful Select was told by numerous sources that Chris Jericho approached CM Punk, unhappy about the Brawl Out fight as well as the nature of the scrum that had just taken place” the site revealed.

“Jericho told CM Punk that he was a cancer to the locker room, and a detriment to the company. Those we’ve spoken to didn’t recount CM Punk’s reply verbatim, but said that he effectively told Jericho it wasn’t his business and needed to leave” Fightful revealed.

“Shortly after, Jericho stepped up to appear at the scrum. He also helped lead a talent meeting in the days that followed, and was signed to a significant extension that saw his responsibilities expanded along the way” the site concluded.
