Mick Foley slates CM Punk for AEW comments

Last updated

WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley recently slated CM Punk for his comments during the AEW ALL OUT Post-Show media scrum.

Punk of course went on a now epic rant where he verbally attacked Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks.

Speaking on his Foley Is Pod podcast, the former Mankind would say that Punk put AEW President Tony Khan in a ‘bad’ position with his comments.

“Everything Punk did was disastrous because it put Tony Khan in a bad position. Punk I believe was hurt and would have probably been out” Foley began.

“It put a lot of eyeballs on the product the next night. That’s a given. It was just really unfortunate. You don’t want to see that side of your superstars” Foley added.

“I know when I held that title aloft when I beat this guy (The Rock) for the WWE title, I never thought I was a WWE title guy. So I never based my career on it the way that a lot of people have, but I remember that feeling of just utter joy.

“I moved pretty good for a big guy when I ran my two or three laps around there and then gave it the impromptu promo. I can’t imagine going backstage and being angry or bitter or taking the joy out of the experience for our fans” Foley finished, slating the former WWE Champion Punk.
