REPORTS: CM Punk anger almost lead him to quit AEW

Last updated

AEW World Champion CM Punk recently called out AEW Interim World Champion Jon Moxley, Hangman Page, and Eddie Kingston on the latest edition of AEW Dynamite. It was reported that Punk went off script when he called out Page for a rematch from their bout earlier this year. It is believed that Punk knew that the former champion wouldn’t appear to accept his challenge. It has come to light that he has expressed his displeasure as well.

Many believe CM Punk almost decided to leave AEW

Fightful Select reported that Punk has been expressing his displeasure verbally, sometimes so blatantly that some thought he might quit AEW. People close to the former WWE Champion told Fightful that “he might have almost decided to stay home” instead of showing up last night, but don’t believe “The Best in the World” would’ve quit. Fightful also stated they haven’t been given any inkling to believe that Punk will leave AEW, but they have been told by one All Elite veteran that they’ve heard “threats being levied” by Punk.

After defeating Page at Double or Nothing in May, Punk was forced to sit on the sidelines for several months nursing a foot injury. Although the feud between Punk and Page ended that night, the two supposedly haven’t seen eye-to-eye since the build-up to their match.

Punk is officially set to unify the AEW World Championship on next week’s Dynamite against the interim champion Jon Moxley,
