CM Punk went off on Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, and AEW EVPs (The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, though he didn’t mention them by name) in his comments during the AEW All Out post-show media scrum, and those comments may have sparked a firestorm behind the scenes.
Fightful Select reports that backstage talent told them The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega were “extremely pissed off” backstage after Punk’s comments about them, which included saying they were “spreading lies.” , and that a backstage talent claimed that the three of them were threatening to leave. AEW. Punk apparently has a lot of heat on him now after his comments.
They went on to note that the Bucks and Omega were meant to be part of the media fray, but an “adjustment” was made. They also report that although they were aware of a possible job, the talent they were in contact with felt like it was all real and not part of an elaborate job.
A few talents learned that some really big names were pissed off and threatening to leave because of it.
Obviously, at this point we must be aware of a possible job. https://t.co/VkVled1jmM
