• Bobby Fish Explains Why He Kicked Out Of CM Punk’s GTS On AEW Dynamite
On the October 27, 2021 episode of AEW Dynamite, CM Punk defeated Bobby Fish in a singles match.
Fish recently talked about this match and said Punk was a c*nt after the match for his own mistake.
At the end of this match, Fish kicked out of the GTS, but the referee still counted to 3.
You can watch it below:
During an interview with WrestlingHeadlines, Fish explained why he kicked out of Punk’s finishing move:
“The match that I had with Punk, where things go wonky at the end of that match with the kick out on the GTS, which isn’t even his move.
That’s me giving into my desire to be a little bit petty in that regard. It’s KENTA’s move and you didn’t even have the decency to change the name.
Regardless, the confusion at the end of our match was the fact that he did what’s called ‘the office’ or an ‘iggy.’ This is some inside baseball stuff here. He did that before the three count was over.
Having been in the business for a long time, I recognize what that is and have done it myself to somebody to say, in our way, ‘whatever, good match.’ He did it before the three count was over. That’s also a way to alert your opponent that, ‘Hey, let’s change something.’
In that moment, I can liken it to what Tony Khan might have been feeling when he’s going off on the EVPs. You don’t know what to do. In that moment, I know for myself, I had to make a split-second decision, couldn’t weigh out this or that.
I had to kick out or not kick out and lose the moment forever. I kicked out. Being whatever it was.”
