• Chris Jericho Reacts To CM Punk Calling Him A “Liar & Stooge”
CM Punk posted the following on his Instagram story today, where he addressed his injury from last year and his feud with Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship:
“SIGH. I wasn’t cleared to come back to wrestle yet. Then plan was to wrestle at the PPV. I sat and listened to Moxley’s Rocky 3 idea. I explained how I’d never seen a Rocky movie.
I thought the idea sucked but if the boss wanted to do it whatever. He said he wouldn’t lose to me. I’d never experienced someone refusing to lose to me. I just laughed.
I asked Tony if this was what he wanted. He said yes. He’s the boss so I said okay but I’d need to be cleared first.
They kept saying it could just be a squash so I didn’t need to be cleared. I scoffed at that. My health is more important.
Dave Meltzer is a liar. Jericho is a liar and a stooge. There were plans but plans always change, but I’ll never put a company above my health ever again.”
He later deleted this, but below is a screenshot:
Jericho posted a GIF of Broken Matt Hardy saying ‘Delete’ on his Instagram story in response to what Punk wrote:
