• CM Punk Has Backstage Heat With AEW Wrestlers
As we all know by now, AEW World Champion CM Punk went off-script on this week’s episode of Dynamite and took a shot at Hangman Page.
Punk did this because he feels Page went into business for himself during a promo before their Double Or Nothing match, so him taking shots at him during this week’s episode was a “receipt”.
Fightful Select reported:
“From Punk’s end of things, the Hangman promo had alluded to Punk’s issues with Colt Cabana, and happened during a week where Punk wasn’t at the show, while Punk’s shot at Hangman happened with Hangman present.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, Punk now has heat with AEW wrestlers because Hangman is well-liked backstage.
