After AEW Collision went off the air on Saturday night, CM Punk took multiple shots at “Hangman” Adam Page in front of the North Carolina crowd, which showed a lot of support for Page throughout the night, specially during Punk’s match.
Punk called Page a “Peg Warmer” and said that Page can’t move merchandise or pop ratings or sell toys like him.
“Earlier today I went to a local supermarket and I figured out why they call him Hangman. It’s because the pegs in the toy isle are full of Hangman action figures ’cause nobody wants to buy ’em. He’s a peg warmer unlike me, who moves merchandise and pops ratings and sells toys.”
Punk also said that he’s the heart and soul of All Elite Wrestling and the “real” World Champion of the promotion.

These comments were reportedly not planned.
F4WOnline reported in their daily update that Page was asked to be at Collision so he could do a pre-taped promo backstage to hype next Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite.
However, Page got to the arena and was then told to not attend the show. He was told that he would have to do his segment away from the building.
It was also noted that Punk and The Young Bucks have an agreement regarding not talking about each other in public, but that agreement doesn’t include Page.
