• Reason Behind CM Punk Going Off-Script On This Week’s AEW Dynamite
On this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, AEW World Champion CM Punk had a heated war of words with Interim AEW World Champion Jon Moxley, where they brawled as well.
However, before Punk addressed Moxley, he addressed “Hangman” Adam Page, the man he defeated to become champion a few months back.
Punk said he wants to give Hangman a rematch, but he didn’t come out and this led to Punk calling him a coward by saying that’s “coward sh*t” (which was a dig at Page’s “Cowboy Sh*t” catchphrase).
The whole thing with Hangman was also called “less important” by Punk.
This wasn’t planned and Punk went off-script.
According to Fightful Select, Punk taking a shot at Hangman was a “receipt” for a promo that Page cut on him during their feud, where Punk believes Hangman went into business for himself:
“Punk defeated Hangman Page at AEW Double or Nothing earlier this year before being forced away from the ring for several months.
Before that, however, there was word that Punk and Hangman Page didn’t see eye-to-eye on some promo material that emerged on an episode of Dynamite that built their match.
Fightful has been told that it was to the point that CM Punk met with AEW higher ups about the context of Hangman Page’s promo. Voices of Wrestling had noted that they’d heard that Punk had told others after the meeting in May, that he wouldn’t lose to Hangman Page.
The belief among several on the roster we spoke to was that Punk believed Hangman went into business for himself leading into their Double or Nothing match, and that Punk may have seen the August 17 promo as a ‘receipt’.
It’s important to note that was locker room speculation as opposed to Punk telling anyone that directly.
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.”
