• “They do not even know who they are trying to get over” – Jim Cornette On CM Punk vs. Matt Sydal
On last week’s episode of AEW Rampage, CM Punk defeated Matt Sydal (fka Evan Bourne in WWE).
Old School Legend Jim Cornette isn’t happy with Punk’s booking and said the following about this match:
“I could see CM Punk wrestle on television, but I’m not sure if I ever wanted to beat the doors down to see Punk wrestle Matt Sydal. They had a good match, but it wasn’t only competitive, but Sydal was ahead!
At one point, I thought maybe Matt Sydal could pull this off, which is the wrong thought to have at this stage of the game when you have got a big attraction.
There were a couple of spots I liked. They both fought on the top rope, and both punched each other before taking a double bump to the floor at the same time.
But, as I said, finally, at one point, people were chanting ‘GTS, GTS’. And then Punk finally hit the Go To Sleep suddenly for the win.
They do not even know who they are trying to get over or what.”
