• “You wouldn’t want to work with him when he’s a penny stock” – WCW Veteran Bashes AEW’s Booking Of CM Punk
During a recent interview on the Keepin It 100 podcast, Old School WCW Veteran Disco Inferno took a shot at All Elite Wrestling’s booking of former WWE Superstar CM Punk.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I am just saying Kenny Omega should beat Adam Page, then call out CM Punk. Punk’s stock is dropping and you wouldn’t want to work with him when he’s a penny stock. You wanna work with him when his stocks are worth something.
I would absolutely have Punk versus Kenny Omega as the feud that starts immediately the night of going forward after he beats Adam Page if you want to heat up Punk. And if Punk just keeps on facing the rest of these guys, the numbers do not lie. Everybody is noticing this, the numbers stink, and then you guys are talking about the demos everything.
The ratings have gone, you are botching Punk. That is an absolute story that the wrestling media should be talking about, collectively right now, but they’re not. And I am like it is because they cover for AEW and their booking sometimes, we agree this has been lame. So, Eric [Bischoff] is absolutely right.”
Disco Inferno wrestled for World Championship Wrestling from 1995 until the company was sold to Vince McMahon in March 2001.
At one point, he was even a member of the nWo for a short period of time.
Some of the younger fans out there might remember him for his stints with Total Nonstop Action! (TNA) / iMPACT Wrestling.
