CM Punk has been a very hot topic in the world of professional wrestling over the last week or so. The former AEW World Champion has been at the center of a lot of controversy and former AEW star Bobby Fish recently said that Punk “was a c**t” after their match on Dynamite in October of 2021.
At the end of the match it appeared that Bobby Fish attempted to kick out of the Go To Sleep at the three count and Fightful Select is reporting that was the catalyst for Fish and Punk’s bad relationship. Several people who were backstage during the match were said to have been confused by the kick out attempt, and wondered why he would do that as it wasn’t likely to go over well.
One veteran noted that it took a long time for Punk to get the pin as he was actively selling for Bobby Fish. After the match there was little communication between CM Punk and Bobby Fish.
Last week on AEW Dynamite, Tony Khan kicked off the show and announced that the AEW World Championship had been vacated. A tournament is currently underway to crown a new champion with the finals set to take place at Grand Slam on September 21.
