AEW has parted ways with a number of wrestlers this year and last month Bobby Fish’s contract will All Elite Wrestling expired. It was recently reported that the two sides entered negotiations for a new contract, but couldn’t come to terms when it came to the financials.
Since parting ways with the company Bobby Fish has challenged CM Punk to a fight, and he recently spoke to NBC Sports about his match with Punk on the October 27, 2021 episode of Dynamite.
Fish noted that he’s been doing martial arts since he was eight years old, and he said that it was insulting to put over Punk’s “bunk** martial arts” in the match. He then indicated that there were some issues between him and Punk once the match was finished.
“Phil, after the match, was a c**t. Frankly, as a martial artist, I went out and I laid my shoulders down for you. You should be grateful that I did because on national TV if I decided that I wanted to f**king Haku your ass, I could have because you’re that little bit of a threat in my world. I’m not Jon Jones, or Anderson Silva, but I’ve been doing martial arts since I was young and I can handle myself enough to where I will fold you like a wet nap, Phill Brooks. So, for you to be c**ty afterwards because of a mistake that you made, it just doesn’t wear well.”
The former AEW star then went on to criticize Punk for stealing KENTA’s finishing move when he said, “Not to mention, the move that he finished me with, is not even his finish. It was KENTA’s. You know, Phil, you took a man’s finishing move, which anybody who knows pro-wrestling knows that’s kind of f***ed up and you weren’t even decent enough to change the name.”
On Sunday during the All Out post-show media scrum CM Punk took shots at Colt Cabana, MJF and The Elite which later led to a backstage altercation involving Punk, Ace Steel and The Elite.
When Fish was asked about Punk’s comments at the scrum he said, “I think Phil kind of showed the world the scumbag he can be. Maybe he’s not that scumbag every day, but I guess we all got a little bit of scumbag in us and some of us do a better job at controlling it than others.”
