The Elite recently made their return to AEW TV at the Full Gear pay-per-view, and it seemed that they were ready to put the drama regarding their situation with CM Punk to rest, but apparently that wasn’t the case.
Recently on Dynamite, The Elite referenced CM Punk with Kenny Omega hitting the GTS, and Matt Jackson botching the Buckshot Lariat which seemed to be a nod to Punk botching the move himself at Double or Nothing back in May.
Booker T recently addressed the references on his Hall of Fame podcast, and he made it clear that he thinks The Elite’s behavior on screen is childish.
“I’m perplexed on that situation right there just because I don’t think [there] was anything tasteful about it,” Booker said to Brad Gilmore on his “Hall Of Fame” podcast. “I don’t think rehashing what happened a couple of months ago as opposed to letting it go away is making anything better as far as that company goes and if Tony Khan knew about it and signed off on it and they know CM Punk isn’t coming back, they probably going to be thinking about moving their headquarters.”
“I just think it’s childish stuff,” Booker said. “I’ve had beef with guys in the business before. We handle it, we squash it, we move on and normally, that’s the way it used to be, but now it’s different. And now it’s different because now nobody is getting their asses whooped. No real consequences, no real repercussions, no real men running around. That’s got a lot to do with it. There’s no locker room etiquette, you know what I mean?”
