When Clash At The Castle went off the air, I posted my Running Diary and started checking around on social media for instant reactions. I have specific people I’ll look at, as well as specific show reviews on certain sites. Opinions that I trust. That kind of thing. After CatC, there were tons of strong opinions about Drew McIntyre failing to defeat Roman Reigns. Those opinions ranged from one extreme of “I’m done with this company because the push Roman is getting is killing the whole company” to “Roman’s so good that he shouldn’t be losing to anyone unless it’s in the WrestleMania main event” and just about everywhere in between.
I started writing an early rough draft of a McIntyre column that focused on my opinion of him losing to Roman Reigns in Cardiff. When I finished my Running Diary for NXT Worlds Collide, I went back to the McIntyre column and added some more to it. It was starting to come along nicely, but I didn’t have a lot of time between Worlds Collide and AEW All Out, so I put it on the back burner again for my third Running Diary of the weekend.
When All Out went off the air, I posted my Running Diary and was just about to go back to my Drew McIntyre column again. Sure, there were things at Worlds Collide and All Out that I felt were worth writing about, but that McIntyre piece was important. I was starting to fire it back up again, but then… it happened.
Like Paul Wall, CM Punk had the internet going nuts.
At the All Out post-show media scrum, Punk sat down right next to Tony Khan and proceeded to go absolutely, positively scorched earth on Colt Cabana, “Hangman” Adam Page, Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, MJF, and anybody else he could think of at the time. It was 22-ish minutes of some of the most scathing verbal attacks you’ll ever see in this great sport we love so much.
He started things off by trashing Scott Colton (Colt Cabana’s real name, of course) after being asked a question about him. We heard many details about the end of Punk and Colt’s real-life friendship, some of which we heard before (stuff about their lawsuits and legal fees) and some of which we hadn’t (his claim that Colt shares a bank account with his mother).
Punk then seamlessly transitions into talking about certain “irresponsible people who call themselves ‘EVP’s’ and couldn’t fucking manage a Target,” implying that those EVP’s are the ones who have been leaking info to the wrestling media that Punk is the one responsible for Cabana nearly getting fired.
Then, in the same rant, he refers to Adam Page as an “empty headed fucking dumb fuck” that “went into business for himself” and he wonders what he ever did in life to deserve that type of treatment from Page. As Tony Khan, who looks like he wants to curl up into a ball and die, starts to speak about how he could’ve handled things differently, Punk cuts him off and again puts the blame on the EVP’s who “should’ve fucking known better” than to do what they did. Going back to Page, Punk says that “Hangman” is someone who “hasn’t done a damn thing in this business” and who “jeopardizes the first million-dollar house that this company has ever drawn, off of my back” and says that what Page did was a disgrace not only to the company, but to the industry.
Next, a question was asked about why MJF was brought back now. Tony Khan starts talking about how he felt this was the best time to do it for the fans, and Punk cuts TK off and says that he (Khan) “wants me to work with pricks constantly” and that causes Khan to make a face as if he had just took a nice steamy shit in his boxers.
Then, completely unprovoked and out of nowhere, Punk goes back to talking about Colt Cabana, saying that there were numerous different offers on the table to prevent a lawsuit from happening, all of which Colt declined. Punk again brings up the fact that Colt shares a bank account with his mother, saying that it shows you what kind of “character” Colt has, before saying that he (Punk) “works with children” in AEW.
Punk then goes back to talking about the EVP’s of the company, and how they went to their “niche audience that’s on the internet” to try and get those fans to hate him, who happens to be the company’s top babyface, over a “made up bullshit rumor.” He says they’re “stepping on your own dick” as they try to make money and sell tickets for the company, then saying that “these stupid guys think they’re in Reseda,” which is a mention of the former home of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, a company that the current AEW EVP’s have been a big deal at through the years.
Punk is then asked a question about the younger talent in AEW and how they can utilize the legends and veterans in the locker room like William Regal or Jim Ross when it comes to advice and how to improve their positioning in the business. This allows Punk to bash Page again, calling him an “empty headed idiot who has never done anything in the business” and mentioning that Page has done public interviews where he said he “doesn’t really take advice.” Punk says that’s “stupid” and rhetorically asks Page who the fuck he thinks he is for thinking that way. He tells Page to “fucking go fuck yourself” and dares Page to say something like that to the face of someone like Terry Funk, before saying that Page needs to “fucking grow up.”
When asked a question about MJF, Punk says that he’s tired of wrestling “these pricks” and “these kids that think they know everything,” before sending a message to “Max” and “anyone else that doesn’t want to be here,” saying that the grass isn’t greener on the other side, as the saying goes, but in fact, it’s greener where you decide to water it.
Next, Punk is asked about comments that he made after the AEW debuts of Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole, when he said that all of their debuts had the “feeling of Bash At The Beach,” referencing Hulk Hogan’s infamous heel turn in 1996 that set the wheels in motion for the nWo to become the hottest thing in pro wrestling and help WCW turn the tide and take the lead in the Monday Night War. Punk acts as if he’s embarrassed that he said such a thing, then mentions that AEW still has an “uphill battle in a lot of respects” because “there’s just so much drama and turmoil going on.”
To close things out, he talked about Cabana once again, saying that he has “eaten shit” on the subject for too long without defending himself. He says that he’s sad to even have to say Colt’s name because Colt “doesn’t fucking deserve it,” and finishes it off by saying that the two people in the world who have made the most money off of CM Punk are Vince McMahon and Scott Colton.
Look… I don’t care if you’ve seen the media scrum 100 times by now, or if reading my words are the first you’ve heard of it. Either way, that is A LOT to unpack. In all my years of watching wrestling, I’ve never seen anything like this. The level of anger, frustration, incredulousness, and sadness in his voice was crystal clear from the beginning.
First things first, what the hell are we supposed to take away from what Punk said and did? If you’re reading these words right now and feel this is a work, either on its own or part of a bigger plan, I need to know why you feel that way. Is it just because you’ve been jaded by the world of pro wrestling and your automatic response to anything, no matter what, is to assume that it’s bullshit? I’ve watched the video of the scrum several times now… I simply don’t think Punk and TK have the acting chops to pull something like that off.
I say that, but only with the assumption it is a complete work. Could Punk have “gone into business for himself” and used an opportunity in a proposed storyline to completely pour his heart out, unbeknownst to Tony Khan, Adam Page, Colt Cabana, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, and everybody else? Sure.
Here’s the thing that I wonder… what purpose does this serve AEW if it’s a work in any way, shape, or form? A work, according to the wonderful fact factory that is Wikipedia, is described as “anything planned to happen” or a “rationalized lie,” and if you switch the word to a verb, it means “to deceive or manipulate an audience in order to elicit a desired response.” What was the desired response to all this? It certainly wasn’t to get a sympathetic face reaction for Punk. Was it to help him turn heel? Based on a lot of the reactions on social media to this point, that would be working out pretty well, but why then? Why there? Why that way?
If you wanted to turn CM Punk heel, wouldn’t there be much more effective ways to do so? AEW’s pay-per-views in 2022 have averaged around 150,000 buys. So far, as of 2:00pm EST on Wednesday, September 7th, the official AEW YouTube video of the scrum has 639,000 views and counting. Dynamite has averaged approximately 962,000 viewers in 2022. Could the scrum video on YouTube reach the million-view mark? Possibly. Actually, at this point, it’s more of a probability. However, what should be more important to AEW? YouTube numbers or television numbers? Last I checked, it was reported that AEW was earning around $44 million annually with their current television deal, which is juuuuust a bit more than they’re earning from YouTube views. On top of that, they could be looking at a huge increase in earnings when a new television deal is agreed to next year. Wrestlenomics’ Brandon Thurston has said that a new deal for AEW could see them pulling in around $175 million annually if everything goes right for the company.
“Yeah, but it gets people talking! Look at you! You’re doing a column about what happened.”
Yes, I am doing a column about what happened. I’m also not crazy enough to think that what I’m writing right now is going to make up the minds of anybody reading this, causing them to tune in to watch Dynamite when they might not have done so otherwise. This goes back to what CM Punk said during the scrum about catering to the “niche audience” and how that can prevent the company from fully growing as much, and as quickly, as they can. There’s a reason that the company’s television viewership has damn near been the same week in and week out., month in and month out, year in and year out. Too much catering to that niche, hardcore group of a million or so viewers. They’re going to be there, anyway.
I just don’t see how this news has reached a new audience for the company. Who, out there, is hearing about this news and saying “I don’t watch AEW, but I have to tune in this week to see if CM Punk goes AWF on Colt Cabana and The Young Bucks” to themselves? Raise your hand if you’re a huge WWE mark but have decided that Dynamite is must-see TV this week to see if Adam Page gets to return fire in a scathing shoot promo of his own.
What about the potential for an all-out (pun intended) shoot fight that includes biting, a steel chair, a black eye, and multiple pull-apart brawls? Yes, the story of Punk’s scrum “pipe bombs” isn’t where this entire thing comes to an end. It was then reported that Punk left the scrum and was met by The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, where a fight would break out. As the story goes, Punk started it by throwing punches in the direction of Matt Jackson. At some point, Ace Steel became involved by throwing a chair at Nick Jackson, which would hit Nick in the eye. Steel would also pull Omega’s hair and go on to bite him. No word on the location of MJF, Adam Page, or Colt Cabana.
I will ask the same question I asked earlier. What purpose does this serve AEW if it’s a work in any way, shape, or form? Does anyone think we’re going to get a crossover event between AEW and some MMA company allowing Punk, Ace, and the Bucks to have some tag team shoot fight on Dynamite? This does nothing for anyone involved. It makes a group of men, ranging in age from 33 to 49 years old, look horrible. People keep throwing the word “buzz” around, saying that this is simply AEW’s way of continuing the buzz they’ve been getting. Pardon me…
What fucking “buzz” are we talking about?!?
I really like AEW and watch their product with great enthusiasm. However, I freely admit that there is no “buzz” with the company right now. The same television viewership, running the same cities and venues time and time again, and they’re well behind WWE in every measurable category when it comes to this “war” between the two companies. I’m really entertained by AEW’s product, but they aren’t growing anywhere near the pace that they could, or should, be right now. They’re obviously not on the verge of going out of business, as they’re making good money (at least as far as the gross is concerned), but they’re not exactly on the verge of world dominance, either. Cut it out, folks.
Everything I’ve said so far isn’t my way of saying this nonsense is going to hurt the company. It might, sure, but I doubt it. I do know a couple people who have said they’re sick of CM Punk’s shit and are refusing to watch any more AEW programming until Punk is no longer employed, but I don’t think there’s going to be anywhere near enough people with that line of thinking to make any real difference in the viewership numbers. When this week’s numbers for Dynamite come out, you can pretty much guarantee that it will be in the vicinity of 975,000 people.
My biggest concern coming out of this whole thing is Tony Khan. He literally sat there, two feet away from Punk, and did nothing while Punk went into a filthy tirade that bashed the EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENTS of the company, a former World Champion, and some of the more popular members of the roster. Can you imagine a WWE press conference where, say, Randy Orton launched himself into an R-rated tirade and called Edge an “empty headed fucking dumb fuck” and then started shitting all over the Vice Presidents of the company for how poor a job they’re doing? Even if Vince was a huge fan of Orton, that press conference would’ve been put to an end right then and there, as soon as Orton got started. Tony Khan is that fucking parent that doesn’t want to be a parent to his kids, and instead, would much rather be their friend. What happens in those instances? I know you’ve seen it happen a bunch in your life. Those kids end up in prison, dead at an early age, or simply down the wrong path. Then, those parents throw their hands in the air and wonder why their kids ended up as complete failures. I know that TK is a big fan of Punk, and is also very appreciative that Punk would come out of retirement to wrestle for AEW. He SHOULD be appreciative and thankful that Punk wanted to wrestle for AEW. Punk returning to the ring was something I never thought I would see. However, that doesn’t mean you just sit there with the constipation face while Punk does and says whatever he wants. Stand the fuck up for yourself, your employees, and your company.
So, what happens to everyone involved?
Early rumors say that Ace Steel is probably going to be out of a job, if he isn’t already at that point. If Eddie Kingston can get a multi-week suspension for trying to pie-face Sammy Guevara, I think Ace Steel throwing a chair at Nick Jackson warrants him being fired. Steel might end up being like Triple H after the “Curtain Call” at Madison Square Garden, where nobody else could be punished for one reason or another, so Trips had to take the fall. No matter what options Tony Khan could and should choose, I just can’t see him doing something like firing Punk, Omega, The Young Bucks, Adam Page, or anybody else.
I had to mention the others that were in the fight because that wasn’t solely on Punk. They just heard Punk go off on them at the scrum, so they already knew how pissed he was. Confronting him IMMEDIATELY after he left the scrum was just the spark Punk needed to be sent over the edge. Yeah, yeah, yeah… I know… they’re MANLY MEN and they have to defend their honor and MANLY MANLINESS when someone says something negative about them. That’s fine and all, but it could’ve been done at a later time and date.
Do I think Punk should be fired? He almost has to be, doesn’t he? Do I think Punk WILL be fired? No. If you did what he did at 99.38% of the jobs in the world, you would be fired before you even finished ranting. Yes, it’s going to create a nightmare for the on-screen product since Punk just won the World Title, but that on-screen nightmare is nothing compared to the behind-the-scenes nightmare he has created. At the very least, a suspension is warranted. The thing with a suspension is that the title needs to come off of him, too. Just fast-track the title shot that MJF won at All Out, have MJF win the belt in whatever way you deem necessary, and send Punk home for a while. Again, if Eddie Kingston got sent home for multiple weeks, you have to send Punk home for a considerably longer amount of time. I’ve seen people say his suspension should be anywhere from a month to a year. A year seems crazy to me. You might as well just fire him at that point.
The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega shouldn’t get away clean, either. They played a role in escalating the entire thing, and a suspension for all three men would be fair. If you suspend them, though, please no more interim champions. The idea is dumb to begin with, and using it so often in a short amount of time only makes it worse. They can be gone for a couple weeks and return to defend their titles without having to crown interim Trios Champions.
Tony Khan, as I said before, needs to stop being a fucking fanboy and put his foot down. There are so many pieces there for AEW to be a huge factor in the wrestling business for years and years to come, but TK doesn’t seem to want to get out of his own way. Maybe… just maybe… this incident will be just what he needed to figure out what he’s been doing wrong.
This whole thing has been an absolute mess. It has become one of the biggest wrestling news stories of the year, with the potential to get much, much bigger. If Punk does end up getting fired, it would be one of the biggest one-year falls from grace in a long, long, LONG time. He signed with AEW a year ago and was literally viewed as a savior for the company. Someone capable of bringing in more excitement, more money, more sold tickets, and more television viewers than the company has ever had. If this is the end, he delivered on the excitement right off the bat, but it’s arguable just how much he helped in the other areas. For him to possibly be gone already… there really are no words.
“The greatest thing the devil ever did was making people believe he didn’t exist. I am the devil himself.” – CM Punk
P.S. It shouldn’t be ignored that Punk has been publicly called out and trashed by Bobby Fish for several weeks, and he said nothing about it. As soon as Fish leaves AEW, Punk decides he wants to be a tough guy?
Weekly Power Rankings
- Carmelo Hayes vs Ricochet: Two of the most entertaining and athletic wrestlers in the world today doing what they do best. So much fun. As always, I don’t need to talk about these matches much in my Power Rankings because I already discussed them in my Running Diaries.
- “Hangman” Adam Page, John Silver & Alex Reynolds vs Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks: Going into the show, I don’t think there were many people who gave Page and his Dark Order buddies a chance of winning this match, but those guys are so good at what they do that they had people buying in during the match itself. Omega and the Bucks are fantastic choices for the first Trios Champions in company history, though.
- Bron Breakker vs Tyler Bate: Bron Breakker is one of the most physically impressive specimens that has ever come through NXT. Tyler Bate doesn’t necessarily pass the “eyeball test” right off the bat, but he is, pound-for-pound, one of the strongest men in NXT history. This was the battle it needed to be, with both men getting to look like a million bucks with very bright futures.
- Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre: Even in a loss, McIntyre still looks like one of the biggest stars in all of wrestling. He has clearly been positioned at a level or two below Reigns, though. Then again, everyone in WWE has been positioned below Reigns over the last two years, so it’s not that big of a deal. The addition of Solo Sikoa to The Bloodline is a big move, too.
- Gunther vs Sheamus: Ev-er-y bit the physical fight that it needed to be. I’m sure these two were in a world of pain the next morning.
- Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland vs The Acclaimed: When The Acclaimed were still heels, they were picking up very organic face reactions, and you could just tell they could be successful faces. Since turning face, they have been just that… successful. They have become more and more over, and their reaction at All Out was amazing. They had the fans eating out of the palms of their hands, to the point where Twitter was damn near overrun by people calling for Tony Khan to listen to the fans and call a mid-match audible that would crown new champions. The roof would have blown off of the building if a title switch happened. It’s only a matter of time before Caster and Bowens are the AEW Tag Team Champions.
- Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks vs Will Ospreay & Aussie Open: I can’t help but feel a little disappointed in how Will Ospreay was used during his time in AEW. His win/loss record is 2-3 there. For comparison, you need to go back to his last 21 matches in RevPro to find his last three losses, stretching back to August 2020. You need to go back to his last 11 matches in New Japan to find his last three losses. Of his five matches in AEW, only one of them was a singles bout, where he really could’ve had the chance to shine. He just didn’t come across as a big enough deal. I’m pretty sure some people had heard a lot about this Will Ospreay guy, and then finally got a chance to see him when he came to AEW, and they were probably somewhat disappointed and underwhelmed. Maybe he’ll get a chance to come back one day and do something bigger and better.
- MJF: Well… he’s back. Is he back permanently? No idea. Will he remain a heel? Hard to tell, because fans are clearly wanting to cheer for him, even doing so as he was revealed as CM Punk’s opponent in CM Punk’s hometown where CM Punk is a GOD.
- Matt Riddle vs Seth Rollins: This is a feud that you could easily see as being over a World Title. You know, if Roman Reigns was ever going to lose again. Still fun to watch them, though, especially with the real-life tension between the two of them.
- Jon Moxley vs CM Punk: Not a Match Of The Year classic, but it didn’t need to be. It told the story it was supposed to, and the crowd ate it all up, even if there were a lot more Moxley fans in attendance than anybody expected.
- Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods vs The Viking Raiders: This is the 28th time that the company has tried to make The Viking Raiders a “thing” on the main roster, but they’ve beaten Kofi and Woods twice over the last five weeks, so that has to count for something. This “Viking Rules” match was a lot of fun. The Raiders deserve more. Do they deserve to beat The Usos and end their great title reign? We’ll have to see about that, but they can be an interesting threat to the champions, without a doubt.
- The Creed Brothers vs Gallus vs Pretty Deadly vs Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen: Hectic. Very, very hectic. There was so much going on here. Eight men in the match. Elimination rules. Two teams had a male with them at ringside, while the other teams had a female with them at ringside. Brawls galore. It was a good match, but I don’t think I agree with the winners of the match. I would’ve went with Gallus as the match winners if the Damon Kemp heel turn needed to happen.
- Braun Strowman: Like many of you, I’ve made jokes about Braun’s post-WWE career, with Control Your Narrative being the center of most of the jokes. Even with that said, I have no problems with him returning to WWE. He’s a lot better, and more entertaining, than the “monsters” like Omos on the roster, and the live crowds continue to love him. I have to assume that he’s going to be a challenger for Roman Reigns before long, and perhaps starting as soon as this week on Smackdown. That’s fine. WWE needs a “new” challenger to bridge Roman from now until WrestleMania season when Cody Rhodes and maybe The Rock return. I had to say “new” like that because they’ve definitely feuded before, even in the earliest stages of Roman’s current title reign, but it will probably be treated as Braun being a different man than he was back then.
- Mandy Rose vs Meiko Satomura vs Blair Davenport: The match was smartly put together. Satomura was able to handle the heavy lifting, and she did really well in that role. Davenport had her chances to shine and look like a legitimate threat to win. Mandy Rose, to her credit, continues to improve in the ring, showing that she deserves the opportunities that she is being given. She is currently in the middle of the third-longest NXT Women’s Title reign of all-time, and if she can hold the title for 49 more days (as of the day this column is posted), she will reach the one-year point as champion.
- Bryan Danielson vs Chris Jericho: Yes, I have a Mandy Rose match rated higher than a Bryan Danielson vs Chris Jericho match. This one was still pretty good, but I was pretty disappointed, as a whole. The crowd wasn’t anywhere near as excited for this as I thought they would be, and it seemed like Jericho was gassed relatively early on and things dragged a bit after that. It happens.
- Camera Angle of Dexter Lumis: The Miz climbing out of the steel cage on Raw, looking down in shock, and seeing Dexter Lumis popping out from underneath the ring? *Chef’s kiss* It was such a fresh camera angle, and was almost drone-like as it zoomed and turned. Such a simple thing, but it looked so, so cool.
- Kevin Owens vs Austin Theory: The more I watch Theory wrestle, the more I think a lot of people are still confusing their dislike for his character for a dislike of his in-ring skills. It seems like he’s having a really good match with someone every week. I will agree that he cannot, under any circumstances, become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion with this current character, even with a Money In The Bank cash-in on a fallen champion. Some rehabilitation work needs to be done to get him to that point, but he is a picture perfect midcard championship contender right now.
- Edge & Rey Mysterio vs Finn Balor & Damian Priest: A really solid match, but it will be forgotten as time goes by because it was outshined by the post-match heel turn of Dominik Mysterio. That turn has been coming for what seems like forever. At the time, it looked like he was going to be a solo act as a heel, because he did his thing and left on his own instead of with The Judgment Day. I think that would’ve been a mistake, so I’m glad that he ended up with Balor, Priest, and Rhea Ripley on Raw. Those three are more than capable of helping to hide any negatives in his arsenal, while he is allowed to accentuate the positives.
- Toni Storm: There was a lot of drama about why Thunder Rosa wasn’t involved here, and the match itself only turned out to be decent, but this was still the biggest win Toni Storm has seen in a long time. With the new interim AEW Women’s Champion not being one of the two woman that is reported to hate Rosa’s guts, it will be interesting to see how quickly she returns to the ring.
- Bron Breakker & Tyler Bate vs The Coffey Brothers: If you’re hoping for a long and fruitful run for Gallus in NXT 2.0, I don’t know if you’re going to be happy. They’re going to have good matches, lose a lot of said matches, and move on to NXT Europe when it launches in 2023. Just my guess, anyway.
- Butch vs Ludwig Kaiser: It seems like we’re getting more and more Pete Dunne out of Butch every week. This was a lovely amuse-bouche for the Gunther vs Sheamus main course two days later.
- Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta vs “Hangman” Adam Page, John Silver & Alex Reynolds: I like the line that this match walked between comedy match and fast-paced, hard-hitting action. You don’t see a ton of that in mainstream wrestling. You’ll get one or the other, but that’s it.
- Meiko Satomura vs Roxanne Perez: Satomura wrestled a match for WCW in 1996, a full five years before Perez was even born. That means nothing. Just a fun stat to share.
- Damon Kemp’s Promo: He’s alone (for now), and he’s feuding with a stable of four, but his first post-turn promo was good. He had legitimate reasons to be frustrated with his spot in The Diamond Mine and how he was treated. A lot of the best heels and villains throughout history are the ones who don’t see themselves as heels or villains because they feel they’re right. That’s where Kemp finds himself right now.
- W Morrissey: Initially, I had his AEW return ranked a little higher. His physical transformation from his final WWE days and the early stages of his independent run continues to be amazing, and he really fills a need on the AEW roster right now. However, it remains to be seen how much he’ll be able to accomplish as a member of Stokely Hathaway’s Land Of Misfit Toys stable, and if he’ll be anything more than a tall, muscular stooge for MJF.
