CM Punk defeated Jon Moxley in the main event of the latest AEW pay-per-view, All Out. When Punk faced the press, CM Punk went on a fiery rant about Colt Cabana, Hangman Page and the EVPs of the company in an expletive-laden press conference.
The lines between reality and kayfabe could not be more blurred with fans split about the rant being a work or a shoot. Steven Muehlhausen’s tweet on the matter certainly points towards the latter, as he reported that his sources told him about a physical altercation between the Young Bucks and the newly crowned world champion with Punk throwing punches at one of the Bucks. You can find the tweet below.
In a rare case, the media scrum managed to become the biggest talking point from Sunday night. The consequences and repercussions could be huge but if it is a work and this gets woven into a storyline, it will be one of the most interesting stories told in modern professional wrestling history.
