CM Punk Calls Chris Jericho A Stooge And Liar, Trashes Jon Moxley
CM Punk appears to be on very bad terms with Chris Jericho.
Despite working together in the past, Chris Jericho doesn’t think very highly of CM Punk. In fact, some months ago, Jericho called CM Punk a “cancer” and Dave Meltzer suggested that Jericho was one of the influential power-brokers backstage in AEW that didn’t and doesn’t want Punk back following the events at All Out 2022.
Now, several months later, these tensions do not appear to have cooled, much less healed.
Earlier today, CM Punk wrote a story on his Instagram page that highlighted how Chris Jericho was both a liar and a stooge for causing friction during Punk’s rivalry with Jon Moxley over the AEW World Championship.
“SIGH. I wasn’t cleared to come back to wrestle yet. Then plan was to wrestle at the PPV. I sat and listened to Moxley’s Rocky III idea. I explained how I’d never seen a Rocky movie. I and thought the idea sucked but if the boss wanted to do it whatever.
He said he wouldn’t lose to me. I’d never experienced someone refusing to lose to me. I just laughed. I asked Tony [Khan] if this was what he wanted. He said yes. He’s the boss so I said okay but I’d need to be cleared first.
They kept saying it could just be a squash so I didn’t need to be cleared. I scoffed at that. My health is more important.
Dave Meltzer is a liar. [Chris] Jericho is a liar and a stooge. There were plans but plans always change but I’ll never put a company above my health ever again.”
This story has since been deleted by CM Punk. However, TJRWrestling’s John Canton tweeted out what Punk put on his Instagram story and you can see that below.
