CM Punk might have had second thoughts after trashing Adam Page.
CM Punk was in action on Collision on Saturday night as the man who calls himself the “Real World Champion” teamed with the actual AEW Tag Team Champions FTR to challenge The House of Black for the AEW Trios Title. CMFTR were unable to win more gold due in no small part to Samoa Joe but Punk did succeed in stirring up a hornet’s nest.
Punk – whose issues with The Elite are well known – took to the microphone after Collision was off the air and tore into Hangman Adam Page. Punk called Page a “peg-hanger” claiming that the Hangman’s merch was left hanging in stores while he’s the one who sells merch and tickets for the company.
Reports then surfaced suggesting that Adam Page was brought to Greensboro to record an interview but was then told to keep away from the arena where Collision was taking place. The Elite and CM Punk have, for the most part, been kept on separate shows since Punk came back to AEW on the debut edition of Collision.
What is the latest on CM Punk’s outburst?
Haus of Wrestling has now issued the latest report on the incident saying that there has been no word that Punk was responsible for Adam Page, or indeed Matt Hardy, who was also implicated in reports of being told to stay away from the arena, being told to stay away from the Greensboro Coliseum.
It was also noted that CM Punk’s post-Collision comments about Page “did not come across how he would have wanted.” The comments were heavily booed in the arena before Punk told the crowd he loved them to finish the show. Punk is also said to have “felt bad” about his remarks afterward.
Interestingly, it is believed that despite this latest incident CM Punk is “keeping the door open” to burying the hatchet with The Elite.
