Dax Harwood believes anyone who has problems with CM Punk’s return should address the situation personally.

CM Punk’s AEW return is the talk of the wrestling world, and in his promo on the debut episode of Collision on June 17th, he wasted no time in taking some jabs at his public rivalry with The Young Bucks. His comments came after his much-discussed ESPN interview in which he called out Adam Page for “poisoning everything” during their AEW World Title feud and even wondered whether Page had stiffed him in the ring on purpose.

Dave Meltzer has gone on record saying he doesn’t believe it was the time to make such comments, and writing in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the journalist alluded to one top star being in a “bad mood” and believing the locker room tension could be likened to a “ticking time bomb.”

“Ratings were good and attendance was very good this week. But one top name noted to us that they went home after the show on Wednesday in a bad mood and even with the key people kept apart and not on the same shows, described the fear of this being a ticking time bomb that will not have a happy ending.”

In a now-deleted tweet, Punk’s longtime friend Dax Harwood took the star in question to task, wondering why the person couldn’t simply have a conversation rather than tell backstage drama to a journalist.

“This one will get some heat but f*ck it, it needs to be said. Whatever “top star” left the show in a bad mood because a certain individual was there; instead of running to Dave, why not just talk to the individual face to face. That’s how we used to do things back in the day.”

Harwood also rejected claims of division in the locker room, pointing to how well his young daughter Finley was treated during a recent visit.

“I can’t thank everyone in AEW enough for how well they treated Finley this week at Dynamite. You all made her feel so special. If there is a “divisiveness” that a certain individual is reporting, I didn’t see it AT ALL. Check the Collision locker room too. This is a family.”
