Kurt Angle Calls CM Punk’s AEW All Out Rant “Inexcusable”

Kurt Angle on the mic

Kurt Angle has given his opinion on CM Punk’s infamous press conference with the wrestling legend calling Punk’s actions “inexcusable” while adding that it wasn’t professional.

CM Punk won the AEW World Title for the second time in his career at AEW All Out on September 4th. However, Punk beating Jon Moxley has been forgotten for the most part due to Punk’s crazy rant at the post-show press conference where he complained about Colt Cabana, “Hangman” Adam Page and some of AEW’s Executive Vice Presidents. What Punk said upset Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) so much that they confronted Punk in the locker room. That led to a fight due to the bad blood that existed between Punk and others in AEW.

Since All Out, the aforementioned names have been suspended by AEW while Punk might have his contract bought out and he may never return to AEW or any wrestling company. As for Punk’s friend Ace Steel, he was fired by AEW following his actions in the fight which included throwing a chair at Nick Jackson and biting Kenny Omega’s arm.

Kurt Angle has seen a lot in pro wrestling and he chimed with his thought on the AEW All Out fight during a recent episode of his Kurt Angle Show podcast. Angle was asked how former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon would have reacted to it.

“Vince would’ve lost his s**t.”

Angle admitted that while he didn’t know Punk that well, he found his actions to be inexcusable.

“I don’t know CM Punk enough to say what kind of person he is. I’d be willing to just say he’s a good guy, but what he did at that press conference was inexcusable.”

The WWE and Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer added that while he can understand why Punk said what he said, it doesn’t mean it was the professional thing to do.

“It’s tough because I understand why he was upset… but the way he acted at the press conference, I don’t think was very professional.”

In an update on his health, the retired Olympic Gold Medalist said he’s doing well physically following double knee injury earlier this year.
