Tony Khan’s CM Punk Claims Met With “Skepticism” In AEW

CM Punk Tony Khan

A new report has suggested that there is still “skepticism” in AEW regarding Tony Khan’s claims surrounding CM Punk and Colt Cabana.

The situation regarding CM Punk and Colt Cabana blew up following the All Out pay-per-view in September with Punk taking issue with media assertions that he had been responsible for his former friend Colt Cabana’s diminished role in the company since Punk debuted.

At the Full Gear media scrum, Tony Khan discussed those rumours and sought to put an end to them, denying once again that the two things were in any way related.

Now Dave Meltzer, speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, has reported that not everybody in AEW is happy to fully accept that as the whole truth:

“The whole Cabana thing, I keep getting stuff from talents in AEW about this. Ever since Saturday I’ve gotten a lot and, put it this way, there is a lot of talent that is very convinced of one thing. Obviously CM Punk is – and he’s always been – very adamant that he had nothing to do with it.”

“Tony said that (Punk) had nothing to do with it, this was back in August, so that story is not going to change publicly one way or the other. But I’m just saying that the skepticism, and it’s vehement from a lot of people, as far as the skepticism of that story.”

“So it’s not like that thing has been settled in the eyes of, I can’t say all the talent, but a lot of the talent. Even today I just got something that was just like, ‘Can’t you just see? Isn’t it obvious?’ It’s not like they’re speculating, they believe that they know the story. That’s basically that, I’m sure that one will never go away.”
