CM Punk Rips Adam Page, The Elite & Cabana Causing A Brawl
During the post-media scrum for All Out, things got real intense. Then, with Tony Khan by his side, Punk ripped apart the likes of Colt Cabana, “Hangman” Adam Page, and The Elite.
Punk and Cabana had a falling out in court with WWE over comments made on a podcast. WWE lost, but the friendship between the wrestlers turned sour.
“I haven’t had anything to do with Scott Colton for a decade, probably didn’t want anything to do with him for even longer than that,” said Punk. “It’s f—ing unfortunate that I have to come up here and speak on this one on my time, and this is a f—ing business.”
CM Punk Rips Colt Cabana
“Why I’m a grown ass adult man and I decide not to be friends with somebody is nobody else’s f—ing business, but my friends if I fall backwards will catch me. Scott Colton, I believe, never would have.”
“My problem was I wanted to bring a guy to the top that did not want to see me at the top. You can call it jealousy, you can call it envy, whatever the f— it is.”
“A relationship with Scott Colton ended long before I paid all of his bills. I have every receipt. I have every invoice and every email.”
“An email where he said, and I quote, ‘I agree to go our separate ways. I will get my own lawyer, you do not have to pay anymore.’ That’s an email I have.”
Punk continued how Cabana shares a bank account with his mother, hence why the email did not go public. Then, Cabana asked Punk to stop.
“I haven’t been friends with this guy since late 2013/2014. We have irresponsible people who call themselves EVPs who couldn’t manage a Target.”
“And they spread lies and bulls—. They say that I got him fired when I want f— all to do with him.”
Punk said he wants nothing to do with Cabana. Also, He seemed to indicate some fans were wrong taking Cabana’s side.
CM Punk Rips Hangman Page
The tirade was not over yet, as Punk switched focus to “Hangman” Adam Page.
“But, what did I ever do in this world to deserve an empty-headed dumb f— like Hangman Adam Page to go out on national television and go into business for himself,” said Punk. “For what? What did I ever do? Didn’t do a goddamn thing.”
The AEW World Champion noted they are far from apologies and would not lower himself to Page’s level.
He noted how Page “jeopardized this company’s first million-dollar house.”
There was talk that Punk would not lose to Page because of a promo cut on him. Then, Punk went after the EVPs even further.

Remember, The Young Bucks and other talent went to bat for Cabana to stay in AEW.
“I’ll tell you what I am upset about it. If you’re an EVP you don’t try to belittle your top babyface to try to get your niche audience that’s on the internet to hate him for some made-up bulls— rumor,” said Punk.
“Really pissed me off. Stepping on your own d—.
CM Punk Rips The Elite Causing A Brawl
Now, The Elite never made it to the media scrum. Omega and The Young Bucks apparently threatened to leave after Punk’s comments.
On the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said things starting getting physical backstage. We are not sure, but it sounds like Punk and The Elite got into a scuffle
No word on how bad the fight was. So, Tony Khan needs to make drastic changes.
Truthfully, it feels like AEW is falling apart.
