The relationship between CM Punk and Hangman Adam Page seemingly remains broken with little desire for it to be mended.
The pair had initially got on fine when Punk signed with AEW, and the star’s relationship with Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks was also positive. However, that quickly turned sour when Punk and Page began working together on-screen. During one now infamous promo, Punk said Page had gone off script to insult him, insinuating that he got Colt Cabana fired.
Punk has denied this accusation multiple times, including in a new interview with Marc Raimondi of ESPN. During the conversation the two-time AEW World Champion questioned whether Page had tried to hurt him deliberately during their clash at Double or Nothing 2022, adding that “ain’t sh*t been done” about what happened.
“And I proceed to have what I think is a garbage match because I’m trying to protect myself on stuff instead of actually just working and trying to put on the best performance I can,” Punk said. “I’m keeping an eye out. He chopped me in the mouth one time, and I’m just like, ‘OK, did you do that on purpose?’ You chip my tooth, and I’m like, ‘All right, should I give him a receipt?’ It changes the dynamic. It poisoned everything for me, and it made it all really, really ugly, and that was what set all of this off, and here we are over a year later and ain’t s— been done about it.”
CM Punk Set For AEW Return
Adam Page later became one of CM Punk’s targets at the now infamous post-All Out media scrum which was ultimately the former WWE star’s most recent action for the company. However, after recovering from a torn triceps, Punk will be back in action on the debut episode of Collision on June 17th.
On the show from Chicago, Punk will team with FTR to take on Samoa Joe, Jay White, and Juice Robinson.
