WWE Hall of Famer Eric Bischoff has explained what he found to be the most unforgivable actions after AEW All Out, and it had nothing to do with the physical fight.
Despite CM Punk winning the AEW World Championship for the second time in front of his home crowd, AEW All Out feels secondary to the backstage chaos that followed it.
At the post-show media scrum, Punk launched into a tirade against AEW EVPs, Hangman Adam Page, and others while Tony Khan could only watch on. His comments sparked a brawl backstage which led to several suspensions as well as the AEW World and Trios Championships being vacated.
Speaking on his 83 Weeks podcast, Eric Bischoff explained what he saw as the most unforgivable bit of the whole dramatic event:
“The worst of what happened in that media circus was the level to which [Punk] … went to humiliate Tony Khan. He eviscerated him. First, he cut his balls off, made him look like a complete tool, and then when that wasn’t enough, and he had more time to just ramble on, I think he humiliated Tony Khan. Now, I’ve said some things about Tony … that aren’t flattering, but I’m not taking millions of dollars from him while I’m doing it!”
“I wouldn’t give two sh*ts about the fight. [The] fight’s not a big deal, but I think the way [Punk] humiliated Tony, that was unforgivable. And I never had anything like that happen to me.”
Eric Bischoff also recently explained what made him sour on AEW President Tony Khan after previously appearing on AEW television.
