CM Punk sure does have some things he’d like to get off his chest and his feelings about Hangman Page is reportedly one of them.
An upcoming ESPN interview with CM Punk is set to release tomorrow and it’s been given a lot of attention despite not one word of actually being consumed by the public eye. Fightful Select has been on the beat as rumors began to leak out about what the conversation all entails. The inital report indicated that Punk airs some sobering thoughts regarding a potential match with KENTA at Forbidden Door and also made mention that The Elite get brought up too.
An updated version of that report indicates that CM Punk has some words regarding one specific Elite member in Hangman Page. The former AEW World Champion is reportedly brought up in a manner that was not confusing in a work-shoot perspective. According to Fightful, Punk’s words about Page were clearly intentional.
The History Between Hangman Page & CM Punk
Hangman Page played a primary role in CM Punk’s infamous media scrum monologue following AEW All Out in September. Punk took exception that Page was unwilling to take advice from veteran wrestlers. Not only that, but Punk expressed his displeasure when Page went off script during a “Dynamite” promo in an effort to disaprage Punk from a locker room perspective. The two eventually clashed in the ring at Double Or Nothing 2022 that had Punk come out victorious before soon breaking his foot afterwards. Punk is set to make his return to AEW programming this Saturday on “AEW Collision” but that won’t be before fans potentially witness some drama unfold with the release of the aforementioned ESPN interview.
