CM Punk Rips Colt Cabana And Hangman Page – After AEW All Out went off the air, new World Champion CM Punk joined Tony Khan for a press conference. Right off the bat, the champ was asked about Colt Cabana, known as Scott Colton in real life and Punk got heated. There have been rumors that Punk wanted Colt gone after he was removed from the Dark Order without explanation.
The AEW Champion said he hasn’t had anything to do with Scott in over a decade and is annoyed that he has to speak about the matter on his time.
This is a fcking business. I’m a grown-ass adult man and why I decide to not be friends with somebody is nobody’s fcking business. But my friends, if I fall backwards, will catch me. Scott Colton, I felt, never would have. My problem was that I wanted to bring a guy to the top that did not want to see me at the top.
The AEW Champion continued:
“You can call it jealousy, you can call it envy. Whatever the f*ck it is. My relationship with Scott Colton ended long before I paid all of his bills. I have every receipt. I have every invoice. I have every email. I have an email where he says, and I quote “I agree to go our own separate ways, I will get my own lawyer and you do not have to pay anymore”.
That is an email that I have and the only reason the public did not see is because when I finally had to countersue him through discovery, we discovered that he shared a bank account with his mother. That’s a fact. And as soon as we discovered that fact and we subpoenaed old Marsha, he sent the email “oh can we please drop all of this?”.
CM Punk then turned his attention to the EVPs at AEW (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks) and claimed that they couldn’t manage a Target department store:
Now, it is 2022. I haven’t been friends with this guy since at least 2014 or 13, and the fact that I have to sit up here because we have irresponsible people that call themselves EVPs and couldn’t fcking manage a Target, and they spread lies, and bullsht, and put into the media that I got somebody fired, when I have f*ck all to do with him. I want nothing to do with him.
“I do not care where he works, where he doesn’t work, where he eats, or where he sleeps. And the fact that I have to get up here and do this in 2022 is fcking embarrassing. If y’all are at fault, fck you. If not, I apologize”.
The AEW Champion then brought up Hangman Page once again. Hangman mentioned Punk doing the opposite for “workers rights” in a promo ahead of their title match at Double or Nothing. CM Punk gave Hangman a “receipt” during an episode of Dynamite in Hangman’s home state of West Virginia. Punk called Hangman out and referred to him as a coward during the unscripted moment.
But what did I ever do in this world to deserve an empty-headed fcking dumb fck like Hangman Adam Page to go out on national television, and f*cking go into business for himself? For what? What did I do, Dave (Meltzer)? What did I ever do? I didn’t do a goddamn thing.
