CM Punk: It’s one side of the story

CM Punk caused a lot of reactions last week after he challenged Hangam's Adam Page to a World Title match. Punk thinks Page acted cowardly after he didn't show up. Speaking to Sports Illustrated, CM Punk revealed that he was happy with AEW's treatment.

"Yes. You shouldn’t put too much stock in internet rumours. Twitter is not real life. Lie makes its way around the world twice before the truth puts his boots on or gets out of bed”. - he said, as quoted by CM Punk emphasized that rumors are an integral part of this sport.

“If I addressed every rumor, I’d be here all day,” he continued. “I love AEW. It’s not a competition of who loves it more or who’s the heart and soul, or who’s this and who’s that.

AEW allowed me a second chance to do what I do best, and that’s professionally wrestle”.

CM Punk on Conflict in AEW

There was a lot of talk about the conflict within AEW, but CM Punk had an answer to that as well: “It’s one side of the story,” Punk said.

“My locker room is never closed. It’s always open. Anybody who wants to DM [Dave] Meltzer some bulls— can come talk to me about it. It’s not macho, stupid bulls—. I’m an adult. Come talk with me”.

He also explained his reason for going off script when challenging Hangman. “That’s what I’m here to do, make people want to see what happens next,” CM Punk said. “I’m trying to sell tickets to the live events.

That goes back to me saying Twitter isn’t [the] real world. Twitter is a bunch of people that don’t really care about your opinion. They want to find like-minded opinions that share their worldview. I’m trying to tell stories, sell tickets, and get people to tune in on Dynamite”.
