Recently we've been hearing reports that CM Punk isn't the most satisfied person within the ranks of All Elite Wrestling. It is unclear what is causing the reported issues as it seems the mixed messages center around a Hangman Page promo from earlier in the year and Colt Cabana being moved to ROH. Number one if Punk is offended by something Page said in a promo earlier in the year it's up to him to handle it backstage and in a professional manner not to be a petulant child and whine about it on camera. As World Champion Punk is suppose to be the leader of the roster and his actions last week don't display him as a leader.
As for his relationship with Colt playing a part in the tension within the AEW locker room again it's unclear what caused the tension all we know it's what's been told to us. Punk and Cabana's falling out was covered seven years ago when it was relevant. In my opinion, if Cabana being on ROH's roster would benefit ROH more then his presence in AEW then he belongs in ROH and those in AEW need to accept that. Punk's presence should have no bearing on Cabana's job or where he best fits the only thing that should matter is Cabana being placed in a spot that would benefit everyone involved.
Again there seems to be mixed messages coming out about the tension within the AEW to me it just seems like something that could've been avoided and should've been handled differently. On the other side it seems like it could be wrestling news sites raising the heat and making a lot out of nothing. Punk might be a major star for the company, but nothing gives him the right to make demands or decision with regards to who should be in AEW or not. To address the fact that all this is a work they can't keep doing that the MJF thing was believable but they never followed up on it and lost there chance to manufacture another shoot angle would just be desperate in my book.
To fully understand the situation though we need to wait until Dynamite this week as Moxley vs Punk is happening a lot sooner then most of us expected. If any of this is true then Punk should lose the spot and Mox should be given the mantle. Either way though we are in for a banger this week on Dynamite when we see the two World Champions collide.
