Following the August 12th 2023 edition of AEW Collision, CM Punk a cut a promo for the live crowd. CM Punk ended up taking a shot at “Hangman” Adam Page…
“Earlier today, I went to a local supermarket and I figured out what they call him Hangman. It’s because the pegs in the toy aisle are full of Hangman action figures because no one wants to buy them. He’s a peg warmer unlike me who moves merchandise and pops ratings and sells toys. Everyone in AEW says ‘I’m the heart, I’m the soul, I’m the spirit.’ Well’s that’s objective.”
“I think this is what we call a heel turn?” (quotes courtesy of F4WOnline.com)
Earlier this year, Punk addressed his 2022 AEW Double or Nothing match against Page. According to the article, Punk was “infuriated” about shoot comments that Page made in a pre-match promo. Punk explained that he was concerned Page might intentionally attempt to hurt him during their match.
