Rumor killer regarding CM Punk’s match against Adam Page at AEW Double or Nothing 2022

Earlier this week, a claim circulated around the internet in regards to CM Punk’s match against “Hangman” Adam Page at the 2022 AEW Double or Nothing PPV. Ryan Frederick of wrote the following via a Discord server that was shared on various outlets including Reddit

“Hangman was going to beat Punk at DoN until the worker’s rights promo, Punk got it changed and Tony [Khan] literally sat on the porch of Punk’s house in LA booking out the summer with Hangman not anywhere close to being in the mix because Punk wasn’t going to work with him. No way they were going back to him at any point.”

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer shot down the rumor…

“As far as rumor corrections, the story going around that Punk was originally going to lose to Adam Page at last year’s Double or Nothing but pressured Tony Khan to change the finish is not true. Punk was always winning that match.”
