CM Punk has a message for people behind the scenes at AEW who don’t like him

CM Punk’s first comments as AEW World Champion during the media scrum after double or nothing were very much in agreement with the gracious and grateful personality we have seen from him since his return to The first dance last August.

He spoke repeatedly about the company’s team approach and praised the role of others in raising his profile and helping him succeed as he has been: “I like to say, if you want go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, you go together. He talked about the responsibility he feels as a champion and the face of the company, and how his connection to the public makes him comfortable playing a good guy – something he couldn’t. do throughout his Ring of Honor and WWE titles.

But a major theme of most of his AEW feuds has been that Punk isn’t exactly a good guy. The man he took the belt from double or nothing, Hangman Page explicitly made its program to protect the promotion of punk. He alluded to problems in the locker room and Punk’s outward presentation not matching wrestlers’ experiences with him backstage.

Asked how he fits in with the rest of the roster, the new champion said:

“I have become so wise in my old age that I will do my best to be as diplomatic as possible with this response. If there are people behind the scenes who don’t like me, it’s a minority. And if someone says nobody wants me here or nobody likes me, I like to say nobody likes me and nobody wants me here Run with that.

Will the story of Punk’s reign be one of the best in the world finally getting rid of his egomania and proving the likes of Page and Eddie Kingston wrong? Or will the former Punk heel finally show his face in AEW? The presser gave us proof of both.

It’s going to be an interesting summer (of Punk III).
