The Termination of CM Punk by The Coward Tony Khan

Tony Khan is an incompetent manager. How on earth he didn't meet Jungle Boy at the curtain for his unprofessional nonsense is beyond me. He allowed the inmates to run the asylum (pardon the cliche) and Punk, who by all accounts just wanted to do good business has effectively been bullied by a bunch of dweebs right in front of everybody. Bullying in the workplace is often done by a pack of insufferable little cry babies. Constant attempt of undermining and whispering campaigns - its full blown coward behaviour and these feckless little tools involved did it constantly. And got beat up for it. Because Tony couldn't manage it. 

Embarrassing. 

Spoken like someone who definitely doesn't have his own issues with hostility, toxic masculinity, scapegoating, and alienating coworkers.

Bodyslam.net says that at Revolution 2022 when William Regal debuted, Punk refused to shake his hand backstage and called him - to his face - “a stooge for Triple H”.

Yikes. 

I don’t believe like 95 percent of wrestling newz but I believe any petty, narcissistic insane stuff that comes out about Punk. 

For a guy all about respecting the business and acting tough, how did he escape someone not planting him on his ass? Aside from “Many wrestlers the past bunch of years decided that attempting to resolve problems somewhat professionally and then griping about things when things don’t go their way — aka what the rest of mankind does — was a lot more productive than swinging a fist at a cornball like Jungle Boy.”

Guys! We found Punk’s Socko account!

So anyway, Cornette is slagging off Tony Khan for the “I was in fear for my life” thing. He should be supportive of it. If your whole deal is “Old School, Protect the Business, Kayfabe lives!”, the idea that a non-wrestler thinks that being physically attacked by a wrestler carries a high risk of serious (or even fatal) injury should be a dream come true for you.

Oddballs like you is the reason I haven't posted in 6 years.

I was saying to somebody just the other day actually, that anybody who used the term "toxic masculinity" probably doesn't have a pot to piss in in life. And is more than a little creepy. I'm sure you're the exception though my friend.

Before anyone asks, I just want it on the record that I am NOT AEW attorney Christopher Peck.

Yep. I sure do. Other than scapegoating. I'm not sure when I've done that. At least not unironically. And, if you're keeping score at home, any hostility has been with people who ended up getting run off. Dolph, my other Little Friend, etc. Feel free to be next. 

As an aside, I hear the Jim Cornette subreddit has been a pretty fun place to be. The "cm punk is blameless" talking point is going over pretty great there. Maybe peddle that nonsense there instead of here.

Edge is good but he's not a draw, and he's not a needle mover. He also turns 50 years old next month, and his career is on borrowed time. You can't realistically build a TV show around him.

Sting is 65. Billy Gunn is 60. Jeff Jarrett is 56. Jericho is 53. I'm sure Copeland could work a handful of matches per year and still last 3 or 4 years

I feel like E&C vs. FTR would be a cool special attraction match, but I can't think of much he would do that interests me beyond that.

Ironically, if Punk were still there, that would be a great program because they mostly missed each other in WWE and they could each unleash their super burial promo instincts without hurting anyone else on the roster.

When a talent has problems with as many people as Punk has (seriously how many guys has he publicly beefed with, 10?) they're not worth keeping around no matter how talented. 

The classic "if you meet one asshole in a day ..." trope made flesh.

Matt, Nick, Page, Kenny, Colt, Brandon, Nemeth, Jungle Boy, TK, Fish, Jericho, Matt Hardy, Christopher Daniels, with assumed heat from Kingston, Britt Baker, and William Regal. 

And Seth Rollins and Hornswoggle and R-Truth and HHH and Ryback. AJ Styles, Booker T, The Miz. Corey Graves, Elijah Burke, Beth Phoenix. Some actual bad people like BJ Whitmer, Hulk Hogan, Mike Quackenbush, Teddy Hart.

The thing to keep in mind with Edge is he is ready for retirement. He mostly hasn't done it already likely because he wants to wrestle with Christian one more time and FTR at least once. I don't see him wanting to do more than a set of dates, especially if he can swing back to WWE for one last proper retirement match.

I'm sure there's going to be more fallout (specifically, Punk's response), but I'm glad it's over. 

This whole thing has been a black cloud and an albatross for more than a year. Even though Collision rocked and there's been good matches/shows, it's really taken a lot of the shine off of AEW for me. 

I'm ready to be fucking stoked again.

But how familiar with AEW is he? Because I could see him looking at the roster and thinking "Man I wouldn't mind working with Omega. That Hangman kid is pretty good too, we could probably tear it up." and so on. Him and Christian vs the Bucks, one more match with the Hardys, one more match with Jericho. Plus, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think he ever worked with Danielson or Moxley in WWE did he?

My point being, there's plenty of interesting things for him to do in AEW assuming he feels physically up to it.
