    Phil is an emotional fake tough guy manchild loser, but the whole thing is really Tony's fault. It started when Hangman believed Tony exiled Colt Cabana to appease Punk WHICH HE DID. I actually believe Punk when he says he had nothing to do with it.

    If Tony had just pulled them aside and set the record straight, it could have been nipped in the bud. Partly because Hangman wasn't gonna back down from an "outsider" and partly because Phil is paranoid as frick. But he allowed the whole thing to fester between his golden idol and his world champion and it finally had to come to blows and to where lawyers had to get involved.

      They fact that Cabana was immediately replaced as a producer by Ace Steel means Tony already had Steel as a replacement ready to go. Who got Tony to hire Steel? I wonder. Punk has just enough plausible deniability because he never said quote "fire Cabana" or something like that. But he absolutely got Cabana let go

    Tony invested in CM Punk for an entire calendar year and had him go over much of the rising roster. He took Punk all the way to the World Championship and Punk KWAB’d himself immediately 3 days afterwards.
    And THEN Tony kept the belt officially on Punk despite injury and did that stupid interim shit which unintentionally also shat on the Women’s World title when he had to do the same for Thunder Rosa’s bullshit to not look sexist.

    And then Tony had Punk win the belt AGAIN in his hometown at All Out. Yeah, the unification squash was stupid, but Tony still put the World Title on Punk AGAIN and Punk injured himself immediately AGAIN.

    And then after WINNING the World title at AEW’s biggest show of the year, Punk went on a completely uninvited 20 minute promo shitting on the company and its execs instead of putting over his own World Title win.
    Fast forward and he’s being booked as the “Real” World Champion and is made to be the face of a show made entirely FOR HIM that is supposed to rival Dynamite.

    And then, at one of the largest wrestling events in history, and AEW’s single biggest show in history, he flips shit over fricking Jungle Shitter and fights backstage over things said in a PRESHOW match which unintentionally breaks the entire landscape of the professional wrestling world.
    Punk literally broke pro wrestling.

      This sums it up. The woes AEW suffers today are directly on Punk and Tony trying to appease him.

      1. Punk should have never been allowed to challenge for the title, especially the second time

      2. Punk's bullshit eroded opinion of AEW and turned many against it

      The reality is Tony fricked himself over the minute he brought him in 2021. AEW was riding high, putting their best product, everything was in place. Then Punk came in, fricked the ME scene, did some other bullshit and AEW cratered for 2 years.

      And the thing with Punk is that keeping him was useless. He's never gonna be fit to wrestle so it doesn't really matter.

            So it's literally young enough to be RAW's child? Very interesting indeed.

            Jungle boy wrestling for NJPW hurts AEW. You can't do the "wrestler thinks he is too good for the company" storyline unless the wrestler is an actual star and the company is actually successful enough to make it look like a work. Right now, it just makes JB look like a whiny b***h and AEW look a shitty company to work for

            >it just makes JB look like a whiny b***h

            Yeah that's the whole point, good job figuring that one out piggy! And without MAGGLE fauxshouting his expodumps too! Keep up cleverness like this and...oh I'm afraid Smackdown will remain CANCELLED!

            Did you miss my point about how it's a moronic angle that doesn't help anyone...which is pretty much how Tony books everyone

            Perry has already wrestled more times in 2024 than Phil is ever going to KEK

            >Phil was FIRED over 6 months ago.
            Yep and their average ratings has gone down by 150k in that time. Oops

            >attempting to frame this as some protest boycott for Phil or whatever the frick

            Delusional.

            Every fricking time KEK! Just why are the Philistines ALL sers?

            They sold TK a bad bill of goods though. Everything they promised failed.

            What did they promise and how did it fail? Be specific.

            AEW was doing fine without him before he got there and it’s not like punk was skyrocketing ratings while he was there. Now he’s gone and the company needed literal years to recover from that walking clusterfrick.
            I still cannot believe there are any Punk fans left after the Rumble. Just lel.

    I get the impression that AEW would have been better suited for Punk had things not spiraled out of control so WWE, while not ideal, at least has people he can work with (but he'd ultimately be better off in a well-run AEW).

    Not really. Tony had his chance at the scrum. After he failed that test Punk began engineering his escape plan.

      Wrong. Phil and Tony had conversations. Same with Tony and the Elite. It's just the lies were expose in real time on camera.

      Wish we coulda seen Punk UFC beat their asses.

    Tony hates the decisions he has made.
    He had the #1 biggest and most controversial name in the business of pro wrestling working for him, and he couldn't stop the pet shop boys from sucking each other's wieners enough to prevent them from working Punk out of the company.
    Tony never had control, but this situation is where he realised that he'll never have control over these guys.
    He wants to be their friend, and he isn't their friend. Punk's probably the only guy with big enough balls to tell Tony that truth.

    it was officially over for Tony and aew the second Punk walked out at survivor series. the only star they've ever had any their lineal world champion showing up back in WWE showed everyone how much of a minor league fed aew really is, even for people who hadn't ever watched it. Tony is seriously frickin dumb for picking a bunch of indy nobodies over the only proven draw he's ever had.

      Tony knows he fricked up (now).

      But how could he have known The Elite was the wrong choice?
