YIKES

What could have Tony realistically done to gain control of this situation?
In hindsight, it’s looking more and more like Punk used and abused the AEW locker room to regain street credibility after his UFC Endeavor.
SAD state of affairs.

    >this interview is over. thank you cm punk, i'll take it from here
    >1 on 1 with punk like a man explaining that disparaging comments like that will not be tolerated and it's his final warning
    literally nothing more than this

      Dude Punk is trained in BJJ, he would have maimed Tony if he even dared to cut him off.

        No he isn't. A blue belt doesn't mean shit.

    should have never gotten that far. he should have fined or suspended punk the first time he went off script and called out hangman to bury him when he wasn't supposed to.

      There's stuff he could've done before that, but I think it's pretty tough to do anything once Punk gets going because by the time you realize "jesus christ, he's burying my entire fricking locker room", pretty much the only thing you can do is rip the mic out of his hands and that's not guaranteed to go any better than just letting him go.

      Pretty much just this. Both Page and Punk went into business for themselves on the other on his TV. He should've punished them for it.

      ….does your little scenario included punishing hangman for going off script before Punk even talks his shit in response?
      mind you; one of these men is a certified MEGA Star draw and the other is an indy darling that hasn’t proven his even a certified midcard act

        page did it to his face to promote a match. punk waited until he already won the belt and the title was on him to go out there and bury him when he wasn't going to be wrestling him again or having any further matches with him to continue the program. completely different situations and punk is a homosexual little effeminate b***h trying to play catty mind games and when hangman just ignored him completely he started spiraling and had that giant meltdown after the PPV with mox because of it.

          was that before or after Punk soloed Page's friends Kenny and the young bucks in a shoot?

            it's well documented that Punk shoot kicked the shit out of Kenny and both bucks singlehandedly while he was injured. why didn't hangman take up for his buddies?

      The entire situation was Tony’s fault, he took Cabana off of AEW and while no one gives a shit about Colt, he let the rumors run rampant that it was Punks fault

        It's not like Cabana was a regular featured wrestler on Dynamite at the time. The roster was getting better and Cabana fell out of the bottom because he's old and not very good, I thought that whole thing where people were trying to pin that on Punk was TOTALLY overblown.

          Those rumors were what led to Hangman shooting on air, so no they weren’t overblown

            I am counting Hangman shooting as part of the overblown nature of it. That was a completely unreasonable thing for Hangman to do given the circumstances.

          It's the problem with a best friend's style boss. They are always two faced so when talking to employees because they just want to be liked.

    this is a dumb thread, there's no reason to revisit this incident. TK has bigger issues (like turning a profit)

    Not hire Punk. Not give Punk a rocket push. Not do everything Punk wanted. Not give Punk free reign. It was a situation of Tony's own making because he put his entire company in the hands of a mentally ill unreliable untrustworthy fraud who didn't give a shit about AEW.

    I would have interrupted as soon as I heard everything going south with punk talking about Scotty Goldman and try to veer back into the title win.
    Honestly nothing could’ve possibly been done to stop Punk. He knew he was injured at that point and went ham. I don’t think there’s anything I could’ve said that wouldn’t make things worse without outright kicking him off the stage. He tarnished his own title win. That’s what he was supposed to promo about

    Take the mic from Punk and thank him for his time to hopefully dismiss him
    Yeah it would be awkward but him running down your evps and company while you sat there next to him like a dummy was even worse

      >It would have been akward
      It would have looked like a worked shoot as opposed to a full shoot where the boss just meekly makes spergy onion faces

    It's easy to criticize this in hindsight, but when it was happening EVERYONE in the thread thought it was setting up an angle.

    AEW died shortly after. We will all look back and argue about it.

    Should have never brought Punk in at all if we want to be real about this.
