Tony Khan has come out and said he wasn't going to compete against the NFL, which is why they dont run mondays or thursdays.

Shibita/Ospreay and Swerve/Takeshita were some hell of a good matches

The matches I thought would be good were good. The rest of the show was skippable I thought.

Anthony Henry got rehired.

LOL

TK has no backbone whatsoever. Dude clearly saw all the hate for the firing and immediately reversed course

If its a troll, and it could be since its the Bucks doing it on screen, its a stupid one.

If its completely legit, its really really fucking stupid.

There are zero positive outcomes here for AEW

It was provoked by Punk and I'm curious to see the footage.
The dirtsheet mentioning Tony by name makes me think it's legit but it's pro wrestling so I guess you never know

Doesn't matter if it was provoked or not. There's no benefit here. The time to release the footage was after the incident when you fired him, not months and months later because your owner got his feelings hurt from a Punk interview. The best course of action for AEW is to move on. He's not with your company any more. Focus on your own product

I actually think they should have taken the high road on it at the time but if Punk is going to shit talk the owner and the company they have a right to defend themselves. It's really going to depend on the footage itself and if there's a compelling follow up. Personally I'm curious

He really didn't even talk shit. He mostly said what a lot of people have said, even those still with the company; that Tony Khan is too nice and more like a friend than being an actual boss.

Who in the company has said that publicly?
I think Punk's a great promo and is great for wrestling in general. I'm a fan of him as a performer. He clearly doesn't handle his exits from companies diplomatically. Cody's much better at those.

To me, either way it's coming across as CM Punk living rent free in Tony Khan's head.

Do you recall the last CM Punk shoot interview lead to Punk in a court room, ruining friendships, costing him millions of dollars in legal fees.

AEW is either trolling for a quick ratings bump or showing the truth of what happened. Not sure how Punk is living in TKs head for this
