CM Punk says AEW were mad at him for showing up backstage at Raw in May 2023

Appearing on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, CM Punk said that AEW management were pissed at him for showing up unannounced backstage before a taping of Monday Night Raw in Chicago last May.

Punk explained that he was going back home to Chicago from Tampa following a CFFC show and on the plane he met several WWE Superstars who were traveling for Raw. Punk said that he got a text from Bayley after landing saying that Liv Morgan, who was on the same flight, described him as being super nice and Bayley invited him to come over to say hello.

Punk joked that it was all Bayley’s fault and when he showed up he met a few other Superstars such as The Miz, Bobby Lashley, and Baron Corbin, before running into Triple H. A few minutes later, Punk said he was thrown out of the arena on the orders of Vince McMahon who did not like that he was there while he was still under an AEW contract.

Helwani asked what did AEW think about it and Punk said that they used the word “betrayed.” He said that AEW allows other people on the roster to appear on other shows and here he was just being backstage and not appearing anywhere on TV but were still mad about it.

Punk said that if they wanted to be mad about it, then they could be mad about it and shrugged it off.
