AEW star who used to be a part of WWE in his prime age, CM Punk uploaded an Instagram story in which he said that Ex-WWE Star Chris Jerico and Sports Journalist Dave Maltzer are liars. He accused the two faces of the Wrestling World via an Instagram story which is now deleted. The message was the response to the claims that Punk refused to lose against Jon Moxley in the episode of AEW’s Dynamite on August 24th, 2022.
Back in June, Punk broke his foot in a match against Jon and ended up losing the title to him but later at AEW’s All Out Punk won the championship again in 2022 in a rematch against him. Later that night, Punk got involved in a backstage fight with The Elite, which became the reason why he was absent from AEW.
First, let us look at what Dave Meltzer said about CM Punk which angers him so much. Meltzer said, “Because Punk agreed to it, then AEW got a legal letter saying he wasn’t down with it and wasn’t doing it and they didn’t know if he’d come until Tony put his foot down. I can say many nice things about him, and you can argue his position on Moxley was correct, but you can’t argue he willingly did what he was asked in that scenario.”

Now to that, our straight-edge superstar responded with a witty reply through an Instagram story which eventually got deleted by him after a while. In that response, he said that he wasn’t cleared when he is going to wrestle. He was supposed to wrestle at the pay-per-view.
He also said that the idea was a shitty one and sucked but that what’s the boss wanted, he can’t argue no more. He asked Tony if it was what he wanted? and he said yes so he also agreed, “He’s the boss so I said okay but I’d need to be cleared first.“
Then he targeted Meltzer and Jericho by labeling them as liars. He said, “Dave Meltzer is a liar. Jericho is a liar and a stooge.” He said his health is more important to him than anything and he is never going to put the company above his health, at least from now on he will never.
It was believed that Jericho was the source of information or can say informer of Journalist Dave Meltzer and this information was given to him by Jericho and that’s why Punk included him in his now-deleted story.
