CM Punk and Eddie Kingston’s reason for the heat revealed
A few weeks ago on AEW Rampage, Punk and Kingston were involved in a huge promo battle on the show. During the exchange, Punk subtly mentioned the issues between him and Kingston, which have now been confirmed.
It has been noted that the two AEW stars had a clash in the locker room during the early stages of their careers back in IWA Mid South. The incident seemingly took place 15 or so years ago and this anonymous wrestler was around at the time.
The anonymous wrestler claimed that he/she can fully confirm Kingston’s promo on CM Punk from Rampage. The individual was sitting in the locker room when Punk called Kingston and his partner at the time, Blackjack Marciano, “fat, lazy and unsafe”:
“I can fully vouch for Eddie’s promo on Punk the other night. I was sitting right there in an IWA Mid South locker room when Punk called Eddie and his partner at the time, Blackjack Marciano, fat, lazy and unsafe. Marciano had just accidentally injured Delirious in a previous match and Punk was hot about it, so just buried them nonstop. I could see why Eddie hung onto that hate and anger for so long,” the anonymous wrestler was quoted as saying.
Kingston and Punk are set to lock horns at the upcoming AEW Full Gear pay-per-view on Saturday, November 13.
