AEW Dynamite returned to Chicago and CM Punk hit the ring to a monstrous standing ovation from fans in his hometown. However, he was quickly interrupted by Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) much to the dismay of the crowds in the Wintrust Arena. But what followed was probably the best 20 minutes of promotion, and just might be the best segment in all of pro wrestling this year.
Shots were taken as MJF delved into the pipebomb promo and considered punk a “crack addict” despite being straight edge. “It doesn’t feel too good to be interrupted, does it?” Frankly, you really hurt me last week. I held out my hand like a gentleman. It was almost as bad as the time you stopped, took your ball, and went home.
“Do you know what was great?” The pipe bomb. It was your best time. Except every MJF moment is the best MJF moment. Because unlike you, I’m not a one-ride pony. Don’t twist it. I respect you. I even respect the fact that you’re straight edge, but how does someone who is straight edge look like a meth addict?
Not the type to be intimidated, Punk retaliated by saying that MJF was a complete disappointment.
“I’m in your head. It probably has something to do with you having a poster of me on your wall, ”Punk said of his disappointment with MJF. “I silenced the great MJF without saying a word.” He continued, “You think you are someone when in reality it’s just a less famous Miz.”
MJF then made another reference to Cena when he said that Punk was always second best, whether for “You Can’t See Me man” or the “King of Kings”, also a reference to Triple H.
Punk then asked MJF if he thought he was # 1 in AEW. Punk referred to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon when he said the only way MJF could be No.1 is for Tony Khan to have a daughter and MJF to marry her.
