Punk, unprompted, brought up the topic of Colt Cabana to begin his portion of the All Out media scrum. Rumors circulated that Punk's attitude towards his former friend may have led to Cabana nearly being cut from AEW.
Punk spoke about the real-life issues between the two and reiterated he had no care in the world about Cabana. He then directed his rage toward AEW EVPs Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks.
“It’s 2022, I haven’t been friends with this guy since at least 2014/late-2013, and the fact that I have to sit up here because we have irresponsible people who call themselves EVPs, and couldn’t f*****g manage a Target, and they spread lies and b******t and put into a media that I got somebody fired when I have f**k all to do with him, want nothing to do with him, do not care where he works, where he doesn’t work, where he eats, where he sleeps. And the fact that I have to get up here and do this in 2022 is f*****g embarrassing," Punk said.
