Bobby Fish says CM Punk was a “c*nt” after their match in AEW

Sep 10, 2022 - by James Walsh

Former AEW star Bobby Fish issued a “formal invitation” to CM Punk for a competitive fight.

While speaking to NBC Sports Boston’s Steve Fall, Fish had some follow-up comments about Punk…

“CM Punk is not a martial artist. He went on pay-per-view twice and showed the world he is not a martial artist. He is a pro wrestler, so go out, tackle, drop down, leapfrog, all that stuff, all good. In that lane, like, dare I say, he’s got talent. But when it comes to martial arts, you’re insulting the audience’s intelligence because we’re supposed to be creating an atmosphere where you can suspend your disbelief. It’s honestly insulting for you as one of my coworkers or peers. As a martial artist, you’re asking me to go out and sell and put over your bunk ass martial arts, which it’s insulting to the audience and it’s insulting to me. At the same time, I’m working for AEW. They’re the ones paying my check. You asked me to go out and put my shoulders down for Phil Brooks. I go out and I do it.”

“Interestingly enough, there was a little bit of whatever in the match that he and I had, and then, you know, Phil, after the match, was a c*nt. Frankly, as a martial artist, I went out and I laid my shoulders down for you. You should be grateful that I did because on national TV, if I decided that I wanted to fu**ing Haku your ass, I could have because you’re that little bit of a threat in my world. I’m not Jon Jones or Anderson Silva, but like, I’ve been doing martial arts since I was young and I can handle myself enough to where I will fold you like a wet nap, Phil Brooks. So for you to be c*nt afterwards because of a mistake that you made, it doesn’t it doesn’t wear well, not to mention the move that he finished me with, it’s not even his finish. It was Kenta’s. Phil, you took a man’s finishing move, which anybody who knows pro wrestling knows like, that’s kind of fu**ed up, and you weren’t even decent enough to change the name. So yeah, I mean, it goes back. It wasn’t a challenge. It was an invitation like Phil, if you want to throw hands with The Young Bucks, who are on a short list of people that are my friends when it comes to this business, I’m happy to oblige. I wasn’t there, so I don’t know what exactly went on. But like, if you’re feeling froggy, man, come on. Let’s jump together.”

    dye your hair again, Bobby!! You make Tim Storm look like a newborn!

    What a mark for himself. The extent of Goldberg’s MMA experience, virtually, is that he shadow boxes in his garage, which Heyman referenced in a promo; yet, he destroyed Lesnar, a former UFC champ, anyway. … Bobby Fish is mad because he’s not what’s best for business. 😂

    Not a Punk fan, but LETS BE HONEST. Maybe Fish could take him, maybe he can’t. What is a fact is that Punk trained at the highest level for MMA. Yes he lost in UFC twice. But that doesn’t discount his training against people who haven’t. Against Mickey Gall, CM Punk was the loser. Against CM Punk, most other wrestlers would be the loser.

  4. Joseph says:

    They both have training. MMA for Punk and kickboxing for Fish. Their training isn’t really important. What’s important is how they can handle themselves in a fight. You can have the best training in the world but if you’re not a good fighter, no amount of training will fix that. I’ve never seen Fish in a kickboxing match so I can’t judge him. Punk however has had a few fights and there are a number of people who say he simply can’t fight.

  5. Captain Ass says:

    Let’s bottom line it. Punk IS a c**t. He’s well known for being a miserable, moody human being who throws a tantrum when he doesn’t get his way or when someone doesn’t kiss his ass. That’s why he stuck up for the cry baby team of Sasha and Naomi. 3 peas in a pod. He should go back home and stay there. Hopefully, he’s not as miserable to his wife and dog.

    I’d recommend listening to the entire video, he speaks more on his experience with martial arts. He’s been training since 8 (think that’s what he said). Fish said there was issues with Punk after their match last year. Punk did something called an “iggy” which is changing the match on the fly or something? That was why Fish kicked out right after the 3 count. Punk still won the match so I really don’t see what the problem is.

    Found this:
    the iggy is a squeeze of the palm to signal a pre-arranged message, usually to counter, but also take it home, etc.
    Maybe Fish was upset because Punk ended the match early and Fish didn’t get all his stuff in.
