Bobby Fish On AEW Media Scrum: Triple H Or Vince McMahon Might Have Folded CM Punk ‘Like A Wet Nap’

Bobby Fish gives AEW president Tony Khan some credit for his behavior during the media scrum after AEW All Out, though he thinks his former bosses at WWE would have acted differently.

The unforgettable scrum kicked off with CM Punk, who won the AEW World Championship at the end of the pay-per-view, opening up about his relationship (or lack thereof) with Colt Cabana. He He then took shots at Hangman Page and AEW EVPs Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Khan was sitting next to Punk, and while he initially tried to speak up, the AEW president otherwise remained mostly silent while the champion delivered his heated message.

In an interview with Joey G of Wrestling Headlines, Fish commented on the scrum and noted that Khan should have reacted differently, but that might not be his personality. The veteran also shared his belief that former WWE Chairman Vince McMahon or WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H would have “potentially folded [Punk] like a wet nap.”

“I do want to extend some grace to Tony, in that regard,” Fish said. “Just because I’ve been there. To be caught in that position, like he, he definitely should have reacted differently. And Hunter or Vince McMahon would have potentially folded Phil like a wet nap in that moment, which is probably the right reaction, but in Tony’s defense, like, you know, that might just not be his like personality, really.

“So here he is in this moment, and he’s just hitched the car of his company to the back of this guy, given him not only a lot of money, but a lot of trust, etc, etc. And you’re like, you’re kind of sh——all over that right next to me. Just a sucky position for everyone.”

Fish recently left AEW, and he commented on his departure. He also challenged Punk to a fight.
