CM Punk was fired from All Elite Wrestling (AEW) this past weekend. Tony Khan, the company’s president, claimed that his actions left him with no other choice but to terminate his contract. Previously, reports mentioned that Punk got into a backstage scuffle with Jack Perry that involved him lunging at his own boss. Surprisingly, Ryback addressed the situation on his live stream, The Ryback Show.

The 41-year-old revealed he had witnessed the Second City Saint bully guys before. Furthermore, he expressed his disappointment with CM Punk for not learning to control himself despite his age. “I know he has the ability to alter things and word things in a way to make himself sound like a victim. He’s very vindictive when he gets on a mood, then he will try to ruin someone if he gets in a specific mood,” claimed Ryback.

Moreover, he termed the former WWE Champion a “manipulative” person backstage. According to him, Punk used his power to bully wrestlers in the locker room who could “kick his a**”. It was rumored that the self-proclaimed “Best In The World” will soon release a response from his own side that has the potential to be explosive.
