Eric Bischoff, a WWE Hall of Famer, has been vocal in his criticism of the Jacksonville-based company since AEW’s establishment.
In recent weeks, there have been reports of internal conflicts and disagreements backstage at Tony Khan’s company involving CM Punk’s impact on Collision’s decision-making process. Some sources have mentioned clashes between Punk and other stars like Ryan Nemeth and Jack Perry.
During an appearance on the Locked & Loaded podcast, Bischoff shared his insights on the behind-the-scenes dynamics at AEW and placed the blame on Tony Kahn for allowing the situation to spiral out of control. The seasoned veteran expressed concerns about the future viability of the company if these issues persist.
“If it happens to be true, what in the name of f*k?” Bischoff said regarding reports of Punk having the ability to decide who is and is not booked for AEW Collision tapings. “Who’s running that company? Is Tony Khan this little dweeb that just is in love with CM Punk and is letting a talent dictate how Tony runs the business he’s invested upwards of $100 million in? What? How does this happen?”
“This guy is — if any of this is true, I blame it all on Tony Khan. He’s a b**h. He’s letting CM Punk run roughshod over everybody in the company. I don’t see AEW having any kind of a real future if indeed this is true.” [H/T Wrestling Inc]

A staggering crowd of over 81,000 fans filled the stands to witness this historic event. The matches showcased exceptional talent and were celebrated as a resounding success. However, tensions arose behind the scenes as two prominent stars clashed before the event went live on air.
