If you didn’t know already, Bobby Fish doesn’t like CM Punk.
Fightful Select have reported more information regarding Fish and Punk. Punk was not happy after Fish would kick out shortly after the three count when the two would face off after Punk landed a GTS to the former Undisputed Elite member.
Backstage detractors of Punk reached out to Fightful Select following Fish’s interview and subsequent stories. Grapsody’s Will Washington tweeted a clip that reminded fans that Bobby Fish either kicked out right at three, or made an attempt to kick out after Punk’s signature “Go To Sleep” finishing move in their match. If you’d guess that Punk wasn’t happy about that, it seems to be right, as many told us that was the catalyst of their poor relationship. Several people who remembered being backstage at the match were confused as to why he would do that, knowing that it likely wouldn’t go over well. When one veteran relayed the message to Fightful, they noted that it took CM Punk a long time to get to the pin, but that he was actively selling for Bobby Fish in doing so. We’re told after that, there wasn’t much communication between Punk and Fish.Fightful Select Report
