It was at last week’s Rampage, Kingston interrupted Punk during a backstage interview after the former lost AEW World Championship Eliminator tournament match against Bryan Danielson. This action from the ‘Mad King’ did not sit well with Punk and he called out Kingston on this week’s Dynamite. ‘The Second City Saint’ demanded an apology and on the latest edition of Rampage, Kingston finally responded to Punk.

Kingston denied apologizing to Punk and further said that he had no sympathy for Punk and his ego. He added that he idolized CM Punk, but he claimed people like Punk, Homicide, and Samoa Joe judged him backstage when he started wrestling because of his appearance. Punk replied that he wasn’t wrong to expect greatness from Eddie Kingston 15 years ago, but it was his fault for continuing to expect it from The Mad King, calling him a ‘bum’.

Eddie Kingston then said that no one in the AEW locker room wanted him there. He then challenged CM Punk to a match at AEW Full Gear that Punk accepted. Kingston told him to quit for another 7 years and leave after this match. Punk had heard enough and headbutted Kingston which ended in a brawl.
