Booker T has given Tony Khan credit for being willing to speak in front of a live crowd about the release of CM Punk.

Addressing the crowd in Chicago before last week’s Collision, Khan discussed Punk’s exit and made it clear it was his decision alone.


On his “Hall of Fame” podcast, Booker spoke about admiring Khan for being willing to speak publicly on the matter. He said,

 “I must give Tony a lot of credit. He didn’t have to go out in front of that Chicago fanbase and take that punishment and abuse, but he went out there and did it. At the end of the day, he got his point across and turned those fans a little bit as far as letting those fans know, ‘Hey, I did this for you. This is something that we created, we created together with you guys.’”

Booker added that while the decision to release Punk may have come from Khan, the AEW President may have been in an impossible situation. He said,

“I don’t doubt that if Tony Khan could have kept CM Punk, he would have kept him. He didn’t give CM Punk all the chances, bringing him back and paying him all this money, for no reason. I mean, I don’t think so. So, I think Tony Khan did not do what he wanted to do.”

Jack Perry has been indefinitely suspended for his involvement with the backstage incident at AEW All In.
