CM Punk might be one of the most polarizing AEW stars today after his now infamous All Out media scrum rant. However, after some more dirty laundry was recently aired, some fans have begun to see the star's point.
The former world champion also cut a memorable promo soon after his return, where he notably kept saying, "tell me when I'm telling lies." Social media quickly ran with the quote, with fans now seemingly using it as a catchphrase to rally behind CM Punk.
While the post-All Out backstage brawl drew many eyes towards AEW, the recent viral social media spat between Andrade El Idolo and Sammy Guevara has taken center stage. Fans seem to largely be behind Andrade, but many have pointed out that this makes the promotion look terrible.
Punk also notably complained about having to "work with children" before going into a tirade about Hangman Page and Colt Cabana. The former Second City Saint has since been called unprofessional by many wrestling veterans for his statements, but fans seem to be seeing things his way now.
Check out the Twitter reactions below:
So far, the consensus has been loud in favor of The Elite, but as time goes on, could more people begin to see the point behind CM Punk's rant?

While Twitter might be swinging their favor towards the former AEW World Champion, the locker room might not be quick to forgive. CM Punk's rant rubbed a lot of stars the wrong way and could have affected his perception amongst his peers.
“I finally did speak to somebody in the dressing room on this and I had said this... it’s very important that if the boys are mad at Punk or Omega or The Young Bucks or whoever’s got the heat in there that needs to be taken into account and this [anonymous] guy told me that’s got mega heat right now is Punk,” Konnan said.

All Elite Wrestling is facing many internal issues right now that are slowly beginning to dampen the fan's perception. But did CM Punk simply bring the issues to light?
