Last night on AEW Dynamite, many fans in Chicago booed The Elite. There was cheering, but at times the CM Punk chants and boos took over as The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega played to the negative reaction of some.
This was expected because they were in Chicago and the antics during the match led some to believe that perhaps something had been worked out with Punk to turn this all into a storyline.
Apparently that’s not the case, as Dave Meltzer stated on Wrestling Observer Radio that he heard from people close to CM Punk that they weren’t happy with what they saw.
“I know there are people close to CM Punk, that kid, if they weren’t happy with that 6-man tag match,” Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio.

For those of you who missed it, The Bucks featured in the chants “F**k The Elite” and “F**k CM Punk”. At one point, Omega apparently bit Penta’s arm to play off reports that Ace Steel bit his arm during the backstage fight. Also Matt Jackson mocked Punk’s failed Buckshot Lariat from Double Or Nothing and Omega came on the GTS. Click below to watch last night’s punk-related clips.
