As previously reported, former AEW World Champion CM Punk sparked controversy on the internet when he posted and deleted a social media post, claiming he wasn’t cleared to wrestle Jon Moxley when he returned to the ring on AEW Dynamite for a title unification match. Among his claims was that Moxley refused to lose to him. He also called Chris Jericho “a liar and a stooge.”

Booker T weighed in on the issue yesterday on his Hall of Fame podcast, taking CM Punk to task for his “childish” behavior. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Booker T on CM Punk’s social media post: “One thing about insider information and stuff like that, brother, it just goes to show me what this business is. Where you’re talking about the business, and giving all of the insider information to the fans that watch. They’re the ones that’re writing your check. That’s the dumbest thing I could ever imagine in my life! Certain terms being used in that little soliloquy… It just amazes me how childish these guys really are.” 

His defense of Chris Jericho: “[Chris Jericho is] the most professional guy in that company thus far.”

What he thinks about Punk’s Instagram post: “the [most] childish thing I’ve ever seen in my life, as far as a 44-year-old man talking on [Instagram].”
