Bully Ray believes that airing the AEW All In footage did more for CM Punk than it did for AEW. Bully was critical of the decision to air to the footage during the lead up to last week’s Dynamite, and he explained on Busted Open Radio why he thinks it backfired on AEW. You can see highlights below, courtesy of Wrestling Inc:

On airing the footage: “It backfired. People in the arena — I don’t care if it was 10 people or 100 people or whatever, people were chanting for CM Punk.”

On the footage helping CM Punk: “I think that they actually make CM Punk look like a sympathetic figure here because Punk said what he said on Helwani’s show, and exactly what he said people saw. For face value, people are like, ‘Okay, Punk did exactly what he said he did.’ Anybody can say whatever they want, there was no reason to air the footage. There was no reason to say the Bucks wanted the footage aired, this guy wanted the footage aired. One person wanted this footage aired.”
