AEW DYNAMITE


December 8, 2021, UBS Arena, Belmont Park, NY


Commentary: Excalibur, Taz & Tony Schiavone


MJF’s music hits and out comes CM Punk instead. Crowd is booing. Punk embraces it. He takes a playful dig at the Islanders before running down MJF. He asks Long Island about MJF being “their guy.” He talks about basing Punk’s praise for Britt Baker as “T&A” rather than in-ring intentions. He questions it more and runs down the Islanders more. He talks about having a number one contender’s match for the AEW World Championship. Punk says his dog Larry has more balls than MJF and Larrry’s nuetered. He wants MJF one-on-one and that’s it. He’ll do it right here, tonight.
