The report also claimed that Punk advised Perry that if he was dissatisfied with how things were handled on Collision, he should participate in Dynamite. Perry’s reactions were described to that of a display of a temper tantrum.
According to the report by Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer, Perry’s intention wasn’t to intentionally evade work. He had already scheduled a vacation, and to act like he had been removed from the TV, he was participating in a pre-recorded scene featuring a car.
Punk clearly opposed this idea because he was expressing concerns about the potential danger of executing a broken glass element and also prioritizing Perry’s safety report. It also reported that Punk’s decision left Perry upset.
Recently, news also came out that Hangman Page, Matt Hardy, Ryan Nemeth, Christopher Daniels, and Isiah Kassidy were also scheduled for the Collision episode, but Collison sent them home.
Regarding Punk, Samoa Joe has issued a challenge to face Punk in a one-on-one match at AEW All In 2023 PPV event.
