When Punk mentioned Page hasn't done anything in the business…isn't that a HUGE knock on the company? The guy was the AEW World Champion for 6 months. Doesn't that imply that if you haven't won the WWE World title you haven't done anything in the business? And Tony was sitting there just nodding his head like an idiot?
It can be argued forever if this is a work or shoot. It seems a lot like Punk is painted like Hogan was painted backstage in WCW. He came in as the WWF guy who has done much bigger things than guys in WCW. And then guys like Sting got offended that they were there from the beginning.
On the bright side, apparently Punk improved his MMA record to 1-2 after the press conference, so there's that.
