Fish recently left AEW and made his Impact Wrestling debut at Victory Road. It is unknown how long he will be in Impact or if he will officially join the roster, but it looks like he will be jumping into the world of boxing at the same time. Fish recently discussed his match against CM Punk after people noticed some issues with the end of their match and had quite a bit to say.
“The match I had with Punk, where at the end of that match things go shaky with the kick-out on the GTS, which isn’t even his move. That’s me giving in to my desire to be a little petty in that regard. It’s KENTA’s move and you didn’t even have the decency to change the name Anyway the confusion at the end of our match was the fact that he did what becomes ‘the office’ or an ‘iggy’ This is some baseball stuff here. He did that before the three counts were up,” said Fish (h/t Fightful). “I’ve been in the business for a long time, I recognize what that is and have done it myself to say to someone our way ‘whatever, good match’. He did it before the count of three was up. That’s too a way to warn your opponent, “Hey, let’s change something.” At that moment I can compare it to how Tony Khan may have felt going after the EVPs You don’t know what to do At that moment I know for myself I had to make a split second I could do this or don’t weigh that. I had to kick out or not and I lost the moment forever. I kicked out.”
Fish also brought up the media scrum that took place at All Out, where Punk took pictures of several AEW stars, which seemed to take Tony Khan off guard.
“The only reason I’m bringing it up is because we’re talking about it and I want to give Tony some grace in that regard, just because I’ve been there. To be caught in that position, he definitely should have reacted differently, Jager [Triple H] or Vince McMahon might have folded Phil up for a wet nap at that point, which is probably the right response,” Fish said. “In Tony’s defense, that may not be his personality. Here it is, right now, he’s pulled the cart of his business behind this guy, giving him not only a lot of money, but a lot of confidence, and you kind of shit right next to him there. It’s a shitty position for everyone.”
The fight will take place on November 13 at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai.
