The wrestling media is calling this the "Will Smith Slap" of the wrestling world, something that should have him kicked out of the league, but it is wrestling, and it could be part of the storyline, since EVERYTHING is part of a storyline these days!
You see, far more sophisticated minds are behind this and basically all the viral stunts we've seen across all industries, because they need to keep people talking outside of actual sporting event, to lure people into watching the sporting event due to the controversy alone!
It is very likely an attempt to make people care at a pivotal time for the AEW, which has it's TV contract up for renewal, so the more hype, the better terms they'll get, maybe even a bidding war!
It could always be real, because CM Punk is a controversial figure, but is anything real? Probably not!
