Tony Khan Compares CM Punk Getting Booed At AEW Full Gear To The Rock At WrestleMania 18


CM Punk beat Eddie Kingston at the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event in Minneapolis, MN at the Target Center. During the match, Punk was booed while Kingston was cheered. 

During the post-event media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan discussed how it reminded him of The Rock being booed against Hulk Hogan, who was supposed to be the heel. 

“I remember being the only person out of 70,000 cheering for The Rock in Toronto,” Khan said. “My friend looked over me like, ‘what are you doing?’ And I was like, ‘somebody has to.’ And that’s how I felt about Punk getting booed tonight (vs. Kingston). There were way, way, way more Punk people tonight than there were Rock people in Toronto, though. I can attest as I was there for both shows.”
