In an interview with Steve Fall of NBC Sports, Fish provided more insight as to why he's not a fan of CM Punk.

"There is no challenge," Fish said, clarifying that it was an invitation for Punk to fight him. "Phil is not a bad pro wrestler, but what Phil is not, is a martial artist. I've been doing martial arts since I was eight years old, so I take a lot of pride in it. It's something that I'll do until the day I die. There are other people within pro wrestling, Bryan Danielson, Kyle O'Reilly, people that train, and they put that into their pro wrestling. You do that because pro wrestling is made up in a way that we get to bring a little piece of ourselves and add to it what we do because so many variables are controlled. You can paint with whatever color you want. Choose a color that you have in your toolbox. If you don't have blue, you're not painting with blue. CM Punk is not a martial artist. He went on pay-per-view and showed the world that he's not a martial artist. He is a pro wrestler. Go out, tackle, drop down, leapfrog, give it again. All good. In that lane, he has talent. When it comes to martial arts, you're insulting the audience's intelligence because we're supposed to be creating an atmosphere where you suspend your disbelief. It's insulting for you, as one of my co-workers or peers, as a martial artist, you're asking me to go out and sell and put over your bunk-ass martial arts. It's insulting to the audience, it's an insult to me."

Fish and Punk wrestled on the October 27 episode of AEW Dynamite and Fish said Punk was less than pleasant after the match.

"I'm working for AEW, they're paying my check, you ask me to put my shoulders down for Phil Brooks, I go out and do it. Interestingly enough, there was a little whatever in the match we had, and Phil was...after the match, Phil was a cunt. Frankly, as a martial artist, I went out and laid my shoulders down for you, you should be grateful that I did because on national TV, if I decided that I wanted to fucking Haku your ass, I could have because you're that little of a threat in my world. I'm not Jon Jones or Anderson Silva, but I've been doing martial arts long enough to where I can hold you like a wet nap Phil Brooks. For you to be cunty after, for a mistake you made, it doesn't wear well. Not to mention, the move he finished me with, it's not his, it's KENTA's. Phil, you took a man's finishing move. Anyone who knows pro wrestling knows that's fucked up. You weren't even decent enough to change the name," Fish said.

KENTA used the Go 2 Sleep before Punk began using the move.

Fish is currently a free agent after his contract with AEW wasn't renewed. Punk won the AEW World Title in the main event of AEW All Out, but suffered triceps injury in the match and his status with AEW is unknown following his comments at the media scrum and the altercation with The Elite.
