AEW Reportedly Upset About Remarks Made by CM Punk

AEW Reportedly Upset About Remarks Made by CM Punk
CM Punk possibly joining AEW has been one of the hottest topic of the Summer.

As noted, Tony Khan wanted CM Punk for AEW even before The Elite was part of the equation. However, a recent interview that Punk gave didn’t seem to make it sound too likely.

Punk said he received a contract offer via text message and that resulted in a lot of people throwing shade at AEW concerning how they’re conducting business.

Cody Rhodes later said that he thought Punk was misquoted because someone from AEW met with Punk in person. Rhodes said that he did text Punk when they were not able to connect by phone but a contracted offer was not presented via text.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that some people in All Elite Wrestling were upset about what CM Punk said. They felt that the company has always been “up-front in business with him and felt that when people in the company have asked about Punk coming, they’ve always been honest.”

It was also reported that Tony Khan and CM Punk have also been in contact several times and the feeling was that they did have a “great relationship.” This might have been perceived a bit differently according to Punk’s interview.

Khan and Cody have also been in contact at times and there was a feeling this interview implied when Khan would say he has a great relationship with Punk but it’s up to Punk whether he comes, that he’s exaggerating things.

As noted, Dave Metzler reported that there is no deal for CM Punk to appear at All Out or signs with AEW in the immediate future.
