Andrew Zarian has stated during the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast that several WWE network partners are “shocked” at the growing rumor that AEW has pulled off a deal deal with former WWE Superstar CM Punk.
It was noted that the executives who were most vocal are not wrestling fans, and thus don't understand the inner workings of the pro wrestling industry or why CM Punk was ever allowed to leave WWE.
