CM Punk was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated, where he spoke about giving back to AEW.
“This is really about the soul, the spirit, and the art of professional wrestling. It reminds me of how I started. It’s why guys like me and Bryan Danielson would drive 15 hours to get to a show, and barely get gas money in return, to wrestle in front of 300 rabid fans in Philadelphia. That’s what this is, with TNT behind it. We’re the punk rock band that used to play at your bowling alley. It has that spirit and love of the art. It’s a place where you can make a living and learn the craft.”
Punk says he believes AEW has potential and has already accomplished some amazing things.
“AEW got Bryan Danielson, a once-in-generation talent, to come here, and they got me to come back after all the time I was gone, and then you have AEW doing the impossible, making a deal with Martha Hart to produce Owen Hart T-shirts, action figures and they’re even going to put him in video games. That speaks volumes to what AEW is and the potential of how much bigger it can get.”
CM Punk wrestled Bobby Fish last night on AEW Dynamite.
