It’s been well over five years since CM Punk wrestled a match, yet still, fans the world over chant his name and link him to All Elite Wrestling.
It turns out that AEW Executive Vice Presidents, Matt and Nick Jackson, would love to see the former WWE Champion in their company but so far the timing hasn’t been right in order to make it happen (Thanks to Fightful for the following transcription from the pair’s interview with Chris Van Vliet):
Nick: We’ll be honest. Of course, we would love him to come to our company. At this time, I just don’t think he wants to.
Matt: When he wants to come back to wrestling, it’ll be his decision.
Nick: Matt talks to him all the time about it but the timing is not right, I guess.
Matt: Professional wrestling is the most demanding thing in the world. You can’t just find yourself back in it one day and be like ‘okay, I guess I’m doing this again.’ You really have to want to do it and that’s up to him.
