Chris Jericho: Of Course I'd Love To See CM Punk In AEW
Punk is strongly rumoured to be debuting for AEW soon
The internet was whipped into a frenzy recently with the rumoured news that CM Punk is about to sign/has signed with AEW.
Whilst the likes of Tony Khan and Cody Rhodes have refused to comment on the situation, Chris Jericho has addressed the rumours head-on, telling Inside the Ropes that he’d love to see Punk in an AEW ring:
“Well, I mean, the short answer is, ‘Of course.’ I mean, he’s one of the few guys out there that has has this mythology surrounding him because he hasn’t wrestled so long.”
“Take Punk out of the equation. Sting is with us now. Edge is back in WWE. Christian is with us. But you take, other than that, guys who haven’t wrestled for a long time, he’s probably at the top of the list, unless you’re going to throw Steve Austin in there and you know Steve’s not going to come back.”
With AEW selling out Chicago’s United Center for an upcoming edition of AEW Rampage, the belief is that Punk will make some sort of appearance on the show.
“So, it would create a huge buzz that would add to the already huge buzz that we have,” said Jericho “And I think just the fact that 12,000 tickets sold at the United Center without one name even being announced, or one match even being announced, shows just how much anticipation there is for all of these things. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens.”
