CM Punk Opens Up About Contact From AEW: "Texting Offers Isn't Really A Way To Do Good Business"

All Out takes place on August 31...

CM Punk has revealed in an interview with ESPN that he's already had contact from those at All Elite Wrestling.

Without further ado, here's the Straight Edge Superstar talking about the last time he heard from anybody regarding AEW matters:

Punk: The last thing I got -- I got a text from Cody [Rhodes]. And again, I almost don't even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, "Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk." I'm kind of damned if I do, damned if I don't. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn't really a way to do good business, at least.

ESPN: Was it an offer via text?

Punk: It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe.

ESPN: An offer for All Out?

Punk: I think it was just a general offer. I never could have done the last one in Vegas [Double or Nothing], because I was in California for CFFC

During the same interview, Punk also mentioned that the perceived relationship he has with the people at the top of AEW isn't what it may seem: "I know they like to talk about me a lot. If I text Matt Jackson, "Hey, have a great show tonight," which I did when they had their big show in Vegas, that somehow turns into Tony Khan telling people he has a great relationship with me. I've said in the past I've talked to them, but nothing ever came of anything."
