CM Punk: There Are More Big Money Matches For Me In AEW Than Anywhere Else

Who will Punk be facing next?

CM Punk believes there are more big money matches for him in All Elite Wrestling than any other company. 

The Second City Saviour will make his in-ring return at All Out against Darby Allin and Punk told Busted Open Radio there are so many wrestlers he is looking forward to working with. 

"The lame answer is everybody. I've never worked with The Young Bucks or Kenny Omega. I've worked with Cody in 2009. Those are the guys I never mention when I'm doing media because I always feel the need to put the spotlight on other young guys; Darby Allin, Brian Pillman Jr, (Powerhouse) Hobbs, Ricky Starks. There are people that have potential and if you know anything about wrestling and watch the programme, you see those guys and you go, 'that guy right there. That guy has something,'" Punk said. 

"I love how they are rough around the edges and that's so great. It reminds me of watching an old wrestling studio show and not everything is super polished and an LED screen. These guys have different gear, different looks, personalities, they are all different. You can tell they come from different spots and have trained in different ways and have different styles. That's what 100% attracted me to the AEW locker room. Why wouldn't I want to wrestle these guys and go there? You talk about big money matches. There are way more in AEW than anywhere else for me."

Who Punk will face after Darby Allin has yet to be revealed but the former WWE Champion wants to go one on one with Bryan Danielson again after The American Dragon's expected AEW debut.
