Cody Rhodes Doesn't Agree With CM Punk's Assessment Of AEW, Tony Khan

Cody Rhodes disagrees with CM Punk’s recent comments about AEW and Tony Khan

After CM Punk’s withering put-down of All Elite Wrestling and owner Tony Khan during an interview with Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour, Cody Rhodes was asked his opinion on the company he helped build.

Rhodes - also appearing on the MMA Hour - disagreed with Punk’s assessment of AEW and Khan, with Rhodes saying the following:

"That's his assessment, it is not my assessment," Rhodes said. "It's always important for me to remind people that I am so proud of what me, Matt, Nick [Jackson], Kenny [Omega], Tony [Khan], Bernie [Cahill], Brandi [Rhodes], Dana [Massey], and Chris [Jericho] - and I name all these people because I was in those meetings. As much as the internet will spin a narrative one way, if one of those people had not been at that startup level, the company would not have happened.

"It's not my assessment. In my time there, the infrastructure was just being built up. We were trying new things, and doing things. It was a startup company, a big-time startup company but a startup company and I wish them nothing but the best.”

Punk infamously clashed with AEW EVPs The Young Bucks, with Rhodes saying the following about the issues between Punk and The Elite when asked:

"I just think what happened there was a ton of misunderstanding, a ton of miscommunication," said Rhodes. "I love Matt, Nick, and Kenny and I love CM Punk. I don't know how, but I do. I'm just happy for everyone involved. I just think it was a ships in the night thing. I wasn't there, though.”
