Dax Harwood: CM Punk's Door Was Always Open In AEW

Dax Harwood has come out in defence of CM Punk in AEW

The saga of CM Punk and AEW is one that will linger on for quite some time, especially after Kenny Omega revealed that no one involved in the events of ‘Brawl Out’ will ever speak publicly about it.

Since then there’s been various reports stating that Punk is as good as done in AEW, with other reports suggesting that Punk did not leave a good impression on members of AEW’s locker room. However, in a recent interview with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp, FTR’s Dax Harwood came out in support of Punk, saying:

“A man who obviously has his detractors and sometimes the detractors, and not just in AEW – around the wrestling world - and sometimes the detractors are louder than him and get their news out more than him. But again, it all comes from a place of passion. When he first came into the company, I remember talking to Cash (Wheeler) and I said, “if this motherf***** comes in and if he says something to me about how I dress, dress code or whatever, we’re going to have a problem” and he came in, and he was the complete opposite. He had his door always open, invited people in, watched matches of the young wrestlers that asked him to, stuck around until the end of the show and anybody that had questions, he would answer the questions. He loves wrestling. Just like me, unabashedly is a professional wrestling fan. Just like Sasha (Banks), I talk to him every day and whatever he decides to do, I hope it brings him happiness and joy because he deserves it."

Punk and FTR were positioned together on AEW TV, with the current ROH, IWGP, and AAA Tag Champs teaming with Punk in trios action on the June 1 edition of AEW Dynamite.
