Report: AEW Stars Don't Want CM Punk To Return
Wade Keller has detailed the backstage attitude in AEW regarding CM Punk.
According to a report by Wade Keller of PWTorchVIP.com, the majority of wrestlers in AEW would not be in favour of CM Punk returning. Keller explained:
"The wrestlers don’t want him back. The majority of wrestlers don’t want him back. I would go as far as even saying that my sources are saying the mass majority of wrestlers don’t want him back. One person said maybe one or two of the top third of the roster want him back. [...] In terms of the top stars, the politics are not terrible among the top guys. There’s some tension among the top guys, but it’s mostly: Punk doesn’t get along with Hangman, Punk doesn’t get along with Moxley, Punk doesn’t get along with Kenny, Punk doesn’t get along with the Bucks..."
Keller also spoke about the likely response if Tony Khan looked to bring Punk back into the AEW fold, saying:
"My sense is that there would be something greater than a strong pushback amongst top talent in AEW if Tony Khan tries to bring back Punk at this point. I think it would [have been] difficult before Punk said what he said on Instagram. I think it’s going to be much more difficult now, but I don’t know if the odds of Tony wanting to bring back Punk have changed based on what Punk said.”
