Tony Khan Breaks Silence On CM Punk Following His WWE Return

Tony Khan on CM Punk's WWE exit

AEW head honcho Tony Khan has spoken about CM Punk for the first-time since the former AEW World Champion's shock return to WWE at last weekend's Survivor Series. 

Earlier this week, Khan had declined to make a direct comment due to what he claimed were legal reasons preventing him from doing so. 

But in a new interview with the New York Post, Khan praised Punk for his contributions to the company by saying: 

"The First Dance was an incredible moment in wrestling and was part of a very important time in AEW. All Out 2021, along with All In, are our biggest pay-per-views of all time and we've had a lot of great success as a company as a team and in some of the most exciting times, CM Punk has been a big part of that team".

A recent report indicated that Khan was largely unfazed about the 45-year-old signing a multiyear deal with WWE and was, in fact, more concerned with losing the services of Katsuyori Shibata (who needs to return to Japan for an extended period of time).
