• AEW Coach Compares CM Punk & Daniel Bryan Joining AEW To Hulk Hogan & Bret Hart Joining WCW
During a recent interview with TV Insider, WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry (who is a backstage coach in AEW) was asked about CM Punk & Daniel Bryan being rumored to have signed with All Elite Wrestling.
Here’s what The World’s Strongest Man said:
“I think it’s amazing if it happens. As a fan, I want to see it. But I don’t want to know. Don’t tell me. Let me find out like the fans, so I can react just like the fans.
I’m not the gossipy type. I won’t walk around the locker room trying to get gossip. I don’t want that, but I do think either gentleman or both gentlemen would be groundbreakers.
They would be able to do something in AEW like when Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart went to WCW from WWF. It would be a positive step. It’s not like we have to have that in AEW, but they would be welcomed additions.”
