• AEW Officials Upset About CM Punk’s Recent Comments
During a recent interview with ESPN, former WWE wrestler CM Punk revealed that AEW did offer him a contract, but he didn’t like the way they offered him a contract.
Below is what Punk said:
“The last thing I got — I got a text from Cody [Rhodes]. And again, I almost don’t even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, ‘Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk’. I’m kind of damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn’t really a way to do good business, at least.
It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe.
I think it was just a general offer. I never could have done the last one in Vegas [Double or Nothing], because I was in California for CFFC.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW officials are upset about these comments made by Punk as they believe they’ve always been up-front in business with him and have always been honest about Punk’s status with the company in public.
