• Chris Jericho Comments On CM Punk Joining WWE Backstage, Says No One Really Cared About His Return

During a recent interview with Spandex, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho talked about CM Punk joining WWE Backstage as an analyst.

Below are the highlights:

On CM Punk joining WWE Backstage:

“It’s a long time coming. We knew there would be a Mötley Crüe reunion and we knew CM Punk would come back to wrestling. It was just a matter of time. I think he came back with more of a sigh than a scream.

It seems kinda funny that he came back on a show that drew 150,000 viewers where it could have been 5 million viewers. But if it’s part of the process to slowly wean him into the wrestling business, then good.

The WWE sure needs him. You need stars in the business. Good for him for coming back. I just think it was not as big as it could have been or should have been. He’s back for the first time in five years and no one really cares. But I’m sure it will lead to more. I don’t see how it can’t.”

On Punk not signing with All Elite Wrestling:

“I’m not disappointed. I know there were some conversations, but Punk’s his own guy. Could we have used him? Yes. Does it hurt us to not have him? No, not at all.”
