• CM Punk Has A Message For People In AEW That Might Not Like Him
On the Road To AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 PPV, Hangman Page said he will defend All Elite Wrestling from CM Punk.
This began speculation that some people in AEW might not like Punk.
During the post-PPV media scrum, new AEW World Champion CM Punk addressed these rumors.
Below are the highlights:
On his message for people in AEW that might not like him:
“I’ve grown so wise in my old age that I’ll do my best to be as diplomatic as I possibly can with this answer.
If there are people backstage that don’t like me, it’s a minority. If anybody says that nobody wants me here or nobody likes me, I like to say that nobodies don’t want me here and nobodies don’t like me.”
On AEW’s growth:
“This is the onward and upward trajectory that AEW has been on for 3 years. You can say with the addition of me, we’re doing better, but I look at it as like, with the addition of Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole and all the talent that Tony brings in every day is a step forward.
It doesn’t necessarily start with me being champion. To me, it’s a team effort. I like to say, if you want to go fast, you go alone. If you want to go far, you go together. This is very much a team effort and a team environment backstage.
I couldn’t do this alone. Obviously, [Tony Khan] did bring me back to professional wrestling so all credit to him. It wasn’t easy to do. I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to be the champ. I take great responsibility in holding that title.
If I’m the face of AEW, then I’m the face of AEW and I’m going to do everything I possibly can to not just put more money in my pocket, but his pocket and everybody’s pockets backstage and put on the best possible show every single time I can for all of you.”
