• CM Punk Says Daniel Bryan & Adam Cole Joining AEW Is Bigger Than Kevin Nash & Scott Hall Joining WCW
During the post-All Out media scrum, CM Punk was asked how he compares Daniel Bryan and Adam Cole leaving WWE for AEW to Kevin Nash & Scott Hall (The Outsiders) leaving WWF for WCW.
Here’s what Punk said:
“Obviously, I think it’s going to be very impactful. I’m not personally in the business of a war, for competing. I know who competition is and who competition isn’t. To me, we focus on ourselves. We focus on the talent we have, and we focus on the people in the building and I think that’s how we grow.
It’s not about throwing stones, and I know TNT loves ratings and I know everybody’s gonna look at stuff and compare the two. For a company that’s only been around for 2 years, I think they’re doing great, and if you’re competing with somebody on another night that’s got a 30-year head start, well, that’s fine, but to me, our competition is our audience.
And as long as we keep them engaged, and keep them happy, and to bring it back around, that’s what we’re doing.
I’m not (Hulk) Hogan. I’m not (Randy) Savage. Daniel Bryan and Adam Cole, they’re not The Outsiders. I see the parallels. This is totally different, and I’ll go ahead and say it, and people can quote me and they’ll be pissed off about it. To me, this is bigger.”
