• Cody Rhodes Says CM Punk Made AEW Guys Look Like Dumba$$es
During a recent interview on Collider Live, AEW Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes talked about trying to sign former WWE wrestler CM Punk to AEW.
Below is what Cody said:
“But he did kind of make us look like dumba$$es, saying we sent him a text offer. I’m sure we texted him, but we also called him. Someone also met him in a coffee shop.
We made genuine effort but in this case in 2019, he spent quite some time away from the ring, we gotta focus on who really wants to be on board with us versus going out and finding someone who perhaps doesn’t want to be part of this.
I didn’t, I didn’t really communicate with him further after that. I expected to see him at Starrcast. He gave this great live show that he did with Mike Johnson where he was really great with you know his answers. I’m sure we’ll run into each other at some point.
If he ever wanted to be part of this and had the passion to come back to wrestling, that door is always open. No ego, no situation would ever prevent us from having him come in because the fans have never given up on Punk. Ever. It’s crazy.”
