• Former WWE Champion Wants To Win The Owen Hart Cup In AEW
Former WWE Champion CM Punk was interviewed by Sport 1 and revealed that he plans to win the ‘Owen Hart Cup’ in All Elite Wrestling, a tournament to honor the late, great WWF Legend ‘The King of Harts’ Owen Hart.
Here’s what Punk said:
“I knew about it beforehand, but it still hit me like a truck when I read the press release just because I think it’s such a staggering and monumental bridge.
I think it goes a long way to show and prove that Martha always wanted Owen’s memory to be revered and his legacy preserved. It just couldn’t be at WWE and if you really look at it, it makes a lot of sense.
I want to be in that tournament, 100%. I don’t know if it’s just going to be for the younger, not so on the map high-fliers, I’m not sure how that’s going to go. I look at my career as being, I haven’t wrestled for 7 years, I can’t come in and challenge for a World Title right away.
I look at the situation with Bryan Danielson coming in and wrestling Kenny Omega in his first match, but it wasn’t for the Title. When I wrestle Kenny Omega, it’s gonna be for the Title and I’m not going to need 30 minutes to beat him.”
CM Punk left the WWE in January 2014 and returned to professional wrestling in August 2021, when he joined Tony Khan’s AEW.
