• Former WWE Writer Shoots On CM Punk Getting Hurt In “Every Match He’s In”
After winning the AEW World Championship for the first time, CM Punk got injured on the very next episode of Dynamite, when he jumped into the crowd during his entrance.
Punk got injured (legitimately) for the second time during the main event at All Out, where he won the AEW World Title for the second time.
According to former WWE Writer Freddie Prinze Jr., Punk’s injuries prevent AEW’s younger wrestlers from buying into his philosophy.
Below is what Freddie said on his podcast:
“If you listen to what CM Punk said in the beginning, he said, I can’t wait to work with this next generation, this young talent out here, and give them the spotlight they need.
Now he went in there with that intention in mind, but when you see how different that other generation thinks, and what kind of stories they want to tell, and how different it is than what you want to do, and when your body won’t allow you to tell the stories that they told when you were in your prime, and you start getting hurt all the time trying to prove a philosophy, it’s hard for that younger generation to buy into your philosophy even more.
They’re like, he’s talking about us working and that we’re gonna get hurt and he’s hurt every match he’s in.”
