• “They are trying to serve the master of the ratings” – Jim Cornette On CM Punk Wrestling On AEW Rampage
CM Punk’s 1st ever match in All Elite Wrestling took place at the All Out 2021 pay-per-view.
After that, Punk has been wrestling on AEW’s Friday night show: Rampage. He has already wrestled two matches on Rampage so far, and tonight is going to be his third (against Matt Sydal).
Jim Cornette isn’t happy about Punk wrestling on Rampage, and said the following on his podcast:
“The reason why Punk was wrestling on this program is due to the ratings plummeting when Punk don’t wrestle on the program, but the problem besides the formatting, which we will gonna talk about in a second, I understand what they are trying to do.
They are trying to get some eyeballs on this show. They need to have an excuse for CM Punk to be wrestling on this show, but they cannot give away, the dream matches on Friday Night Rampage.
They are trying to serve the master of the ratings and etc, but at least if you are gonna do it, format the thing right.”
