• Update On All Elite Wrestling’s Interest In CM Punk

During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, Old School WWF Legend & AEW Superstar Chris Jericho was asked about AEW’s interest in signing former WWE wrestler CM Punk.

Below is what Jericho said:

“CM Punk’s not so much a free agent as he is a retired wrestler, from what I understand. Of course we’d love to have Punk come in there.”

Jericho was also asked about former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega possibly signing with WWE and below is what Y2J said:

“Once I signed, the last remaining huge free agent is Kenny Omega. Jericho and Omega were the two. Where’s he gonna end up? I hope it’s with AEW, I really do. I guess we’ll find out, because his contract ends very quickly.”
