The possibility of CM Punk joining AEW has been a hot topic in the world of professional wrestling ever since the company was announced back in January, but Punk has given no indication that he’s interested in joining All Elite Wrestling.
It was recently announced that CM Punk will be appearing at Starrcast III during All Out weekend, so naturally talk of Punk possibly working with AEW has intensified.
Punk was asked if there’s anything imminent involving him and AEW during an interview with ESPN, and he noted that he is in contact with people from All Elite.
“The last thing I got — I got a text from Cody [Rhodes]. And again, I almost don’t even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, “Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk.” I’m kind of damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn’t really a way to do good business, at least.”
When he was asked if an offer was made he did say that he receiving an offer from AEW about a month ago.
“It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe.”
The former WWE Champion was then asked if it was an offer to appear at All Out.
“I think it was just a general offer. I never could have done the last one in Vegas [Double or Nothing], because I was in California for CFFC.”
