CM Punk’s debut on AEW is one of the surprising things in the world of pro-wrestling. While the former WWE superstar was expected to make comeback sometime, most presumed that it would be at WWE.

Punk had a conversation with ESPN SportsNation’s Charly Arnolt (formerly known as WWE’s Charly Caruso). While he talked about Brodie Lee’s death and how the AEW locker room handled it, he expressed that this is how he knew AEW was better than WWE.

You know, one of the big things that turned me onto them and made me consider going there, was you know… unfortunately we, the wrestling world, lost Brodie Lee last November, last December, I’m sorry. His sickness and everything that came with it was known in the company, but they kept it so secret.

CM Punk added that while most wrestlers would call themselves a family, he said that it’s not entirely true. However, that was true for AEW’s locker room, and that blew Punk away.


Wrestlers will always tell you, ‘Oh the boys, we’re a big family, we care about each other in the wrestling business…’ And none of that is entirely true, but to see everyone in the company band together just to keep a secret about somebody’s health, I was blown away by that. I was blown away that it wasn’t plastered all over every single website, and it was just kept secret. That made me go, ‘Well there’s something to that locker room.’

Punk is all set for more appearances at AEW. He wasn’t initially interested in AEW, but now things have changed. He recently fired back at haters, and cut an insane promo with Christian Cage after AEW Dynamite.
