CM Punk arrived in AEW and he has taken on a handful of opponents so far. There will always be criticism of any booking decision, and Jim Cornette has been very outspoken, among others. CM Punk heard those voices loud and clear.
Punk is set to battle Eddie Kingston at AEW Full Gear. It would make perfect sense if Punk suffers his first loss tonight against King. After all, it would fit the storyline.
While speaking to Bleacher Report. CM Punk took on some of those critical opinions. He explained that people who have only seen the same thing for twenty years don’t know what to think when something different is presented to them.
“I think the majority of people currently watching wrestling have been fed the same thing for 20-25 years so that when they see something different, they automatically don’t understand it, don’t like it, or try to dissect it. There are a million different styles of pro wrestling, there are a million different booking philosophies, and I’m just kind of doing what I want to do. You can’t really look at the whole picture until you know we’re done telling the story.”
CM Punk will remain with AEW for the long haul. We’ll just have to see how many years that stay will entail, but he still has a lot of ground to cover. A heel turn could also be on the way for the Second City Savior, and we just can’t wait to hear what fans have to say about that.
