CM Punk debuted last year at AEW Rampage: The First Dance and instantly became one of their top stars. One year later, he has already become the biggest star after winning the AEW World Title twice. He also fired back at Eric Bischoff’s criticism.
The Second City Saint previously claimed that there are no longer any casual fans in pro wrestling. Eric Bischoff disagreed with this claim and proceeded to blast Punk for the same as well.
This led to an absolutely scathing reply from CM Punk, who essentially buried Eric Bischoff. Bischoff also had issues with what he said during last year’s All Out. After last year’s show, Punk claimed that he, Bryan Danielson, and Adam Cole going to AEW is “bigger” than Randy Savage, Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Scott Hall jumping over to WCW
While speaking during a media scrum after AEW All Out, CM Punk once again fired back at Eric Bischoff’s criticism and made it clear he still stands by what he said last year.
In five years, you’ll see the impact of it. There is just so much drama and turmoil going on, but I, you know, I like to believe in the place I work. We do have a very, very strong roster and like I said, we have a lot of brilliant minds backstage. So if young talent is willing to actually listen, receive advice, and information I honestly think the sky’s the limit.”
