CM Punk is set to make his big return to AEW, and he will be a featured act on AEW Collision. This means that fans will soon see the end of his hiatus from in-ring action. Of course, he also had a lot to say before he even stepped foot in an AEW ring once again.
We already covered how CM Punk opened up about his bad time against Hangman Page at Double or Nothing. That moment caused a rift between the two. Sadly, Punk couldn’t talk about the whole Brawl Out situation.
While speaking to ESPN, CM Punk opened up about his time in the All Out media scrum. This was about all he could speak about, but suffice it to say that emotions were running high.
“The first thing I said to Tony when I sat down with him and spoke to him after it was, ‘Man, I’m really sorry I put you in that position.’ I apologize for the scrum. But when you’ve watched that scrum, you’re looking at a very, very frustrated guy who had told people. That’s not the first time he heard all that.
It’s not the first time lawyers were told all that. And I was just looking for something to be done and nothing got done. So, if you want something done right, you got to do it yourself. And I just didn’t approach it in the right manner, but tension was high. I was very, very pissed. I pretty much knew that I had just injured myself again. I was hurt, and I was disappointed. Yeah, it’s very easy for me to say I regret that and I handled it the wrong way, 100%.”
CM Punk could draw a lot of attention to AEW with his return to the ring. Hopefully, he will help move the needle for Tony Khan’s new television show, because Saturday night is a very tough time slot.
The Second City Savior’s interview with ESPN brought attention even before it started. A lot of people were anxious to see what he said during the interview that would ruffle so many feathers.
We will keep a close eye on CM Punk’s situation, right here at Ringside News. There could be even more going on before Collision even airs on SaturdaySaturday nightnight.
