CM Punk’s return to AEW has a lot of fans wondering what is going to happen. Through it all, there was apparently no intention for the Second City Savior to ever really quit the business.
CM Punk took several years off from pro wrestling after walking out of WWE. Many fans didn’t know if he would make a return at all, but Punk’s hiatus from the ring was able to recharge his batteries.
While speaking to ESPN, CM Punk opened up about his time in the All Out media scrum, and how he put Tony Khan in bad position. This was about all he could speak about, but suffice it to say that emotions were running high.
“I certainly had some low moments, and I won’t rule out in those fleeting moments where I just say, ‘Ah, f— this, whatever,'”
“But I don’t ever think it was a serious intention to say that I’m done. There’s still work to do, and I think I’m excited about a lot of stuff that’s coming up. So, to just throw the baby out with the bathwater, just because of a little boo-boo, I think would be a little silly.”
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.
CM Punk draws a lot of attention to himself, no matter what he’s doing. Odds are, he will come up with a few ways to draw headlines in the weeks to comes.
