Cody Rhodes Discusses the Possibility of C.M. Punk Joining All Elite Wrestling

Cody Rhodes Discusses the Possibility of C.M. Punk Joining All Elite Wrestling

All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes recently spoke with ComicBook.com. When discussing the possibility of former WWE Champion C.M. Punk ever joining All Elite Wrestling, Rhodes gave the following statements:

Last year something with All In that we noticed is that at the actual show there wasn’t a single CM Punk chant. Great, OK. It’s not that they don’t like Punk, but they know that we’re here and we’re putting on this show.’ This year I don’t expect anything different. I’ve been very honest about that door remains opened. The fans have never given up on CM Punk and if he wanted to be part of AEW we would do everything in our power to make him part of it.

But I have 25 to 35 brand new stars. Guys like Jungle Boy. Guys like MJF. Ladies like Kylie Rae, Britt Baker. If I was to spend all my time in trying to recruit just one CM Punk, I would be doing a disservice to them. I felt, in the past, with my own career that a disservice that has happened to me on occasion about putting someone ahead of me. You always hear the discussion of part-time, this and that. I don’t want to go too far there, but I want to make AEW about performers we have.

That door will forever remain open to CM Punk. He was very good to me in OVW. He was a great person to learn from in the ring. I had a good relationship with him. That door will remain open, but for All Out, the main focus for me is Hangman Page and Chris Jericho to determine the very first AEW World Champion.
