CM Punk Reveals AEW Made Him An Interesting Offer To Return To The Ring



CM Punk left WWE back in 2014 and aside from making a masked appearance at an Indy promotion earlier this year, the former World Champion has stayed out of the ring over the past five years.

Punk has been able to explore many other avenues of employment since his departure from WWE, following the 2014 Royal Rumble, including making the shift over to the UFC, writing in a number of comic books and even looking to make a splash in the acting business.

That being said, ever since the rise of All Elite Wrestling, the question of CM Punk’s future in the ring has been on every wrestling fans lips. Tony Khan and The Young Bucks have even talked about the possibility of the original “Best in the World” making his return to the ring as part of AEW.

Punk recently spoke to ESPN about his upcoming appearance as part of Starrcast III which is the same weekend as All Out in Chicago, where he reiterated that there was nothing to his appearance aside from the Starrcast booking.

“They asked if I wanted to do Starrcast. That’s basically it,” there’s no mad scientist formula to it. I hate traveling. I’ve turned down offers to do signings in other places. It turns into a mission to leave town just to do a signing and stuff. I like to take time with everybody and make sure everybody has a good experience. I try not to just shuffle people through a line. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s not just somebody shoves something in front of me, I sign it and it’s on to the next. I really try to make sure everybody has a story to tell or an experience. Sometimes it can be exhausting. The biggest thing was it’s in my hometown. I get to go for one day, I get to have fun, I get to give back to the fans, so to speak. And I get to go home and rest afterward.”

The former World Champion was then asked about his relationship with AEW and whether or not he was looking to work with the company in the future.

“The last thing I got — I got a text from Cody [Rhodes]. And again, I almost don’t even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, “Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk.” I’m kind of damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn’t really a way to do good business, at least.”

“It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe. I think it was just a general offer. I never could have done the last one in Vegas [Double or Nothing], because I was in California for CFFC,” he said via WrestlingInc.
