CM Punk not joining AEW.

There were rumors that CM Punk might land in the latest pro wrestling company, All Elite Wrestling. These talks are almost dead as CM Punk indirectly declined the possibilities.

Punk was asked to clarify that there is nothing imminent with AEW. He added, “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.”

He continued, “It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe.” Punk was asked if it was specifically an offer for All Out. He responded, “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.”
