‘CM Punk Has Disparaged WWE In So Many Ways’ Says Current WWE Name AEW

With rumours of a potential CM Punk return to AEW set to take place in June, he has once against become the talk of the wrestling world.

The scheduled meeting between CM Punk and Chris Jericho ahead of his AEW return took place over the past week, which reportedly ‘went well’.

Before that report came out, Punk was spotted backstage at this week’s episode of WWE Raw in Chicago, where he allegedly spoke to several WWE stars, including The Miz and Triple H who he has had previous issues with, before being asked to leave at the request of Vince McMahon.

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T gave his thoughts on Punk being backstage at the show on his Hall of Fame podcast, where he said that Punk has ‘disparaged’ the company ‘in so many ways’ over the past seven years.

He said:

“CM Punk isn’t the type to want to go just to say, ‘Hi.’ What’s behind it? What does that mean? I don’t know, man. Over the last seven years, CM Punk has disparaged WWE in so many different ways, it’s not even funny. So many different ways.

“I remember when I first got into the wrestling business, this guy, I’m not gonna even mention his name. It’s not even important. He was trying to get me blackballed from the business before I even got started. I was just a kid trying to get into the business, but I was a kid that wasn’t willing to just eat crow and just bow down to people, ever. I just never been that guy. He tried to get me blackballed. I found out about it later.

“I remember when I became the World Heavyweight Champion. We had a show at the Summit, which is now Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. I saw this guy in the building. You know what I did? I told security to bounce his ass out of there. Do you know what security did? They bounced him right up out of there because that’s the way I really felt about that guy. I’m sure after everything CM Punk has said about this company, a lot of people probably feel that way about him.

“I was out of WWE years when I left that company. You’re not going to find any promos. You’re not going to find any disparaging words because it’s a bridge that I may want to cross back over one day. Why burn bridges, and not just burn them, but take a C4 to them?”

Punk’s return to AEW is tentatively planned to take place at the United Center in Chicago on June 17, which is rumoured to be the debut episode of AEW’s upcoming Saturday night show on TNT.
