CM Punk Gained Faith In AEW After Brodie Lee Passing

CM Punk made his return to professional wrestling after seven years away on last night’s (August 20) AEW Rampage show, opening the show and challenging Darby Allin to a match at All Out.

Punk, alongside AEW President Tony Khan, appeared on the post-show media scrum for AEW Rampage, where he spoke about how his AEW debut came to be.

Punk mentioned that he gained faith in AEW as a promotion following the events of Brodie Lee’s passing last year, and how the company kept the details to themselves.

Punk explained:

“So, again, now this kind of goes back to one of the appealing things about AEW for me, and it’s a bit of a bummer of a topic; Brodie Lee passes away. Right. Come to find out that he was sick, but nobody knew. Nobody said anything to anybody, because they knew Brodie, they loved Brodie. So, seeing that I was like, I mean there’s something about that, you know, like, if that was anywhere else, it’d be all over the internet. His poor wife would have to be dealing with that on top of already dealing with this tragic event.”

Punk also revealed on the media scrum that he was in talks with AEW for a year and a half, but didn’t want to return in front of no fans.
