Malakai Black Says There’s Currently A ‘Buzz’ In AEW Locker Room

AEW star Malakai Black has said that there is a buzz within the AEW locker room, following recent CM Punk and Daniel Bryan reports.

It has been speculated that CM Punk will make an appearance on next week’s AEW Rampage show, following reports that he’s signed with the company. This, along with the rumor that Daniel Bryan will wrestle for the promotion soon, has seemingly got the AEW roster excited.

Speaking on Pro Wrestling 4 Life with Sean Waltman, Malakai Black admitted that he doesn’t know if the reports are true, but there is a buzz in the AEW locker room regardless.

Discussing the “exciting times” ahead, Black said:

“I genuinely, genuinely do not know if it’s true. I genuinely don’t. I haven’t heard anyone mention it. Obviously, there’s a buzz in the locker room, of course. I think it’d be great. I think it really proves that the times are changed. I think it would be a validation of how different everything is and how…different the business is now.”

“I want everybody to be successful. I want all my friends in WWE to be able to provide for their families. I want all my friends and colleagues in AEW to be able to provide for their families. That’s what I care about. And if someone like CM Punk goes over to AEW, that’s great for business. That’s good for all of us because it gives the fans something to work with….It puts a fresh wind in everyone’s sails….Deep down, I hope it’s true. I think that’d be very, very cool to see and very cool to see how the world of professional wrestling will react to it…Exciting times, you know what I mean? Very, very exciting times.”

It was previously reported that members of the AEW roster who hadn’t wrestled CM Punk were asking what he’s like to work with.

On the August 13 premiere episode of AEW Rampage, Kenny Omega will defend the IMPACT World Championship against Christian Cage. The AEW Women’s Championship will also be on the line on Friday, with Red Velvet set to challenge Brit Baker.
