Look, I don’t have to explain the situation. You’ve heard the rumours, seen the teases and feel the anticipation. CM Punk and Daniel Bryan appear to be on their way to All Elite Wrestling (AEW).
Speaking to the Ring Report, AEW star Paul Wight spoke about the rumours, saying he’s excited to see both men join as they have a whole lot to offer.
“I’m excited about it. I don’t really know. I’ve heard, of course, some backstage scuttlebutt. I’m friends with Daniel Bryan and CM Punk both. I think if either one of those guys made a serious commitment to come to AEW, they would blow the roof off the industry. I think both those guys are incredible talents and they have a lot to offer any company that they join.”
Wight went on to explain how both of them will fit in better and be treated much better in AEW than anywhere else. Wight added:
“Both of them will fit and like how they’re treated much more in AEW than they will anywhere else. There’s a lot more freedom for guys like Daniel Bryan and CM Punk to really excel and give the fans what they love most about them. There’s very little micromanaging in AEW. There’s a lot of trust in your professionalism and knowing who you are as a talent and what you bring to the table. There’s a lot of freedom to really amplify that and bring out the most for the fans. Personally, from where I’m sitting, I think it would be an incredible opportunity for Phil and Daniel to come here to AEW. If they do, that’s fantastic.”
CM Punk’s impending AEW debut appears to be set for the AEW Rampage show on August 20 from Chicago, while Bryan is reportedly set to arrive at the Arthur Ashe Stadium show on September 22.
