CM Punk is once again making wrestling headlines. This time it’s because he’s got a little friendly advice for his friends in All Elite Wrestling.
Punk recently made his feature film in the new psychological thriller, Girl on the Third Floor, from first time director Travis Stevens. The former wrestler has been working hard to promote his the new horror film and in a recent interview with Screenrant, he was asked if he had any opinion on the relationship between AEW and his former employers, WWE.
Punk had this to say:
Yeah. I think AEW needs to focus on themselves and stop talking about WWE. Cody and The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, all those guys have something great going on. I just think it lessens and cheapens what they are doing when they constantly attack WWE. There hasn’t been an alternative to WWE in so very long, and I think they do a disservice to themselves when they’re trying to be the alternative but constantly bring up WWE. But I understand, when people ask you the questions during the interviews you have to answer them. But that’s just part of life. You have to learn how to navigate that. I would like them to just try to focus on their product and building it up and making it better. I think that would benefit all the fans.
Supposedly Punk tried out for an on-air backstage role with WWE last month at FOX Studios in Los Angeles. He reportedly conducted on-camera tests with Renee Young, and the performance was well received by WWE executives.
“Never say never,” said Triple H, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, when recently asked about Punk returning to the company.
