CM Punk: Striking the Right Balance

Bischoff was particularly taken with the balance struck by Punk’s promo. In his view, the promo successfully acknowledged past events without dwelling on them, allowing both the wrestler and the audience to move forward.

He described it as a “perfect balance of acknowledging, not pretending it didn’t happen.” It was an impressive feat, considering the tumultuous events of the past six months.

According to Bischoff, AEW made the decision to move on from these events and this promo served as a powerful step in that direction. “I think this promo achieved, from a narrative perspective, an absolutely flawless, almost 100% balance,” he said.

He praised the execution, production, and particularly Punk’s role in creating a promo that could allow the audience to reinvest their curiosity or opinions of what happened into the present moment’‹.

He also proposed a more compelling ending, like a call to action or a mission statement, to really captivate the audience and elevate the promo from an 8.5 to a 9.5 out of 10 in his eyes’‹.
