CM Punk on why so many are jumping from WWE to AEW

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar CM Punk recently spoke to Sport1. The straight edge star of All Elite Wrestling discussed several topics during the interview, including why he believes there are so many Superstars leaving WWE and heading to AEW.

‘It’s the perfect storm. For 20 years, fans have only been able to see one product at a certain level, so something new is good from the outset.

“As a wrestler, you want to be with AEW because you have a lot of creative freedom there. That doesn’t mean that you can do what you want there.

“But everyone can bring in ideas, nobody is afraid of getting a negative echo. You can work here, have fun, and earn good money with it.

“I still have in my head how many people have been criticized for not going together, including me. ’˜Do you want to have fun here or do you want to make money?’ That was the question and I always answered, ’˜Why shouldn’t it actually be possible to bring both under one roof?

“We can make a lot of money and have fun, and the fact that this is happening at AEW attracts many wrestlers.’
