AEW star CM Punk recently spoke to Sport1. The former WWE Superstar discussed several topics during the interview, including the upcoming Owen Hart Cup that AEW will be holding.

“I’m not sure how the tournament is going to go, but I’m for sure throwing my name in that hat. I want to be in that tournament, 100%.

“I don’t know if it’s just going to be for the younger, not so on the map high-fliers, I’m not sure how that’s going to go. We’re getting there. The AEW Title is definitely something I want.

“I look at my career as being, I haven’t wrestled for seven years, I can’t come in and challenge for a world title right away.”

CM Punk would also state that he plans on getting a match with Kenny Omega at some point, and it will be for the AEW Championship. “I look at the situation with Bryan Danielson coming in and wrestling Kenny Omega in his first match, but it wasn’t for the title.

“When I wrestle Kenny Omega, it’s gonna be for the title and I’m not going to need 30 minutes to beat him” the former WWE Champion concluded.

Whether Punk will ever get the chance to face the now injured Kenny Omega of course remains to be seen.
