WWE Hall of Famer Booker T doesn’t believe CM Punk cares about All Elite Wrestling.
Speaking on the latest edition of his “Hall of Fame” podcast, the five-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion gave his thoughts on the ongoing situation between CM Punk and AEW. Booker T believes Punk came to AEW to “get a big bag [money]” and doesn’t care about anything else. He said,
“I don’t think CM Punk came in there to care about AEW. I think he came in there to say what he was going to do, and that was get a big bag and have some big matches and do some cool things.”
He continued, “Do you think he really came in there to help that company or help those guys? Because the first person he worked with was Darby Allin. Darby has cooled off tremendously since that match.”
While CM Punk was expected to be the face of the new AEW Collision show, that is now said to be up in the air after Punk learned that his good friend Ace Steel wouldn’t be allowed to attend the TV tapings in-person. When Punk was notified about that on Tuesday, he was removed from the Warner Bros. Discovery press release. The company later issued a statement noting that CM Punk “is not affiliated with TNT’s AEW Collision.”
