CM Punk’s time with AEW has come to an end, but the tenure of the ‘Real World Champion’ would have ended much sooner if Eric Bischoff had been in charge.

Punk was released last week following a week-long investigation into his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at AEW All In 2023.


On a recent edition of his “83 Weeks” podcast, Bischoff argued that AEW President Tony Khan should have parted ways with Punk following the controversial All Out 2022 media scrum. He said,

“I think it would’ve been better, in the long run, had Tony made this same decision months ago, when Punk had his meltdown at the press conference and made Tony look like a complete buffoon in the process. I would’ve pulled the trigger then, had it been me, but it wasn’t me, and I wasn’t familiar with all the circumstances.”

“At some point, you need to be a leader, and sometimes being a leader is really painful, really painful, because there’s no good decision, there’s only a correct decision.”

Punk’s post-show comments after All Out 2022 and the backstage fight with the Elite resulted in all parties involved being suspended from AEW programming.
