On the latest edition of his Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Konnan discussed CM Punk’s rumored return to AEW and what it could mean for Tony Khan’s promotion as a whole.
According to the AAA booker, instead of avoiding the backstage tensions between Punk and The Elite, AEW should actually present the Punk/Elite feud on-screen to attract viewers.
Punk, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega, Ace Steel, and a bunch of other talents were suspended due to their involvement in the backstage altercation at AEW All Out 2022.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On how AEW leadership should address the situation: “I would just basically tell them, ‘I think we are all in it to make money, we are past being marks for ourselves, are you here to make money or not? Can we fix this or not? Who else are you going to make this kind of money with?’ … This is going to raise your stock, wherever you look at it this is something that needs to happen.”
On the consequences of splitting the roster as a precedent: “Once you do it, now you’ve rattled a whole hornet’s nest and everybody is going to say, ‘Well they did it, I don’t want to be on this show with this guy, and I don’t want to wrestle this guy,’ and now you’ve lost command of everything.”
