On a recent edition of the “Maggie and Perloff” podcast, former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker discussed CM Punk’s unfortunate firing from AEW, noting that the Second City Saint will always be a part of the company’s history.
Punk was fired from AEW following his backstage altercation with Jack Perry at AEW All In 2023.
Baker said, “CM Punk coming back to wrestling was one of the most historical things in All Elite Wrestling history and always will be. You can’t take that out of the wrestling books. I’m really thankful we got to work with CM Punk. I learned some stuff from him, he was always really helpful and willing to work with younger talent. It didn’t work out, it wasn’t a fit, but it’s always going to be part of the AEW story. It’s just that chapter is closed now. Everyone wishes him well, we hope and think he wishes AEW well too. It just didn’t work out. At the end of the day, how cool was it that CM Punk was in wrestling again for AEW and got to wrestle in Chicago again?”
When asked if she thought Punk would show up somewhere else, Baker said,
“I don’t know where he’s at mentally. I think wrestlers always have that itch. Once it’s in your blood, it’s in there, and no matter how much you want to stay away, it’s hard to stay away. He came back after seven years. I think if the time, place, and company is right, I think he would.”
