CM Punk Says He’s In AEW To Stay, Says There’s No Backstage Drama


During a recent interview with Tony Maglio of The Wrap, AEW Superstar CM Punk commented on his current AEW run, how long he wants to stay, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On how the COVID-19 pandemic has helped conditions for wrestlers in the business: “It’s 100% better. I don’t gotta drive into a town and try to check into a hotel at 4:30 in the morning and find out there’s a clown convention in town and all the hotels are booked up.”

On how wrestling schedules are better now: “The pandemic and the reset kind of made it to where the wrestlers have that better schedule and they have more say over– this is easier and this is the way it should be. You can’t treat us like cattle, and that’s definitely an appeal.”

On when we can start seeing him in big name matchups in AEW: “I’m an artist painting my picture. Let me paint my picture. What I’m doing is very calculated, it’s very thought out. I’m here to stay. Trust me, in 10 years, people will be talking about what we have with AEW. It’s such a just hang out, wait and see, and have fun and enjoy the ride kind of thing. Everything is fluid: dates, contracts — literally everything. This has been the best working experience I’ve ever had in the wrestling business, and if there is an issue on either end, everybody just talks. There’s no drama, it’s fantastic.”
