AEW’s next big event will be ALL OUT from the Sears Centre in Chicago, Illinois.
With All Elite Wrestling returning to Chicago, and along with that came the big announcement that CM Punk will be appearing at Starrcast, the rumor mill has been churning about whether or not he will show up at ALL OUT on August 31st.
CM Punk recently spoke to ESPN, and discussed his relationship with Cody Rhodes and the rest of the members of The Elite. Punk said that he recently got a text message from Cody, but added that he never knows how to respond to texts from anyone in The Elite at this point. He added that everything he says to them seems to get blown out of proportion.
CM Punk stated:
“The last thing I got — I got a text from Cody [Rhodes]. And again, I almost don’t even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, “Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk.” I’m kind of damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn’t really a way to do good business, at least.”
It was then that Punk was asked if he had actually been sent an offer via text. Punk confirmed that he actually did get an offer texted to him roughly a month ago.
“It was texted through three people and an offer came in through text. This is like a month ago, maybe.
I think it was just a general offer. I never could have done the last one in Vegas [Double or Nothing], because I was in California for CFFC.”
While Punk didn’t comment either way on his response to the offer that was sent to him, AEW Superstar Chris Jericho previously stated that the company doesn’t need CM Punk.
We will have to wait and see whether or not Punk shows up at ALL OUT, but that of course isn’t going to stop the rumors from circulating.
