Yesterday we reported that Pro wrestling vet Jim Cornette had expressed his opinion on how AEW has been using CM Punk. Cornette was very critical of how the company has been having Punk wrestle more on Rampage instead of Dynamite. It now looks like Cornette is not the only one curious about the booking.
While speaking to the New York Post, AEW President Tony Khan was asked about Punk, only wrestling on AEW Rampage so far and not AEW Dynamite. Khan revealed that it was due to CM Punk helping bring more viewers to AEW Rampage.
He’s given a great lift. When he’s wrestled they’ve been the high quarter hours (ratings) and his appearances have helped lift the audience and we’ve seen on Friday nights that people do want to see him, even this past week when there was great competition from baseball.
We will have to see if Punk can continue to move the needle tonight when he goes head to head with Matt Sydel.
