Tony Khan resisted the urge to put one of his biggest stars in the world title picture.
CM Punk’s booking in AEW has been done excellently, originally starting off feuding with Darby Allin, he has had several programs with the likes of Eddie Kingston and MJF. Now, he looks to become AEW World Heavyweight Champion when he faces Hangman Page this weekend at AEW Double Or Nothing.
Tony Khan held a press conference to talk about the big event. While discussing CM Punk’s ascent up the AEW ranks, Khan noted that he didn’t want to rush things. It made more sense to work his way to the top, according to a tweet from F4W Online.
“Khan thought it made sense for CM Punk to face top wrestlers when he started and not be rushed into World title scene so he could work his way up. Cites Allin, Kingston, MJF as opponents. Says Hangman Page did the same working his way up.”F4WOnline on Twitter
CM Punk has certainly bided his time until challenging for the AEW World Title and will look to take care of business. Do you think Punk is challenging for the AEW World title at the right time?
