CM Punk Addresses AEW Rumors, Shares Thoughts On Darby Allin

CM Punk recently appeared as a guest on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast for an in-depth interview to promote the season premiere of “Heels” on Starz.

During his appearance on the popular program, the longtime pro wrestling star spoke about rumors of his AEW debut at Rampage: The First Dance, his thoughts on Darby Allin and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On if he will be at the United Center for AEW Rampage: The First Dance: “Um, when was that? Let me look at my calendar. When did you say it was, the 20th? I think I actually might be doing a screening, this isn’t confirmed yet so I probably shouldn’t blast this out everywhere, but we’re talking about doing a screening of episode 3 of ‘Heels’ at a AMC [theater] in Chicago, and that’s one of the dates that has been proposed. So, um, hope to see everybody there.”

On Darby Allin’s “Best in the World’ reference on AEW Dynamite: “Hey listen, ‘Best In the World’, that could be anybody. That’s [Daniel] Bryan, right? That’s my assumption. I hear ‘Best In the World’ and I think Bryan.”

On his thoughts about Darby Allin: “Um, I think Darby Allin’s great. I think everybody in the wrestling world needs to never do a dive ever again because you can’t do it better than Darby. You know, when I approached my in-ring stuff, I could do a moonsault… it sucks, and why would I do one because everybody on the roster can do one better than me, so it’s just like, why bother? If you watch Darby Allin wrestle and watch him do one of those dives, he actually looks like he’s trying to murder somebody. So, it doesn’t get any better than that. Stop doing dives, everybody.”
