CM Punk Comments On Giving Back During His Current Run In AEW

CM Punk recently spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, “The Best in the World” spoke about giving back in AEW, the potential of the company and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On giving back in AEW: “This is really about the soul, the spirit, and the art of professional wrestling. It reminds me of how I started. It’s why guys like me and Bryan Danielson would drive 15 hours to get to a show, and barely get gas money in return, to wrestle in front of 300 rabid fans in Philadelphia. That’s what this is, with TNT behind it. We’re the punk rock band that used to play at your bowling alley. It has that spirit and love of the art. It’s a place where you can make a living and learn the craft.”

On AEW’s potential: “AEW got Bryan Danielson, a once-in-generation talent, to come here, and they got me to come back after all the time I was gone, and then you have AEW doing the impossible, making a deal with Martha Hart to produce Owen Hart T-shirts, action figures and they’re even going to put him in video games. That speaks volumes to what AEW is and the potential of how much bigger it can get.”
