CM Punk Was Reportedly Tony Khan’s First Pick For All Elite Wrestling

Apr 22, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

When AEW was first announced it was revealed that Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Chris Jericho and more would be involved with the promotion, but apparently AEW President Tony Khan had a different name in mind for his first pick.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that CM Punk was Tony Khan’s first pick for AEW before Chris Jericho, The Young Bucks or anyone else.

Meltzer also noted that if Punk decides he wants to wrestle he can make “really good money.”
