Cody: “The fans have never given up on CM Punk”
Cody Rhodes comments on CM Punk in AEW:
“I’ve been very honest about that door remaining opened. The fans have never given up on CM Punk and if he wanted to be part of AEW we would do everything in our power to make him part of it.
But I have 25 to 35 brand new stars. Guys like Jungle Boy. Guys like MJF. Ladies like Kylie Rae and Britt Baker. If I was to spend all my time in trying to recruit just one CM Punk I would be doing a disservice to them….
[But] that door will forever remain open to CM Punk. He was very good to me in OVW. He was a great person to learn from in the ring. I had a good relationship with him. That door will remain open, but for All Out the main focus for me is Hangman Page and Chris Jericho to determine the very first AEW World Champion.”
