AEW's Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes recently conducted an interview with Collider Live where he addressed some recent comments made by Punk in regards to their discussions on working for AEW.
Here are some excerpts from the interview:
“He did kind of make us look like dumbasses, saying we sent him a text offer. I’m sure we texted him, but we also called him. Someone also met you in a coffee shop. We made genuine efforts. But in this case, 2019, it’s been quite some time away from the ring. We gotta focus on who really wants to be on board with us versus going out and finding someone who perhaps doesn’t really want to be part of this.”
“I’m sure we’ll run into each other at some point. If he ever wanted to be part of this and he had the passion to come back to wrestling, that door is always open. No ego, no situation would ever prevent us from having him come in because the fans have never given up on Punk. Ever. It’s crazy.”
