Did CM Punk Want OUT Of AEW?

The plot thickens.

Whilst the wrestling world eagerly anticipates CM Punk’s reaction to his firing, it may come as a surprise to hear that Punk may have wanted out of his AEW deal.

According to Dave Meltzer on Observer Radio, Punk wanted out when he discovered that The Elite had re-signed with AEW:

“I can’t say because I can’t get into his brain, but yes, there were a lot of people that thought that when the contract was signed with The Young Bucks, Omega and Page that he wanted out and that something was going to happen. He thought that because the ratings for Collision were so much lower, I think the one was the bad one was when Cole and MJF came the ratings skyrocketed and when they weren’t back they went back down. That was the one that established that Max and Adam Cole are the draws in the company. It’s going to go down without him, he was the biggest draw on that show.”

If this report is indeed accurate, then Punk may not kick up a fuss, and he may leave AEW peacefully. However, if Punk believes that he’s been wronged, then we know that Punk is prone to holding grudges, and there are potentially legal routes that Punk could go down to air his grievances towards AEW.
