Latest On CM Punk

CM Punk has been a popular topic the past few weeks. It has been announced that he will appear at the Starrcast III event, the weekend of the upcoming All Out pay per view. It has lead many to speculate that Punk will be a part of AEW. Over the past few days, Punk, Cody Rhodes, and Sean Waltman have all weighed in on the possibilities of Punk joining AEW.

Punk On AEW:

I know they like to talk about me a lot. If I text Matt Jackson, “Hey, have a great show tonight,” which I did when they had their big show in Vegas, that somehow turns into Tony Khan telling people he has a great relationship with me. I’ve said in the past I’ve talked to them, but nothing ever came of anything. I think if there’s an expectation, it’s purely been built by them. My silence to some fans means something. They’re trying to read the tea leaves, but there’s nothing to read. I even feel like talking about it may feel like I’m putting some sort of negative slant on it, but I’m really not. The fact is I know they’ve teased me ad nauseam, and if anybody is gonna get mad it’s at me because I don’t show up. Well then, I don’t know what to tell you. That’s one of those things that’s none of my business.”
Rhodes On Punk:

Sean Waltman On Punk During His Latest Podcast:

“Well, that’s a hell of a score for Starrcast and I was surprised he wasn’t there for the first one. I would be surprised if he doesn’t show up in AEW. I have said this (before). I have been saying this since they announced AEW. I wouldn’t be surprised if he shows up on the very first (TV) show.”

Jason’s Take

I don’t expect Punk to ever return to a full time wrestling role. Would he have a lot to offer the business today if he joined AEW? I would think so, from both working with younger talent, to being a recognizable on air personality. While I don’t think Punk ever would return, one never can truly say never in the wrestling business.

WWE Expanding To Japan?

WWE has always been looking to expand their global outreach. One of the markets they are looking to tap into is the Japanese market. Dave Meltzer recently noted that WWE officials have met with both the Dragon Gate and the Stardom promotions.

Jason’s Take

You can say what you want to about him, but HHH seems to have his finger on the pulse of the business. I would not be surprised to see a performance center or NXT Japan to start in the very near future.

Latest On Jimmy Uso Arrest
