CM Punk Wants To Team With Bryan Danielson For AEW Tag Titles

Former WWE Superstar and current AEW Star CM Punk recently appeared on an episode of AEW Unrestricted podcast, where he discussed several topics such as when he seriously started to think about returning to wrestling, why he chose “Cult of Personality” as his entrance theme music and who he would like to team with if ever he decides to go after the AEW World Tag Team Titles.

Below are the highlights:

On when he seriously started to think about returning to wrestling:

“At some point when I was free and clear of all the lawsuits that people filed against me. I think there’s a point where that stops, I’m free and clear, and I’m like, sweet. The healing can begin. It coincided with the rise of AEW and stuff like that. At that point, it was probably a matter of time. I don’t know if there was like one ah-ha moment that made me go, ‘Yea, that’s the place.’ I already said that the Brodie tribute show, and the way the Brodie stuff was handled was so classy and not what I’m used to. It made me raise an eyebrow and go, ‘Hmm. Interesting.’”

On why he chose “Cult of Personality” as his entrance theme music:

“I have been fortunate enough to be friends with a lot of great bands, a lot of talented artists, and to use a lot of those songs for entrance music. Cult of Personality, I think, transcends everything and I’m proud of this. The name CM Punk is forever tied to the band Living Color and Cult of Personality. It’s been a common thread throughout my entire life. The whole reason I used that song in Ring of Honor was because I loved that song. I thought it was great ring entrance music and for the character and everything. That was the song my little league team would play after we won games in 1989. It’s been with me for a while. I know all those guys. I was just with them at Riot Fest.”

On who he would like to team with if ever he decides to go after the AEW World Tag Team Titles:

“I think there’s a lot of good answers to that question, but selfishly, I want to tag with Bryan Danielson. I don’t know if anybody has ever spoken about this before, but before I left Ring of Honor for WWE, we were thinking what’s next for CM Punk after winning the title and all that stuff. There was a thing we were kicking around with maybe me and American Dragon tagging up, just black boots, black trunks, kind of like a Bockwinkel and Stevens for a new era. Of course, we were both like, ‘Yea, that sounds like something we could really sink our teeth into.’ I still think there’s potential to do that.”
