Cody Says CM Punk Made AEW Look Like Dumbasses, Punk In AEW

All Elite Wrestling Executive Vice President Cody Rhodes and his wife, Brandi Rhodes, who is the company’s Chief Brand Officer, was recently part of Collider Live, where they spoke about the chances of CM Punk coming to AEW, the offer made to CM Punk and his thoughts on the interview CM Punk had with ESPN back in July.

Cody Rhodes was first asked what he think are the chances of CM Punk ever coming to AEW.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

“50/50? I really liked Phil, and he was really nice to me when I was in OVW as kind of a leader.” “He was a locker room leader, and then he had such a successful run in WWE. And I had never really had an adversarial relationship with him. I know he doesn’t like when we discuss him, but I think I even explained it to him once; a lot of people ask us about him. I don’t want to say, ‘No comment.’ I think he — I just don’t think he knows perhaps — and perhaps he doesn’t want to be involved in wrestling anymore. If that’s the case, no big deal. You gave us your body. You gave us this body of work, and CM Punk was an awesome wrestler.”

CM Punk previously mentioned that he only received a text offer from AEW Officials to join the company and that an offer sent via text message isn’t really a way to do good business, but according to Cody Rhodes, more than a text message was sent to CM Punk about possibly joining the company.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

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.”

Cody Rhodes then said that if CM Punk is interested in joining All Elite Wrestling anytime in the future, then the door is always open for him.

This is what Cody Rhodes said:

“I didn’t really communicate with him further after that.” “I expected to see him at Starrcast. He gave this great live show that he did with Mike Johnson, where he was really great with his answers. 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 comeback 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.”
