Jim Cornette blasts Tony Khan for not signing CM Punk to AEW, He expressed bewilderment at Khan not going all out for the former WWE Champion.
In the world of wrestling, there are very few men and women today who can move the needle. Former CM Punk is one of them. After years of maintaining that he was done with wrestling, he has finally hinted at the possibility of a return if presented with an intriguing storyline and money of course.
It is unlikely that either of Punk or Vince will want to ever work together again. That leaves AEW as the only company who can provide Punk with both of the elements he desires for a return. However, a working relationship between the two is yet to be established which has left Jim Cornette baffled,
“It wasn’t a revelatory statement” Jim Cornette said on The Experience podcast, while discussing CM Punk. “Nor a big shocking occurrence. He said he would basically, boiling it down, he would take a sh*tload of money and something new that he was interested in doing as well.”

He then ranted against Tony Khan for his failure to recruit CM Punk.
“The son of a billionaire with a national cable television show just got in the wrestling business. He made a bunch of indie guys that never had it and never will as happy as school girls with shiny new vibrators. But he can’t get CM Punk!? He can’t make CM Punk happy!? Nobody can think of an idea that CM Punk would be interested in, that would intrigue him enough to get involved in this!?”
If bringing up the private habits of underage school girls wasn’t enough, he then criticized Khan for bringing in aging stars while letting the biggest free agent be.
“If there’s a fish out there that has the Goldilocks and the Three Bears combination; not too hot, not too cold, just right in-between? They’ve been on TV recently and not been beaten into powder or been portrayed in a negative light that we are now trying to take the guy and make him into a top star?” he continued.
“Or is he the icon from 30 years ago that they bring back and make all the current guys look bad? Because even though the icon can’t get in the ring and can’t go anymore, he’s still more over as a bigger star than the rest of their roster? CM Punk doesn’t fit any of them. He’s the right combination. He was a huge star in the biggest company in the world just several years ago, not 30.”
There is merit to Cornette’s argument. If there’s one man that help AEW cross the 1 million mark and help them build from there it’s CM Punk. We just wished he hadn’t said it in such a Jim Cornette way.
