AEW’s Dax Harwood talks backlash to his positive CM Punk comments

Dax Harwood spoke incredibly highly of CM Punk on the debut episode of his FTR podcast a few weeks ago. His extensive remarks about Punk’s behavior backstage and his doubts about the public facts surrounding the “Brawl Out” incident. He closed things off with a plea for Punk to eventually return to AEW programming, saying “This is my plea for all four guys (Punk, The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega). Please find a way to make it work. If we can make it work, we can set up the future of professional wrestling for a long time and we can change the course of professional wrestling for a very long time. If you think about it, selflessly, we’re already doing this 20-30 years down the line so boys and girls can earn a living.”

The episode caused quite a stir within AEW, to the point where Harwood covered it in this week’s episode. He said, “Everyone tweets me and texts me and that’s all I read. Yeah, apparently some people in the AEW lock room weren’t happy with my podcast, and that’s okay if they were. But to me, it’s it’s funny that you know I talked to you I already told you before this stuff came out I told you I had at least 20 text messages from the guys and girls I work with telling me how much they love love the podcast and how much they enjoyed expressing my thoughts and feelings and how I struggle. They also enjoy the fact that I didn’t play on either side and that I was just telling the truth.”

“So for some people who are mad at me I wonder why they are upset because all I did was show a company that I have a crush on, or believe in, in a positive light,” continued he. (h/t “All I did was show a few people who were in the news in a positive light. Because at my core I believe they’re all good people. But I think some people weren’t happy that maybe I was the true human expressed.” be that CM is Punk, or maybe they were unhappy that I was expressing the true human beings that were The Young Bucks or Kenny or whoever. Maybe that’s it.

Harwood also confirmed that he and Cash Wheeler have filed for leave from AEW programming. Their contracts with the promotion expire in April.
