“I have nothing but positive things to say about his contributions.”

CM Punk’s AEW future has been questioned for over two months now. The former AEW World Champion delivered an uncensored diatribe against the company on the AEW completely off press conference, bashing AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks, Hangman Page and former friend Colt Cabana. While a torn triceps would keep Punk from appearing on AEW television anyway, a post-presser backstage fight with Omega and the Bucks added another nail to that coffin. This fight resulted in all four men being stripped of their championships, led to Ace Steel being fired from the company, and initiated a third-party investigation into the details of the altercation.

Speak against Within the ropesAEW President Tony Khan again declined to comment on the matter.

“The whole thing, I was especially trying not to comment on that whole situation,” Khan said. “But I wish everyone the best and hope for the best for everyone and hope for the best for AEW and the fans.”

Khan doubled down on his stance of no comment when Punk came up in particular, but offered “nothing but positives” when talking about what the Second City Saint has been doing for AEW.

“I can’t comment on that. I have nothing but positive things to say about the contributions CM Punk has made in AEW on screen and I certainly have a lot of positive things to say about the things he has made in AEW so far done.” Khan said. “But I do understand why you’re asking and I appreciate you asking.”

The present tense of Khan’s words about punk make it seem like the door isn’t quite closed when he resurfaces in AEW, but recent reports make it unlikely. Rumors of a contract buyout have been circulating for weeks now, with the reported delay coming with the non-compete clause. Some have speculated that WWE would come knocking if Punk were a free agent again.

While Punk’s next steps won’t be entirely clear until he heals from his tricep injury, which will keep him on the shelf until mid-2023, Omega and the Bucks will make their first on-air AEW appearance in over two years. months this weekend.
