CM Punk recently did an interview with ESPN where he talked about AEW. The interview is yet to be released, but it seems like he had a lot to say. Some of the quotes that came out of the interview caused some backlash for some of the members of The Elite. These were the quotes that caused some fans to attack Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks on social media:
“I know they like to talk about me a lot. If I text Matt Jackson, ‘Hey, have a great show tonight,’ which I did when they had their big show in Vegas, that somehow turns into Tony Khan telling people he has a great relationship with me. I’ve said in the past I’ve talked to them, but nothing ever came of anything.”CM Punk
“I almost don’t even know how to reply to them sometimes, because if I reply, they do interviews and are like, “Oh yeah, I just talked to Punk.” I’m kind of damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I always think if somebody wants to do business with me, they can come talk to me. Texting offers isn’t really a way to do good business, at least.”CM Punk
Cody Rhodes went to Twitter to address the situation. He said that Punk was probably misquoted and that he never offered him a contract via text message. And he also said that he wouldn’t be surprised if CM Punk returned to WWE.
Marc Raimondi who works as a reporter for ESPN replied to Rhodes tweet and said that CM Punk was not misquoted.
