But it is quite clear that AEW is not messing around. They have already managed to sign some of the biggest names in the history of professional wrestling including the likes of CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson and many more. More big names are still linked with the promotion.
The arrival of Punk is the biggest shock in the world of professional wrestling. WWE had been trying to get him in their show from quite a long time. It was more than seven years since The Best in the World went out of the world of professional wrestling. AEW is almost the more superior show after getting him.
Eddie Kingston who was vastly considered as an Indie darling by the professional wrestling fans recently spoke to Inside The Ropes where he talked about CM Punk joining the All Elite Wrestling promotion. He said;
“I found out because you hear whispers. Certain people who have, let’s say, certain stroke or control move also into the whispers, and I went ‘oh it’s happening’ without them telling me it’s happening, oh it’s happening. I got super excited. I’d known Punk, ooh man, I first met Punk when I was 21 when he came to Chikara to do a special seminar, so I’d known him since then.
“He’s one of the rare guys that has a name, that the name brings people in. Nowadays it’s AEW, that name, or WWE, that name, NWA that name. But when you put CM Punk, you’re coming for CM Punk. He’s become like an old-school name. I love it that he’s here. When I look in his eyes I see old Punk.
“I see someone who is hungry again, maybe not hungry again but hungrier, and happier and mentally I can just see in his eyes he is in a better place than he was when I saw him maybe while he was with WWE at the end. I ran into him and he just didn’t seem like himself. Now he seems better than himself, you know what I mean?”
