What Influenced Punk to sign with AEW?

Following last night’s episode of AEW Rampage, CM Punk and AEW President Tony Khan held a media scrum to answer a number of questions.


During the scrum, Punk noted that he respected how the AEW executives were able to keep quiet about Brodie Lee’s sickness and respect his privacy. He feels that in any other promotion, word would have gotten out easily.


“You know this goes back to one of the appealing things about AEW for me,” Punk began. “It’s a bit of a bummer of a topic. Brodie Lee passes away, right? Come to find out, he was sick, but nobody knew. Nobody said anything to anybody because it’s nobody’s business. Lot of respect for everybody back here. “Brodie, love Brodie. So, seeing that, there’s something about that, ya know? If that were anywhere else, it would be all over the internet. His poor wife would be having to deal with that. On top of already dealing with this tragic event.”
