Chris Jericho Says CM Punk’s Long Absence Has Led To A ‘Mythology’ Surrounding It

By | August 6, 2021

Chris Jericho is a true veteran in the pro wrestling world as he has competed all over the world in various promotions, including WWE. He has competed for over three decades and has worked with the best of the best in the pro wrestling world.

One of the biggest topics of discussion in the pro wrestling world right now is about the debut of CM Punk in AEW, which only seems to have gained more steam with each passing day.

While speaking to Inside the Ropes, Chris Jericho talked about CM Punk making his way to AEW. Jericho made it clear he wants Punk to come to AEW and then added that due to Punk’s long absence from pro wrestling has led to a mythology surrounding him.

“Well, I mean, the short answer is, ‘Of course.’ I mean, he’s one of the few guys out there that has has this mythology surrounding him because he hasn’t wrestled so long.

“Take Punk out of the equation. Sting is with us now. Edge is back in WWE. Christian is with us. But you take, other than that, guys who haven’t wrestled for a long time, he’s probably at the top of the list, unless you’re going to throw Steve Austin in there and you know Steve’s not going to come back.

“So, it would create a huge buzz that would add to the already huge buzz that we have, and I think just the fact that 12,000 tickets sold at the United Center without one name even being announced, or one match even being announced, shows just how much anticipation there is for all of these things. So, yeah, we’ll see what happens.”

We will have to wait and see how the debut of CM Punk will turn out to be and whether he will be booked properly or not.
