Chris Jericho is a big supporter of former WWE Champion CM Punk potentially joining AEW (All Elite Wrestling).
Punk and Jericho have shared the ring on several different occasions in WWE. The possibility of signing one of the biggest free agents in the pro wrestling business right now would be a great addition to the already loaded AEW roster.
While doing a recent interview with Express to promote the upcoming AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view event, Jericho made it known that he thinks AEW is a perfect place for Punk.
“It’s a pretty obvious answer,” Jericho responded. “I don’t know if he wants to wrestle, but if he decides to, I think AEW would be the perfect place for him.”
After dealing with injuries and not wanting to wrestle anymore, Punk decided to walk out of the WWE on the Monday following the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event in 2014. He hasn’t worked a wrestling match since.
AEW holds their first show pretty soon. Double or Nothing, which is the inaugural show promoted by the company, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019.
