Jim Cornette, the outspoken wrestling personality, recently shared his thoughts on Tony Khan’s decision to fire CM Punk following his physical altercation with Jack Perry at AEW All In. Cornette believes that Punk leaving AEW is ultimately for the best.
“So again, if Perry hadn’t mouthed off and just gone and done his garbage pre-show match, then nothing would have happened. And if nothing would have happened, then Punk would be on the pay-per-view in the United Center in Chicago, and people wouldn’t be all over Twitter and all over Chicago and all over the wrestling world calling Tony Khan a dickless pussy.
“He’s brought this on himself, and sometimes the bad guys win. It’s actually a win for everybody except the fans and Tony. Punk doesn’t have to put up with these children anymore. He’s old, he’s tired, he’s hurting. He works with children. Well, you don’t have to work with children. You don’t have to get hurt anymore from working with the children. He’ll still be old. And maybe he’ll get better sleep. So he’s going to improve his situation.”
Jim Cornette’s comments were reported by TJR Wrestling.
It’s no secret that Jim Cornette has never been one to hold back his opinions, and this recent statement is no exception. While some may agree with Cornette’s assessment, others may have a different perspective on the situation.
CM Punk, a highly popular and controversial figure in professional wrestling, has always been known for his outspoken nature. His return to the wrestling world after a long hiatus was met with great excitement and anticipation from fans. However, the incident with Jack Perry, also known as Jungle Boy, has now led to his departure from AEW.
While Tony Khan’s decision to release CM Punk may have been a difficult one, it is clear that he is prioritizing the well-being and professionalism of his roster. Physical altercations have no place in a professional environment, and it is important for a company like AEW to maintain a safe and respectful working environment.
CM Punk’s departure from AEW may come as a disappointment to fans who were looking forward to seeing him compete in upcoming events. However, it is important to remember that professional wrestling is a physically demanding industry, and injuries can take a toll on performers over time.
Jim Cornette’s comments about CM Punk no longer having to work with “children” may be seen as controversial by some. While it is true that younger talent often has less experience and may make mistakes, it is also important to foster an environment where wrestlers can learn and grow.
Ultimately, the decision for CM Punk to leave AEW was likely a difficult one for both parties involved. It is now up to CM Punk to decide what his next steps will be in his wrestling career. Whether he chooses to retire or pursue opportunities elsewhere, his impact on the industry will undoubtedly be remembered.
As always, the world of professional wrestling is filled with twists and turns, and this situation with CM Punk is just another example. Fans will have to wait and see how this story develops and what the future holds for all parties involved.
