- CM Punk believes there is an overlap between WWE fans and AEW fans. Doesn't understand the issue in playing to wrestling fans.

- CM Punk says he thinks pretty far ahead in the future about what he wants to do and who he wants to work with but that is because he still wants to prove that he can do it all and while he does have a long-term plan, plans change and he is receptive to that.

- CM Punk says one of them has been adjusting to the AEW ring because it is a custom ring.

Hangman Page

- Hangman says he feels fortunate to have befriended Kenny Omega and believes he beat the best wrestler in the world.

Tony Khan

- Tony Khan says Chris Jericho was always planned to be the first AEW Champion over Hangman Page, and he knew long ago who his first four champions would be.

- Tony Khan says his father bought the Four Seasons from a Saudi man, not the government, and is not comparable to WWE's ongoing relationships with the Saudi government. There is no ongoing relationship between the Khans and the Saudi government. He wanted to clarify that.
