AEW & Young Bucks Want CM Punk, But Say The Timing Isn't Right For Him

AEW and The Young Bucks have their eye on CM Punk.

The former WWE Champion hasn't wrestled in well over five years, and remains a hot topic of conversation. With All In and All Out both in Chicago, many fans speculated the native Punk could end up appearing on the shows or in AEW. Young Bucks spoke to Chris Van Vliet recently, and were very transparent about their desire to have him.

Nick: We'll be honest. Of course, we would love him to come to our company. At this time, I just don't think he wants to.

Matt: When he wants to come back to wrestling, it'll be his decision. (I don't think it's a when) It's an "if."

Nick: Matt talks to him all the time about it but the timing is not right, I guess.

Matt: Professional wrestling is the most demanding thing in the world. You can't just find yourself back in it one day and be like 'okay, I guess I'm doing this again.' You really have to want to do it and that's up to him.

Punk has made a few appearances in pro wrestling since leaving in January 2014, but all of them were under a mask. Otherwise, he's had a rough run as an MMA fighter.
