In CM Punk's now infamous deleted Instagram story where he called out the reporting on his foot injury and storyline with Jon Moxley, he called Chris Jericho a "stooge." Jericho reportedly called Punk a locker room cancer after AEW All Out.

Appearing on The Mark Madden Show, Jericho was asked if Punk would return to the company.

"I'm not," Jericho said when Madden noted that Jericho probably isn't on Punk's Christmas card list, "but I wasn't on Scott Hall's Christmas card list or I wasn't on Eric Bischoff's Christmas card list. You don't have to be best friends to co-exist. To me, that's not really my wheelhouse. I'm not in charge of that. I'm sure there will be some answers to that pretty quickly, I would assume, either way. To us, AEW is going to thrive and survive with or without him. We'll see what happens."

Punk drew headlines during WrestleMania weekend when he sent Dax Harwood a text during the FTR live show saying he missed the fans.
