CM Punk Talks AEW Dream Matches


This week CM Punk would speak with Abe Kanan of Chicago Radio ahead of AEW Dynamite last night in the Second City, and the topic of dream matches came up.

Punk would run down the list of current AEW wrestlers he’d love to step in the ring with, including former champions in the promotion. Punk would reveal:

“Cody is a big one. I’d really like to mess with Cody and his fans. ‘Mr. I don’t want to be a bad guy,’ I’ll tell you what you’re going to be. The Young Bucks, I’m always backstage pitching ideas for me and a tag partner vs. The Young Bucks. I’ve always wanted to tag with Bryan Danielson. I’ll fight him too, what about Jon Moxley? I’ve never wrestled Jon Moxley, I’ve wrestled Dean Ambrose.”

Punk would then reveal that he hopes to wrestle former AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, but admitted he doesn’t know his situation right now, and said:

“Would love it. I don’t know what’s going on with Kenny though, I read what everybody else reads and I hear about surgery, and I don’t know how positive or true that is. I just know he’s banged up for sure and I’m glad he’s taking some time off because when CM Punk does wrestle Kenny Omega, I want him to be 100%.”

Punk would then put over young up-and-comer Hook, admitting that the memes are true, and he does in fact fear him, and he would add:

“There are so many dudes, how about Hook? That kid, for the first time, someone’s making memes saying ‘CM Punk fears Hook,’ yeah, I do 100%. I’m 43 years old, he’s like 16, I don’t want to get in trouble. You go to jail for that sort of thing nowadays.”

Punk would then reveal that he’d love to wrestle inside the home of his beloved Chicago Cubs MLB team, Wrigley Field, and revealed who he would like to face if AEW were to hold an event there. He said:

“That would be the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my career hands down. I don’t know if they have ever done wrestling at Wrigley. I would very much like to wrestle at Wrigley, Soldier Field. I think Chicago is always a hot market for AEW and I do think those are things in the realm of possibility. You just have to find the right match and build a card around it.”
