Dax Harwood has never been shy letting his opinions known.
Since the launch of his podcast, he has let slip on a number of topics surrounding his time in AEW, most notably his relationship with CM Punk.
The former WWE Champion has not been seen in AEW since the infamous “Brawl Out” moment last year, following the ill-fated press conference following Punk’s victory over Jon Moxley at All Out 2022.
Onn his FTR podcast, Dax Harwood confirmed that he has spoken to CM Punk, and that the former AEW Champion wants to return to All Elite Wrestling, and continue to wrestle for the company.
“I will say this, the reason I’m fantasy booking that CM Punk & FTR vs. The Elite is, because, outside of Roman Reigns and you please correct me if I’m wrong, outside of Roman Reigns, and maybe Cody Rhodes, the biggest name in professional wrestling right now is CM Punk.
Definitely the biggest name in AEW,”
“So, if we want to take AEW to the next level, if we’re here to work for AEW, if we’re here to make professional wrestling better because of AEW, the way you do that is you take the biggest star that you have, and one of the biggest stars in the world, and you put them on the card, and you make money with them,” he continued.
“Also, on top of saying that, I talk to Punk almost every day, and Punk misses wrestling, that’s your headline. Punk misses wrestling, and Punk wants to come back. And he wants to give back to the fans, he wants to get back to wrestling. So I’ll leave it at that.”
Harwood previously revealed last week that CM Punk and FTR vs The Elite would be a “dream match” for the group, and could go a long way to help selling tickets for the upcoming All In 2 show.
That show will take place in Wembley Stadium later this year, with Tony Khan hoping to sell a staggering 90,000 tickets for AEW’s first show in the UK ever.
