I guess he isn’t a fan. Ever since the announcement of AEW, fans have been trying to find a way to get CM Punk involved, even if Punk himself does not seem interested. It seems like a natural fit except for that one detail. Punk has not wrestled in over five years and there is a strong chance he never will again. It is now to the point where Punk is seemingly not even sure of what fans are talking about.
In a recent clip on Twitter, Ring of Honor wrestler Marty Scurll tries to recruit AEW wrestler Joey Janela to join his Villain Enterprises group. Janela declines, because he is under contract to AEW. Scurll isn’t sure what’s going on, asking “What the **** is AEW?” Punk responded on Twitter, saying he asks the same thing anytime anyone asks him about it as well.
The initial video:
And the reaction:
I ask myself this same question, like, every time someone tweets me.

Opinion: Can you blame Punk for going to this much sarcasm? Fans have been asking him about it time after time and just will not accept no for an answer. Is it that hard to believe that a forty year old Punk who has been out of the ring for nearly five and a half years just does not want to wrestle anymore? I’m sure the door would be open if he wanted to and maybe he would, but how many times does he have to say no?
Do you think Punk will wrestle again? Do you want him to? Let us know in the comments below.
