CM Punk Comments on Adam Cole and Daniel Bryan's AEW Debut
It was also rumored for several weeks that Daniel Bryan, now known as Bryan Danielson, will make his AEW Debut. However, nobody knew that he would debut at AEW All Out.
Adam Cole, the famous WWE superstar, also joined AEW at AEW All Out. Adam Cole joined The Elite as soon as he debuted. CM Punk took part in a post-show media scrum. He was asked about AEW’s competition during that. “Obviously, I think it’s going to be very impactful.
I’m not personally in the business of war, for competing. I know who the competition is and who the competition isn’t. To me, we focus on ourselves. We focus on the talent we have, and we focus on the people in the building and I think that’s how we grow.
“It’s not about throwing stones, and I know TNT loves ratings and I know everybody’s gonna look at stuff and compare the two. For a company that’s only been around for two years, I think they’re doing great, and if you’re competing with somebody on another night that’s got a 30-year head start, well, that’s fine, but to me, our competition is our audience”.
CM Punk was then asked to compare the debut to that of Kevin Nash and Scott Hall debuting in WCW in 1996. “And as long as we keep them engaged, and keep them happy, and to bring it back around, that’s what we’re doing,” Punk said.
“I’m not [Hulk] Hogan. I’m not [Randy] Savage. Daniel Bryan and Adam Cole, they’re not The Outsiders. I see the parallels. This is totally different, and I’ll go ahead and say it, and people can quote me and they’ll be pissed off about it. To me, this is bigger”.
