Cody Rhodes addresses CM Punk’s AEW comments

    Believe me, I know Punk alone won’t fix a thing, but him being back might be enough of a distraction to keep people watching a garbage product. Vince’s solution to everything is put a bandage on it. Vince doesn’t want to change; he wants people to enjoy his vision of what he thinks wrestling should be.

    I don’t think Punk alone would be enough to fix the product. He means something to a certain section of hard core wrestling fans, but he doesn’t have the mainstream appeal of a Cena type.

    Even here, Cody feels the need to bring up WWE.

    I dunno. Punk, whether you like him or not, is usually a straight talker.
    And this is not the first time he has said they have offered him things via text as they did the same thing when they were putting on All in.

    I would think that as these guys are not traditional business men and think that as they are wrestlers they can deal with people in a more relaxed way, that they would indeed text offers to people. I can especially see the Bucks doing that.
    It would probably work with a lot of guys, but everyone knows how Punk roles, and he would most certainly want a more professional approach.

    Once football starts, WWE may have no choice BUT to bring Punk back. Cena’s gone, they can’t do legends shows every week, and Fox will find a way out of their obligation if the ratings don’t increase. I’m not saying I necessarily want Punk back, he’s a bit entitled and a not very good person in real life, but WWE needs to do something and I don’t know if Bischoff and Heyman can fix the product when every star on the roster has been overexposed, booked into oblivion, or both. Just look at the entire Raw tag division. Tell me there’s any way to rehab it. The Lucha House Party are basically jobbers. Hawkins and Ryder aren’t credible. The Revival are barely credible. The Usos are beyond stale and are overexposed. AOP is MIA. The Viking Raiders are apparently going to wrestle jobbers forever.
