All In is only a little more than a week away now, and matches and wrestlers are still being announced for the event. However, wrestling fans have been wondering if they could see the Chicago native, CM Punk, make an appearance on September 1st.
In an interview with Wrestling Inc. Cody had a chance to address the CM Punk question.
I mean, I talked to [Punk] just vaguely. He even at one point said, ‘Nobody’s asked me — hey here’s how much we’ll pay you and here’s who you’ll wrestle.’
Matt Jackson actually made a full offer or full pitch for his services, and I think Punk is focused on the MMA element of his career. One of the reasons we didn’t first come out and say, ‘Here’s who we want you to wrestle,’ is because I think we just wanted him to be a part of the event for a lot of fans, he’s captured their imagination even with the amount of time he’s been gone. He has a mythical presence to them. I thought it would be good for him to connect with them, but that’s me, you know?
So while an offer has been made to CM Punk, it looks like the Voice of the Voiceless is content staying away from a wrestling ring.
