While talking about the popularity of certain wrestlers depending upon the geography. Punk took two WWE legends for reference, one was ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and the other was Hulk Hogan.

“Hulk Hogan is a bigger star than Steve Austin,’ but then you look at business periods, and eras, and box office receipts and all that other stuff. I think Hogan’s a piece of sh*t, so obviously, I’m gonna be like, ‘Steve Austin, yay.’

“What it what it feels like. I don’t have the words to describe what it feels like. What I know I feel like is I want to help everybody on the AEW roster f*cking get there. That’s what I know.” Punk said.

We all know Punk is not the kind of superstar who sugarcoats every sentence that he speaks. With his return to the pro-wrestling business after seven long years, Punk is making sure that other talents get the chance now.
