On the Mat Men Pro Wrestling Podcast, Andrew Zarian talked about Daniel Bryan and CM Punk joining AEW. Bryan has reportedly signed with the promotion while Punk has been in talks with AEW.
During it, he talked about Vince McMahon’s reaction to AEW getting the two stars.
“There’s a lot of rumors that Vince is very upset and management is very angry, how could they these two go? I think Daniel Bryan is the disappointment for them, CM Punk not so much. There’s no buzz that I’m hearing coming from the office side that ‘we f’d up by not signing him.’ There’s a lot of people that think his stock is not what it normally would be. They think his UFC losses hurt him. A lot of people worked with him when he was very unhappy and I think that’s the memory that they have. I’m saying from management, I’m not the talent. I think the talent knows what a big deal this is.”
