Tommy Dreamer Says CM Punk Signing With AEW Reminds Him Of The Monday Night Wars


During a recent interview with Andy Malnoske at the ECPW Slam Fest 2021 event, Tommy Dreamer commented on CM Punk signing with AEW, wrestling during the pandemic, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On wrestling during the pandemic: “During the whole pandemic, the beauty about professional wrestling, the world literally stopped, but wrestling kept going and never stopped. And that’s such greatness for professional wrestling. I don’t think it gets enough credit. Working for Impact Wrestling, doing Busted Open on Sirius XM, wrestling in 2020 has been insane with AEW, and Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. So many great opportunities have come out for a lot of men and women that weren’t there for me when I started, but now that the world, hopefully is opening up, but the wrestling business has definitely opened up because of the circumstance that we have, and we’re seeing some of the best wrestling literally every night, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. It’s a great time to be a wrestling fan.”

On CM Punk signing with AEW reminding him of the Monday Night Wars: “It reminds me of the Monday Night Wars. AEW has definitely brought excitement back into professional wrestling. If Daniel Bryan or Bryan Danielson and CM Punk show up in AEW, it’s going to be like when Kevin Nash and Scott Hall showed up in WCW. They’re going to be The Outsiders. There’s a shift that’s been going on, but it’s must see television. I like the fact that they’re all on different nights because I don’t have enough DVR space to watch both at the same time, but those two guys, if that happens, it’ll be amazing for wrestling, and finally, we’ll stop hearing the ‘we want CM Punk’ chants.”
