Former WWE superstar CM Punk recently spoke to Screen Rant to hype his new horror movie Girl on the Third Floor, which releases in theaters and VOD today. During the interview, Punk was asked about AEW star Jon Moxley's bashing of the WWE, prompting Punk to advise AEW higher-ups to focus on their own product and stop talking about another.
I think AEW needs to focus on themselves and stop talking about WWE. Cody and The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, Jon Moxley, all those guys have something great going on. I just think it lessens and cheapens what they are doing when they constantly attack WWE. There hasn't been an alternative to WWE in so very long, and I think they do a disservice to themselves when they're trying to be the alternative but constantly bring up WWE.
But I understand, when people ask you the questions during the interviews you have to answer them. But that's just part of life. You have to learn how to navigate that. I would like them to just try to focus on their product and building it up and making it better. I think that would benefit all the fans.
