Starrcast Promoter Conrad Thompson Talks Possibility Of CM Punk Signing With AEW

To promote Starrcast IV Weekend in Maryland, where tonight's AEW Full Gear 2019 pay-per-view will take place, Conrad Thompson appeared as a guest on the WINCLY Podcast to promote the festivities. Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On CM Punk appearing at Starrcast III: "I don’t think I’ve met a guy that there were more misconceptions about. I had read online and heard other people and you think you have an idea of how someone is gonna be and then in real life it’s nothing like that at all. Punk couldn’t have been cooler to me or my staff and it was the easiest, most professional relationship we’ve ever had at Starrcast. He couldn’t be more accommodating, gave fans a lot of time and was very patient with everyone. The diva tag will never be thrown around for CM Punk. He was a delight to work with and I hope we can do something together in the future."

On CM Punk not signing with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), but how it's still possible: "I don’t think there’s any real finality with AEW. They didn’t cut a deal right away but for that matter neither did Tony Schiavone and other talents. A lot of times we as fans speak with finality and this is a never say never type of deal. I don’t think it’s a ‘no’ but rather a ‘not yet.’ I haven’t really talked to him about it and I don’t care; I want him to be happy and do what he wants to do. But at one point we said, ‘CM Punk will never be back in WWE.’ But now it’s a conversation again. Maybe when all of these movie premieres are done and behind him and he’s looking around for his next project and the right offer comes along, I think he will do it. We’ve got enough hints that he’s not totally opposed to the idea. It’s just got to be the right deal and I don’t think he’s been offered the right deal at the right time yet. And timing is everything."
