CM Punk was the dominant force in AEW, and they regard another dominant force in AEW as a light threat. Punk is of the opinion that Kenny Omega will be defeated in less than 30 minutes.
Punk has not yet fully unlocked its potential in AEW. While he is not currently taking center stage, the momentum from the crowd and his performance are sure to push him in that direction. AEW has a system of who is better than anyone and punk has yet to rise.
Kenny Omega sitting on the throne with his world heavyweight champion is the gold standard on the AEW list. Punk appeared in the interview Sports 1, He revealed that Omega won’t get the same amount of time in the ring with Punk as he did with Brian Danielson.
The AEW title is definitely what I want. I look at my career, I haven’t wrestled for seven years, I just can’t come and challenge for the world title. I see a situation where Brian Danielson comes in and wrestles Kenny Omega in his first match, but it’s not for the title. When I wrestle Kenny Omega, it will be for the title and I won’t have 30 minutes to beat him.
CM Punk won Derby Allin, Powerhouse Hobbs and Daniel Garcia 3-0. If AEW goes in the direction of maintaining its winning streak, a match with Kenny Omega could be the biggest reward AEW can give its fans.
