AEW Star Doesn’t Care At All About CM Punk’s Bombshell Comments

CM Punk WWE SmackDown

A whirlwind few days for AEW saw CM Punk finally tell his side of the story of his ill-fated time in the company but Eddie Kingston doesn’t care about that.

CM Punk claimed AEW wasn’t a real business and Tony Khan wasn’t a real boss with his bombshell remarks as the former AEW World Champion also revealed what happened in his infamous altercation with Jack Perry.

Meanwhile, there were huge changes in the company as AEW had its first mass release of stars from its roster with several stars let go.

Speaking to Adrian Hernandez, Eddie Kingston was asked for his thoughts on CM Punk’s comments about his time in AEW but Kingston was more concerned about those in the company who recently lost their jobs:

You know what I’m more concerned about? I’m not gonna front, are the people who lost their jobs (at AEW). Honestly. That’s what I’m more worried about. I’m more worried about Dasha (Kuret) and I’m more worried about Anthony Henry and Stu Grayson and others who got — sorry if I didn’t mention y’all names, no disrespect but I’m worried about them.

My heart goes out to them, so I know how it feels to lose a job. Not just that, I mean a job. Either way you look at this, wrestling or not, it’s still a job and that’s how you feed yourself and your family. My heart goes out to them.

That’s what I’m more concerned about, than what Phil said. Because the people that got let go, did work for us and now they have to find another way to make ends meet and that’s what concerns me more. Whether I knew them, because some I knew very well, some I didn’t.

Still, my heart goes out to them. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m not saying it’s wrong. What I am saying, it’s the business. People get hired and fired daily. It’s just part of it but still, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t leave me heartbroken that some of the people like Dasha, that I won’t see every week, that I loved seeing every week, who put a smile on my face every week I saw her. That’s what I’m more concerned about… I care. I care about that more. That’s it.

Eddie Kingston Says CM Punk Comments Are “Phil Being Phil”

Eddie Kingston was again pressed for his thoughts on what CM Punk said and he simply didn’t care about what Punk had to say:

And? He don’t work for us. I don’t give a f**k. Honestly, honestly, he don’t work for AEW, so I don’t care.

That’s it, I’m not even mad. If it sounds like I’m mad, it’s just the way I talk (he laughed). But no, I don’t care. I know other people do but I really don’t give a f**k because he doesn’t work for AEW. That’s the way I look at it. If he worked for AEW and did that, then I might feel a certain way, for a little bit and then I would just let it go and go, welp, that’s Phil being Phil.

Can’t control him, that’s his thing. He ain’t me and I ain’t him, so, but he doesn’t. So I don’t care what he does.
