Cody Rhodes took to Twitter yesterday to respond to an interview conducted by ESPN with CM Punk.
Rhodes replied to a fan’s question about CM Punk entertaining the idea of signing a contract in person. This comes after CM Punk revealed in the ESPN interview that he was offered an AEW contract via text message.
“I think he was misquoted,” Rhodes stated “I know 1 of us had met with him in person, and yes I texted him plenty when we couldn’t connect on the actual phone, but not a contracted offer.”
Rhodes went on to state that he wouldn’t be surprised if CM Punk went back to WWE.
