"I Love Phil" - Top female AEW star breaks silence on CM Punk's return to WWE
A former AEW Women's World Champion has spoken her thoughts about one of the biggest moves the wrestling industry has experienced - CM Punk's return to WWE. Punk returned to the pro wrestling juggernaut after a two-year stint in AEW.
Punk's sacking from Tony Khan's company was as controversial as the pop that he experienced when he returned to WWE at Survivor Series: WarGames 2023 Premium Live Event. Over at Busted Open Radio, top AEW star Thunder Rosa opened up about her opinion.
"I have to confess, it was a touch of heartbreak and happiness. I love Phil, as a person. I want him to be successful. I wish things would have gone completely different and that he was still working with us. I'm really happy that he is fulfilling his dream because he loves professional wrestling and he has a very strong passion for professional wrestling."
Rosa also revealed her experience working with The Voice of the Voiceless:
"Working with Phil, in my perspective, I'm talking about me, it has been positive, and enriching. I really feel we all deserve second chances, I firmly believe in second chances. This is a way that, everybody needs to recognize that Phil has had many chances and this is his last chance in professional wrestling. A lot of people thought it was never going to happen and it was a huge surprise," she said. [H/T: Fightful]
