Darby Allin seems to have nothing but respect for CM Punk.
Recently Allin, among others, spoke with ESPN about what working with Punk has been like since his return in August of 2021.
“Everyone wants the top spot, but not everyone wants to work for it,” Allin said. “But he works for it. He’ll go out there randomly on a Wednesday with a match announced like an hour before the show and kill it. He’s not a prima donna. He’s ready to rock. He’s ready to be put to work. That’s all I want everyone to do, is to be put to work. You’ve got guys saying, ‘I don’t feel like wrestling this week.’ Get the f— out of here. With him, it’s like, ‘Let’s go. I want to show people what I can do. I want to be put to work.’ Lead by example, and he’s the best at it.”Darby Allin
It certainly seems like Punk has been in top form both on-screen and in the locker room since coming back to wrestling. It will be interesting to see where his career goes from here, especially with his upcoming AEW World Title match against Hangman Adam Page this Sunday at Double or Nothing.
