The "Talk Is Jericho" podcast was a great opportunity for Chris Jericho to comment on the current hottest topic in the wrestling scene: CM Punk's release from AEW. Chris Jericho revealed what was happening 'behind the curtain' and revealed the details of the conversation with CM Punk.

“I don’t want to dwell on this or talk about, but I should address it,” Jericho said, as quoted by pwmania.com! “CM Punk [is] no longer with AEW. Wembley was his last match, which what a way to go out if you’re going to go out.

I did speak to him, briefly, I was going to do a frankensteiner off the top, and I know that he does that sometimes, so I was curious if he was going to do it,” he said. “I went and talked to him for a bit, asked if he was going to do it, he wasn’t.

I told him I was going to do the GTS, with a straight face, and I think for a second he thought that I was going to”.

Chris Jericho on Tony Khan's decision

Chris Jericho thinks this is disappointing for both CM Punk and AEW.

Tony Khan had a tough decision to make, given CM Punk's popularity and importance to AEW. However, according to the reactions of many, Khan made the best possible decision for the future of the company. CM Punk certainly could have done it differently, but now it's too late!

“I was joking, of course. I did see him that day. It’s a regretful moment, what happened, but Tony Khan made his decision. CM Punk was a big part of AEW from the time he was here and if you’re going to go out, he went out on top by having this big match with Samoa Joe in a sold out stadium. That’s my thoughts on that”.
