Bryan Danielson comments on his role in CM Punk being fired from AEW

When AEW President Tony Khan discussed CM Punk being fired from AEW, he mentioned that he spoke with a “discipline committee” prior to making his final decision. It was later reported that there was a three-person committee including AEW General Counsel Chris Peck and Bryan Danielson along with an outside attorney.

During an appearance on the Maggie & Perloff podcast, Danielson commented on his role in Punk being fired…

“Yeah, I’m a part of the disciplinary committee. Clearly, what happened has happened. I’m somebody who, I like CM Punk, I think he brought a lot to AEW while he was there. There is not a lot I can say about it, or that I want to say about it about. I am part of it. It’s really funny, you know how the internet is. Some people say I was the head of the disciplinary committee. There were more than three people involved in this decision, but most of them were all lawyers. To say that I was the head, I don’t even have a college degree [laughs]. I’m not in there bossing people around. I am part of the disciplinary committee.”

“I have a lot of empathy. I’m grateful for the time he was able to spend in AEW. He did a great job for us. I wish him the best in his future and I hope his run there [in WWE] goes well.” (quotes courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
