Bryan Danielson confirmed being part of the disciplinary committee that ousted CM Punk from AEW in September. On the latest episode of his podcast, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash explained why Punk’s exit must have been warranted. According to Nash, AEW firing Punk was the right call if someone as smart as Danielson was involved in the decision. Last week, Danielson clarified that he was not in charge of the committee, but was one of the people who decided whether Punk should stay or leave.
On November 25, CM Punk returned to WWE at Survivor Series: WarGames in his hometown of Chicago. Kevin Nash, a long-time friend of Triple H, expressed his contentment with Triple H taking ownership of WWE since replacing Vince McMahon in 2022. Nash also recalled why a major change was made to his brief WWE storyline with Punk and Triple H in 2011.
