Cody Rhodes denied CM Punk's claim that AEW made him an offer through a text message
During a recent interview with ESPN, Punk said that he had received an offer from AEW through a text message "like a month ago."
Rhodes took to Twitter to respond to Punk's claims. Rhodes said that he feels like Punk was misquoted. While he said that he has "texted [Punk] plenty", he did not send an actual contracted offer.
Rhodes also said that he wouldn't be surprised to see Punk return to WWE. Punk had left WWE on very bad terms in 2014, and was sued by WWE physician Chris Amann. Punk has said that he believes that Vince McMahon was bankrolling Amann's lawsuit.

I think he was misquoted. I know 1 of us had met with him in person, and yes I texted him plenty when we couldn't connect on the actual phone, but not a contracted offer. I wouldn't be surprised if he went back to wwe. Regardless, great wrestler & guy. Door is open if he wants it https://t.co/3ityuurGGy— Cody Rhodes (@CodyRhodes) July 26, 2019
