Happy CM Punk Day! Yes, it is. The day when the Best In The World finally comes back to the big leagues, hitting AEW Rampage like an atomic bomb covered in ice cream bars. Or does he?
Essentially, for those who don’t spend their entire lives on wrasslin’ sites like I do, it seems like one of the best of all time is finally ready to come back to the squared circle after some, er, less than impressive bouts in MMA. But, he tried what he wanted to do rather than take Vince’s dollar to stay and tread water and the entire industry has been ravenous for a return ever since. And tonight, we ‘might’ get it. Suuuuure, AEW has not confirmed anything for THE BIGGEST SHOW OF AEW’S HISTORY IN CHICAGO but they have not shot it down either. Darby Allin has called out anyone “Even if you think you are the best in the world…” and QT Marshall said on Wednesday “Here in AEW we don’t promise anything we can’t deliver”. Astounding.
Normally, Punk himself would laugh these rumours off, tell us to not expect anything or tell us he is ‘elsewhere’ on that night. This time…first he says he is busy ‘at a screening’ tonight, BUT the screening is in Chicago and he knows we know, the fan and the icon in simple synchronicity. Then, when normally he would not be dragged in, he Instagrammed ‘05.11.21’, which is not the 5th November, remember America does it the other way around, nooooo….
05 = The Summer Of Punk in Ring Of Honor
11 = The Summer Of Punk in WWE
21 = LOOK, CM PUNK IS COMING TO AEW TONIGHT AND THIS IS THE MOST EXCITING WRESTLING THING SINCE Kenny Omega AND THE BUCKS SIGNED TO AEW.
Listen for Living Colour’s Cult Of Personality and then listen for me screaming over here in the UK.
