Can you blame them? The wrestling world has been changing a lot in recent months and that has been a good thing in a lot of ways. Several wrestlers have been moving from one promotion to another and now it seems like we are going to be seeing more even bigger names doing the same. One in particular has caught the attention of the locker room he is about to be joining.

In an interview with,’s Cassidy Haynes the AEW locker room is excited over CM Punk possibly debuting for the company. No one is said to have any bad feelings about Punk, though there is no word on how interactions between Punk and Colt Cabana, an AEW producer, could go. Punk and Cabana went to court over issues stemming from Punk being sued by WWE. There is no word on when Punk will be debuting for the company, though he is expected to appear at one of their upcoming Chicago shows.

This could be interesting. Check out the Punk who might be coming to AEW:

CM Punk's Hometown Entrance

John Cena vs. CM Punk: SummerSlam 2011

CM Punk vs. Roman Reigns: Raw, Jan. 6, 2014

Opinion: I’m curious to see how this is going to go as Punk has been away for such a long time. He is coming into almost an entirely new world, even though he is going to have some friends around. The Cabana aspect could be very interesting as well, though hopefully everything will be fine enough while they are working. Punk is a huge get for AEW, and that should overcome any of the other issues.

What do you expect from Punk in AEW? Who do you want to see him face? Let us know in the comments below.
