So that’s what happened. AEW has come a long way in a short amount of time and they already have some signature moments in their history. Some of these have been very well received moments that have caused a major shakeup in AEW, often involving a new star coming in. That was the case last August, but he has been missing as of late. Now we know where he has been.
CM Punk defeated Maxwell Jacob Friedman in a dog collar match at Revolution but has not yet appeared live on an AEW show since. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Punk has been away filming the second season of the Starz series Heels. Punk appeared in the first season as well, along with other wrestlers. There is no word on when he will be returning to AEW TV.
Opinion: That is a lot better to hear than anything involving an injury of some kind. Punk has been a game changer for AEW and it would be awful to see him go on the shelf with some kind of an injury after the amazing MJF feud. I’m curious to see what is next for him, as Punk can elevate anyone that he is in the ring with and he seems interested in working with someone young and in need of a rub.
What do you think of Punk? What is next for him in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
