It’s worth a closer look. There are very few moments in recent memory that have been as well received as CM Punk’s AEW debut. After seven and a half years away from professional wrestling, Punk made his grand return in his hometown of Chicago to a thunderous reception. It was an amazing moment and now we get to see it from a different point of view.
The latest edition of Being The Elite includes footage of Punk backstage at the United Center on his way to the ring. Punk is seen backstage with the Elite and listening to the crowd chanting his name before going out. The video also includes the usual Being The Elite antics, including the team going shopping for new shoes in Chicago. The footage of Punk is at the beginning.
It was a big night. Check out Being The Elite plus Punk’s debut:
Opinion: The more I see from Punk’s debut, the more impressed I am. It was one of the best things done in wrestling in a good while and I could go for seeing more of it from every angle. Punk looked so emotional and the whole thing clearly meant a lot to him. This is the kind of thing that makes it look all the better, as you get a different look at something that was so great in the first place.
