Over on the Squared Circle subreddit, one user by the name of Fencer Supreme stated: “Mother****ing CM Punk just walked out to an INSANE crowd, gave a killer promo, looked up to the rafters at Sting and Darby Allin, announced a match with Allin at All Out, and then it went to a promo with Christian hyping a match with Kenny Omega. Just wanted to type all that out. Wrestling is good.”
