Former WWE Superstar CM Punk has not been seen on WWE television since the 2014 edition of the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He walked out of the company the next day and has not looked back since then. Following his WWE exit, many fans have been wanting to see Punk make his return to the company every year. He has yet to make his return to the squared circle and at this point, it seems very unlikely. A WWE Superstar was also previously punished for ripping off CM Punk.
CM Punk had been in talks with AEW for quite a while as indicated by reports and it all came true as The Second City Saint made his return to pro wrestling on AEW Rampage: The First Dance back in August last year.
During the post-AEW All Out media scrum, CM Punk verbally attacked Colt Cabana, Hangman Page, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks. Ace Steel’s wife, who has a broken foot, was in the room when Ace and CM Punk fought Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks backstage at AEW All Out.
Harwood revealed on his new podcast, “FTR With Dax Harwood,” how he FaceTimed CM Punk after the brawl at AEW All Out. He also said Punk bought $500 Starbucks gift cards for Britt Baker and other AEW female stars.
“I was like, ‘Dude are you okay? Do you need me? I’ll come right now to help you out or get you cleaned up or whatever. He said, ‘No, no, everything’s fine. It’s died down, we’re good.’
It only seems like we’re only getting a portion of the story or what this journalist wants to put out,” Harwood said. “Whether he has a bias or whether he has a grudge against one of the other parties, that’s just how I felt.
I know what I perceived to be the truth, and from the things that I’ve read and heard, there’s partial truth and partial things that are a bit exaggerated.
